The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Read (Prophet Muhammad) in the Name of your Lord who created, (1) Created man from an embryo; (2) Read: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous, (3) Who taught by the pen - (4) The One Who taught man all what he did not know. (5) No! [But] indeed, man transgresses (6) In that he looketh upon himself as self-sufficient. (7) for, behold, unto thy Sustainer all must return. (8) HAST THOU ever considered him who tries to prevent (9) a servant [of God] from praying? (10) Have you seen if he was upon guidance (11) Or enjoins piety? (12) Have you thought that if he denies and turns away, (13) Does he, then, not know that God sees [all]? (14) Let him beware! If he desist not, We will drag him by the forelock,- (15) A lying, sinful forehead. (16) Then, let him call (for help) to his council (of comrades): (17) We will call the guards of hell. (18) Nay, Obey not thou him. But prostrate thyself, and draw near (unto Allah). ۩ (19)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
