Al-Alaq (The Clot, Recite), 19 ayat, Makkan sura

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful 


Read: In the name of thy Lord who createth * 1

Createth man from a clot * 2

Read: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous * 3

Who teacheth by the pen * 4

Teacheth man that which be knew not * 5

Nay, but verily man is rebellious * 6

That he thinketh himself independent * 7

Lo! unto thy Lord is the return * 8

Hast thou seen him who dissuadeth * 9

A slave when he prayeth? * 10

Hast thou seen if he (relieth) on the guidance (of Allah) * 11

Or enjoineth piety? * 12

Hast thou seen if he denieth (Allah's guidance) and is froward? * 13

Is he then unaware that Allah seeth? * 14

Nay, but if he cease not. We will seize him by the forelock * 15

The lying, sinful forelock * 16

Then let him call upon his henchmen * 17

We will call the guards of hell * 18

Nay! Obey not thou him. But prostrate thyself, and draw near (unto Allah) * 19
