Surat Al-Alaq

In the name of God, the most gracious, the most merciful

Recite in the name of your Lord who created (1) He created man from a clot (2) Recite, and your Lord is Most Generous (3) Who taught by the pen (4) Blame man for what he did not know (5) No, indeed man is tyrannical (6) once they think they are self-sufficient (7) But surely to your Lord is the return ˹of all˺(8) Have you seen the man who prevents (9) a servant ˹of Ours˺ from praying? (10) What if this servant is rightly guided (11) or encourages righteousness? (12) What if that man persists in denial and turns away? (13) Does he not know that Allah sees all? (14) But no! If he does not desist, We will certainly drag him by the forelock (15) a lying, sinful forelock (16) So let him call his associates (17) We will call the wardens of Hell (18) Again, no! Never obey him O Prophet! Rather, continue to prostrate and draw near to Allah (19)
