"Can he who was dead, to whom We gave life, and a light whereby he can walk amongst men, be like him who is in the depths of darkness, from which he can never come out?" — Holy Qur'an 6:122


Holy Quran Verses from Pickthall's Translation

Surah 'Alaq: The Cloth

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

096.001 Read: In the name of thy Lord Who createth,
096.002 Createth man from a clot.
096.003 Read: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous,
096.004 Who teacheth by the pen,
096.005 Teacheth man that which he knew not.
096.006 Nay, but verily man is rebellious
096.007 That he thinketh himself independent!
096.008 Lo! unto thy Lord is the return.
096.009 Hast thou seen him who dissuadeth
096.010 A slave when he prayeth?
096.011 Hast thou seen if he relieth on the guidance (of Allah)
096.012 Or enjoineth piety?
096.013 Hast thou seen if he denieth (Allah's guidance) and is froward?
096.014 Is he then unaware that Allah seeth?
096.015 Nay, but if he cease not We will seize him by the forelock -
096.016 The lying, sinful forelock -
096.017 Then let him call upon his henchmen!
096.018 We will call the guards of hell.
096.019 Nay, Obey not thou him. But prostrate thyself, and draw near (unto Allah).


Let us pray (Sura 20, Ayat 114) 'Ya Rabbi Zidni Ilma!' ('O Lord! Increase me in knowledge.') and seek spiritual help (ta'yid) to understand our great faith.
