Read! In the Name of your Lord, Who has created (all that exists),

Has created man from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood).

Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous,

Who has taught (the writing) by the pen [the first person to write was Prophet Idrees (Enoch)],

Has taught man that which he knew not

– Surah al-Alaq (96:1-5) –
