First Section of the Surah Al Alaq PDF
Allah created Man and Taught Him.
The first section of the surah Al Alaq pdf states that Allah has created man wisely in the most perfect and beautiful form. Allah addressed Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and asked Him to start reading with the name of His Lord, who has created man from a clinging clot.
Allah is the most generous of His creatures as He taught man what he doesn’t know. The best thing about human beings is that Allah has given knowledge to them. This is the power of knowledge that Allah asked all the angels to bow before the “Adam.” Allah dignified and honored man by giving him knowledge, the most powerful tool in every age.
Man is contumacious.
A human being is Allah’s most beautiful creature, which Allah has created purposefully. Allah showered His blessings on man by giving him knowledge and a perfect physique, but man is contumacious and forgets all of His blessings.
Man forgets that all the things he has got are from Allah; he becomes proud of himself and considers himself powerful that he can do anything without assistance from others. Man forgets and exceeds his limits in the arrogance of being capable of doing anything; that is why Allah has called man cruel in the Holy Quran. He doesn’t recall that he had to return to Allah on a specific day.
