اقْرَأْ بِاسْمِ رَبِّكَ الَّذِي خَلَقَ   “Iqra’ bismi Rabbikal ladhee khalaq”

“Read: In the name of thy Lord who createth” [Qur’an – Surah Alaq: verse 1]

خَلَقَ الْإِنْسَانَ مِنْ عَلَقٍ    “Khalaqal insaana min ‘alaq”

“Createth man from a clot.” [Qur’an – Surah Alaq: verse 2]

Points towards our ma’rifat (knowledge of our selves)
