وَلَقَدۡ
خَلَقۡنَا
ٱلۡإِنسَٰنَ
مِن
سُلَٰلَةٖ
مِّن

And indeed, We created humankind1 from an extract of clay,
ثُمَّ
جَعَلۡنَٰهُ
نُطۡفَةٗ
فِي
قَرَارٖ
مَّكِينٖ
١٣
then placed each ˹human˺ as a sperm-drop1 in a secure place,
ثُمَّ
خَلَقۡنَا
ٱلنُّطۡفَةَ
عَلَقَةٗ
فَخَلَقۡنَا
ٱلۡعَلَقَةَ
مُضۡغَةٗ
فَخَلَقۡنَا
ٱلۡمُضۡغَةَ
عِظَٰمٗا
فَكَسَوۡنَا
ٱلۡعِظَٰمَ
لَحۡمٗا
ثُمَّ
أَنشَأۡنَٰهُ
خَلۡقًا
ءَاخَرَۚ
فَتَبَارَكَ
ٱللَّهُ
أَحۡسَنُ
ٱلۡخَٰلِقِينَ

then We developed the drop into a clinging clot ˹of blood˺, then developed the clot into a lump ˹of flesh˺, then developed the lump into bones, then clothed the bones with flesh, then We brought it into being as a new creation.1 So Blessed is Allah, the Best of Creators.
