The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
19 verses, revealed in Mecca. First revelation of the Quran before The Pen (Al-Qalam)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
Recite in the name of your Lord Who created, (1) created man from a clot of congealed blood. (2) Read, for your Lord is most beneficent, (3) He Who taught (the use of) the pen,- (4) taught man what he did not know. (5) Nay! man is most surely inordinate, (6) Because he considers himself self-sufficient. (7) Verily, to thy Lord is the return (of all). (8) What thinkest thou? He who forbids (9) A votary when he turns to his devotions? (10) Have you seen if he is upon guidance (11) He would enjoin piety, so how good it would be! (12) Bethinkest thou, if he belieth and turneth away? (13) Does he not know that Allah does see? (14) Let him know that if he does not desist, We shall certainly drag him by his forelocks, (15) a lying, sinful forelock. (16) So let him call on his concourse! (17) We will call on the angels of punishment (to deal with him)! (18) Nay! (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him))! Do not obey him (Abu Jahl). Fall prostrate and draw near to Allah! ۩ (19)
