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 Compassionate, the Merciful
Recite thou in the name of thy Lord Who hath created (1) Has created man from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood). (2) Recite: and your Lord is Most Generous, (3) Who hath taught mankind by the pen (4) Taught man what he knew not. (5) Nay, but verily man is rebellious (6) for he believes himself to be self-sufficient. (7) Lo! unto thy Lord is the return. (8) Have you seen him who forbids (9) a servant (of Allah) when he prays? (10) Tell me, if he (Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) is on the guidance (of Allah)? (11) Or enjoineth piety? (12) Have you considered if he gives the lie to the truth and turns (his) back? (13) Is he then unaware that Allah seeth? (14) Yes certainly, if he does not desist, We will seize him by the forelock. (15) A forelock, lying, sinning. (16) Then let him call his associates; (17) and We too will call the stern and angry keepers of hell. (18) By no means! Obey not thou him. Continue to adore, and continue to draw nigh. ۩ (19)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
