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 Beneficent, the Merciful
Read with the name of your Lord Who created, (1) Created man from an embryo; (2) Read - for thy Sustainer is the Most Bountiful One (3) The One Who taught to write with the pen. (4) He taught the human being what he did not know. (5) And yet, but yet man is rebellious, (6) For he thinks he is sufficient in himself. (7) Surely to your Lord is the return. (8) Have you seen one who prevents (9) A votary when he turns to his devotions? (10) Hast thou seen if he relieth on the guidance (of Allah) (11) and enjoins piety? (12) Tell me if he (the disbeliever, Abu Jahl) denies (the truth, i.e. this Quran), and turns away? (13) Does he not know that Allah sees everything? (14) And yet indeed if he does not desist We shall drag him by the forelock, (15) a lying, sinful forelock. (16) Then let him call his associates; (17) We will call the guards of Hell (to deal with him)! (18) Nay! obey him not, and make obeisance and draw nigh (to Allah). ۩ (19)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
