The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
19 verses, revealed in Mecca. First revelation of the Quran before The Pen (Al-Qalam)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Recite: In the Name of thy Lord who created, (1) created the human from a (blood) clot. (2) Recite! Your Lord is the most Honorable One, (3) who taught by the pen, (4) Taught man that which he knew not. (5) And yet, but yet man is rebellious, (6) Because he sees himself self-sufficient. (7) Verily, to thy Lord is the return (of all). (8) What do you think? Have you seen he who forbids (9) a servant (of Allah) when he prays? (10) Do you think he is rightly guided, (11) Or he commandeth piety? (12) Tell me if he (the disbeliever, Abu Jahl) denies (the truth, i.e. this Quran), and turns away? (13) Knows he not that Allah does see (what he does)? (14) Let him know that if he does not desist, We shall certainly drag him by his forelocks, (15) A forelock that lies, is sinful. (16) So let him now call his gang! (17) We will call the guards of Hell (to deal with him)! (18) No indeed! Do not obey him, but prostrate yourself and come closer to God. ۩ (19)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
