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 in the name of thy Sustainer, who has created (1) created man from a clot [of blood]. (2) Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous, (3) Who taught (to write) with the pen (4) Taught man what he knew not. (5) By no means: Verily man exorbitateth. (6) for he believes himself to be self-sufficient. (7) Surely unto thy Lord is the Returning. (8) Have you seen him who restrains (9) A slave when he prayeth? (10) Seest thou if he is on (the road of) Guidance?- (11) Or enjoins piety? (12) What will happen if the prohibiting rejects the Truth and turns away from it!? (13) Does he, then, not know that God sees [all]? (14) Nay! If he (Abu Jahl) ceases not, We will catch him by the forelock, (15) By the lying, the sinful forelock. (16) and then let him summon [to his aid] the counsels of his own [spurious] wisdom, (17) We too shall summon the guards of Hell. (18) (Muhammad), never yield to him! Prostrate yourself and try to come closer to God. ۩ (19)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
