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 Merciful, the Compassionate
Recite: In the Name of thy Lord who created, (1) created the human from a (blood) clot. (2) Recite thou: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous, (3) Who taught by the pen, (4) taught the human what he did not know. (5) Nay! Verily, man does transgress all bounds (in disbelief and evil deed, etc.). (6) whenever he believes himself to be self-sufficient: (7) Surely unto thy Lord is the Returning. (8) Have you seen him who restrains (9) A votary when he (turns) to pray? (10) Have you considered if he were on the right way, (11) or if he commands others to maintain piety!? (12) Have you seen if he denies and turns away - (13) Does he not know that God observes all things? (14) Indeed, if he does not desist, We will seize him by the forelock, (15) A forelock that lies, is sinful. (16) Then let him call his associates; (17) We will call the angels of Hell. (18) No, not at all. Never obey him. But prostrate yourself and become nigh (to your Lord). ۩ (19)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
