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 Dispenser of Grace
Recite in the name of your Lord Who created, (1) Hath created man from a clot! (2) Read! Your Lord is the Most Generous, (3) Who taught by the pen - (4) taught man what he did not know! (5) Yet man behaves arrogantly, (6) Because he sees himself self-sufficient. (7) Surely! Unto your Lord is the return. (8) Have you seen him who forbids (9) A bondman of Ours when he prayeth (10) Have you considered if he were on the right way, (11) Or enjoineth 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) No indeed; surely, if he gives not over, We shall seize him by the forelock, (15) The lying, sinful forelock - (16) So let him now call his gang! (17) We too would summon the braves of the army. (18) Nay, pay thou no heed to him, but prostrate thyself [before God] and draw close [unto Him]! ۩ (19)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
