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 Merciful, the Compassionate
Read! In the name of your Lord, who created: (1) Created man, out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood: (2) Read! Your Lord is the Most Generous, (3) The One Who taught to write with the pen. (4) The One Who taught man all what he did not know. (5) No indeed; surely Man waxes insolent, (6) Because he sees himself free from want. (7) Surely! Unto your Lord is the return. (8) Have you seen one who prevents (9) a worshiper when he prays. (10) Hast thou seen if he relieth on the guidance (of Allah) (11) He would enjoin piety, so how good it would be! (12) Did you consider: what if he gives the lie (to the Truth) and turns away (from it)? (13) Does he, then, not know that God sees [all]? (14) No! If he does not desist, We will surely drag him by the forelock - (15) a lying, sinful forelock. (16) So let him call his associates, (17) We shall call the guards of Hell. (18) No indeed; do thou not obey him, and bow thyself, and draw nigh. ۩ (19)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
