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 Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
READ IN THE name of your Lord who created, (1) created the human from a (blood) clot. (2) Read, and your Lord only is the Most Beneficent, (3) Who has taught (the writing) by the pen [the first person to write was Prophet Idrees (Enoch)]. (4) Taught man that which he knew not. (5) Nay, but man doth transgress all bounds, (6) As he considers himself independent! (7) for, behold, unto thy Sustainer all must return. (8) Have you seen the one who forbids (9) a servant (of Allah) when he prays? (10) Have you seen if he is upon guidance (11) Or enjoineth piety? (12) Have you seen if he denies and turns away - (13) Does he not realize that God sees him? (14) Let him know that if he does not desist, We shall certainly drag him by his forelocks, (15) a lying, sinful forelock. (16) Then let him call upon his henchmen! (17) We will call the guards of Hell (to deal with him)! (18) Nay! (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him))! Do not obey him (Abu Jahl). Fall prostrate and draw near to Allah! ۩ (19)
