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 with the name of your Lord Who created, (1) created Man of a blood-clot. (2) Read: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous, (3) Who hath taught mankind by the pen (4) Taught man what he knew not. (5) Indeed, surely the human is very insolent (6) because he thinks himself self-sufficient: (7) Surely to your Lord is your return. (8) Have you seen one who prevents (9) a servant (of Allah) when he prays? (10) Bethinkest thou, if he is himself guided, (11) Or enjoins Righteousness? (12) Have you considered if he gives the lie to the truth and turns (his) back? (13) Did he not know that God sees? (14) No indeed; surely, if he gives not over, We shall seize him by the forelock, (15) A lying, sinful forelock! (16) Then let him call his associates; (17) We shall call on 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.
