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 thou in the name of thy Lord Who hath created (1) Created man, out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood: (2) Recite: And thy Lord is the Most Generous, (3) Who has taught (the writing) by the pen [the first person to write was Prophet Idrees (Enoch)]. (4) Taught man what he did not know. (5) Nay, surely man transgresses; (6) Because he sees himself free from want. (7) However, (all things) will return to your Lord. (8) Have you (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) seen him (i.e. Abu Jahl) who prevents, (9) a servant [of God] from praying? (10) Do you think he is rightly guided, (11) or enjoins true piety? (12) Have you seen if he denies and turns away - (13) Knoweth he not that Allah doth see? (14) Nay! if he desist not, We would certainly smite his forehead, (15) A forelock that lies, is sinful. (16) Then let him summon his council, (17) [the while] We shall summon the forces of heavenly chastisement! (18) Nay, pay thou no heed to him, but prostrate thyself [before God] and draw close [unto Him]! ۩ (19)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
