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 Beneficent, the Merciful
Read! In the name of your Lord, who created: (1) Hath created man from a clot! (2) Read - for thy Sustainer is the Most Bountiful One (3) who taught by the pen, (4) taught man what he did not know! (5) Nay! man is most surely inordinate, (6) for he thinks himself self-sufficient. (7) Surely to your Lord is your return. (8) Did you see him who forbids (9) A servant when he prays? (10) Have you seen if he is upon guidance (11) or enjoins true piety? (12) What do you think? Have you seen if he belies and turns away, (13) Knoweth he not that Allah doth see? (14) Nay, if he desist not, We shall most surely drag him down upon his forehead (15) A lying, sinful forehead. (16) Let him call on his associates for help (17) We will call the guards of hell. (18) Nay, Obey not thou him. But prostrate thyself, and draw near (unto Allah). ۩ (19)
