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 with the name of your Lord Who created, (1) Createth man from a clot. (2) Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous, (3) who taught by the Pen, (4) The One Who taught man all what he did not know. (5) Nay, but man doth transgress all bounds, (6) Because he sees himself self-sufficient. (7) Surely to your Lord is the return. (8) Hast thou seen him who dissuadeth (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) No! If he does not desist, We will surely drag him by the forelock - (15) his lying, sinful forelock. (16) So, let him call upon his way! (17) We will call the angels of Hell. (18) Nay! obey him not, and make obeisance and draw nigh (to Allah). ۩ (19)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
