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) created Man of a blood-clot. (2) Proclaim! And thy Lord is Most Bountiful,- (3) Who taught by the pen - (4) Taught man what he knew not. (5) Despite this, the human being still tends to rebel (6) because he thinks that he is independent. (7) Lo! unto thy Lord is the return. (8) What do you think? Have you seen he who forbids (9) A bondman when he offers the prayer? (10) Have you thought, if he had been on guidance (11) Or enjoins Righteousness? (12) Seest thou if he denies (Truth) and turns away? (13) Does he not know that Allah sees everything? (14) Yes certainly, if he does not desist, We will seize him by the forelock. (15) the lying, rebellious forehead! (16) and then let him summon [to his aid] the counsels of his own [spurious] wisdom, (17) We will now call the guards! (18) Nay, Obey not thou him. But prostrate thyself, and draw near (unto Allah). ۩ (19)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
