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
Recite thou in the name of thy Lord Who hath created (1) created man out of a germ-cell (2) Recite thou: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous, (3) who, by the pen, taught the human being: (4) taught Man that he knew not. (5) Despite this, the human being still tends to rebel (6) because he thinks that he is independent. (7) Surely! Unto your Lord is the return. (8) Have you seen him who restrains (9) A servant when he prays? (10) What is your opinion if he were upon guidance, (11) or orders piety? (12) Have you seen if he denies and turns away - (13) Does he not know that God observes all things? (14) Let him beware! If he does not desist, We will drag him by the forelock -- (15) a lying, sinful forelock. (16) Then, let him call upon his council (of helpers), (17) and We too will call the stern and angry keepers of hell. (18) Nay! obey him not, and make obeisance and draw nigh (to Allah). ۩ (19)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
