The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
19 verses, revealed in Mecca. First revelation of the Quran before The Pen (Al-Qalam)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
READ IN THE name of your Lord who created, (1) Createth man from a clot. (2) Read: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous, (3) who, by the pen, taught the human being: (4) Taught man that which he knew not. (5) Nay, surely man transgresses; (6) Because he considers himself self-sufficient. (7) truly, all will return to your Lord. (8) Seest thou one who forbids- (9) a servant [of God] from praying? (10) Tell me, if he (Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) is on the guidance (of Allah)? (11) or orders piety? (12) Tell me if he (the disbeliever, Abu Jahl) denies (the truth, i.e. this Quran), and turns away? (13) Knows he not that Allah does see (what he does)? (14) No! If he does not desist, We will surely drag him by the forelock - (15) his lying sinful forelock. (16) Then let him call upon his henchmen! (17) We shall call on the guards of Hell. (18) Nay, heed him not: But bow down in adoration, and bring thyself the closer (to Allah)! ۩ (19)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
