The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
19 verses, revealed in Mecca. First revelation of the Quran before The Pen (Al-Qalam)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
Recite in the name of your Lord who created - (1) created man from a clot of congealed blood. (2) Read! Your Lord is the Most Bountiful One (3) Who teacheth by the pen, (4) Taught man that which he knew not. (5) Nay! man is most surely inordinate, (6) For he thinks he is sufficient in himself. (7) for, behold, unto thy Sustainer all must return. (8) What do you think? Have you seen he who forbids (9) A slave when he prayeth? (10) Have you considered if he were on the right way, (11) Or enjoineth piety? (12) Have you thought that if he denies and turns away, (13) Knoweth he not that Allah beholdeth? (14) And yet indeed if he does not desist We shall drag him by the forelock, (15) The lying, sinful forelock - (16) Then let him summon his council, (17) We will call the angels of Hell. (18) Nay, pay thou no heed to him, but prostrate thyself [before God] and draw close [unto Him]! ۩ (19)
Almighty Allah's Truth.
