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 Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
Read with the name of your Lord Who created, (1) He created man from a clot. (2) Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous, (3) Who taught by the pen, (4) taught Man that he knew not. (5) Nay! man is most surely inordinate, (6) whenever he believes himself to be self-sufficient: (7) Indeed, to your Lord is the returning. (8) Bethinkest thou him who forbiddeth, (9) A servant when he prays? (10) What is your opinion if he were upon guidance, (11) Or he commandeth piety? (12) Hast thou seen if he denieth (Allah's guidance) and is froward? (13) Is he then unaware that Allah seeth? (14) By no means! If he desist not We shall seize and deal him by the forelock (15) the lying, rebellious forehead! (16) So let him summon his helpmates; (17) We will now call the guards! (18) No! Do not obey him. But prostrate and draw near [to Allah]. ۩ (19)
