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 Most Merciful
Read in the name of your Lord Who created. (1) created Man of a blood-clot. (2) Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous, (3) Who hath taught mankind by the pen (4) taught man what he did not know. (5) Indeed, surely the human is very insolent (6) whenever he believes himself to be self-sufficient: (7) Verily, to thy Lord is the return (of all). (8) Have you seen him who restrains (9) a worshipper from praying? (10) What thinkest thou? If he were upon guidance (11) or orders piety? (12) Tell me if he (the disbeliever, Abu Jahl) denies (the truth, i.e. this Quran), 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) A lying, sinning forelock. (16) Let him call on his associates for help (17) We shall summon the guards of Hell. (18) No indeed! Do not obey him, but prostrate yourself and come closer to God. ۩ (19)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
