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 Merciful, the Compassionate
Read! In the name of your Lord, who created: (1) created the human from a (blood) clot. (2) Read, for your Lord is most beneficent, (3) who taught by the pen, (4) taught man what he did not know. (5) No indeed; surely Man waxes insolent, (6) As he bethinkest himself selfsufficient. (7) However, (all things) will return to your Lord. (8) Have you seen the one who prohibits (9) A servant when he prays? (10) Hast thou considered whether he is on the right way, (11) He would enjoin piety, so how good it would be! (12) Did you consider: what if he gives the lie (to the Truth) and turns away (from it)? (13) Does he not know that God sees? (14) No! If he does not desist, We will surely drag him by the forelock - (15) A forelock, lying, sinning. (16) Then let him call his associates; (17) We too shall summon the guards of Hell. (18) No, not at all. Never obey him. But prostrate yourself and become nigh (to your Lord). ۩ (19)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
