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 thy Sustainer, who has created (1) created man out of a germ-cell (2) Recite: And thy Lord is the Most Generous, (3) who taught by the pen, (4) The One Who taught man all what he did not know. (5) Despite this, the human being still tends to rebel (6) As he considers himself independent! (7) Verily unto thy Lord is the return. (8) What thinkest thou? He who forbids (9) A slave (Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) when he prays? (10) Tell me, if he (Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) is on the guidance (of Allah)? (11) or if he commands others to maintain piety!? (12) Hast thou seen if he denieth (Allah's guidance) and is froward? (13) Does he not know that Allah does see? (14) No indeed; surely, if he gives not over, We shall seize him by the forelock, (15) A lying, sinful forelock! (16) So let him call his associates, (17) We, will call the Zabania (the harsh angels of Hell). (18) Nay, heed him not: But bow down in adoration, and bring thyself the closer (to Allah)! ۩ (19)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
