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! In the name of your Lord, who created: (1) created the human from a (blood) clot. (2) Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous, (3) Who has taught (the writing) by the pen [the first person to write was Prophet Idrees (Enoch)]. (4) taught man what he did not know. (5) No! [But] indeed, man transgresses (6) That he thinketh himself independent! (7) truly, all will return to your Lord. (8) Bethinkest thou him who forbiddeth, (9) a worshiper when he prays. (10) Have you considered if he were on the right way, (11) or orders piety? (12) Do you see how he has denied the truth and turned away from it? (13) Does he not realize that God sees him? (14) By no means! If he desist not We shall seize and deal him by the forelock (15) his lying, sinful forelock. (16) Then let him call his associates; (17) We will call the guards of Hell (to deal with him)! (18) No! Do not obey him. But prostrate and draw near [to Allah]. ۩ (19)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
