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 Compassionate, the Merciful
Proclaim! (or read!) in the name of thy Lord and Cherisher, Who created- (1) Created man from a clot. (2) Read, and your Lord only is the Most Beneficent, (3) Who taught by the pen, (4) taught the human what he did not know. (5) No indeed; surely Man waxes insolent, (6) Because he sees himself free from want. (7) Surely to your Lord is the return. (8) What do you think? Have you seen he who forbids (9) a worshipper from praying? (10) Seest thou if he is on (the road of) Guidance?- (11) or orders piety? (12) Have you seen if he denies and turns away - (13) Knoweth he not that Allah beholdeth? (14) Let him know that if he does not desist, We shall certainly drag him by his forelocks, (15) A forelock that lies, is sinful. (16) So let him summon his helpmates; (17) We will call the guards of hell. (18) By no means! Obey not thou him. Continue to adore, and continue to draw nigh. ۩ (19)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
