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 Dispenser of Grace
Read! In the Name of your Lord, Who has created (all that exists), (1) Created man from a clot. (2) Read - for thy Sustainer is the Most Bountiful One (3) Who taught by the pen, (4) taught man what he did not know. (5) Nay, but verily man is rebellious (6) because he thinks that he is independent. (7) Surely to your Lord is your return. (8) Have you seen the one who prohibits (9) A bondman of Ours when he prayeth (10) Have you considered if he were on the right way, (11) Or enjoins Righteousness? (12) What is your opinion if he denies and turns away, how wretched will be his state! (13) Does he not realize that God sees him? (14) Let him beware! If he does not desist, We will drag him by the forelock -- (15) The lying, sinful forelock - (16) Then let him call his associates; (17) We too shall summon the guards of Hell. (18) Nay, pay thou no heed to him, but prostrate thyself [before God] and draw close [unto Him]! ۩ (19)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
