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 Most Merciful
Read! In the Name of your Lord, Who has created (all that exists), (1) He created man from a clot of blood. (2) Recite thou: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous, (3) He Who taught (the use of) the pen,- (4) Taught man what he did not know. (5) Nay! Verily, man does transgress all bounds (in disbelief and evil deed, etc.). (6) As he bethinkest himself selfsufficient. (7) Indeed, to your Lord is the return. (8) Have you (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) seen him (i.e. Abu Jahl) who prevents, (9) A slave (Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) when he prays? (10) Hast thou considered whether he is on the right way, (11) Or enjoined guarding (against evil)? (12) What thinkest thou? If he cries lies, and turns away - (13) does he not know that Allah sees? (14) Let him beware! If he does not desist, We will drag him by the forelock -- (15) A lying, sinful forehead. (16) So let him call his associates, (17) We shall call the guards of Hell. (18) No, indeed; do not obey him! Prostrate and come nearer (to Allah). ۩ (19)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
