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
Recite in the name of your Lord who created - (1) He created man from a clot of blood. (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) Despite this, the human being still tends to rebel (6) because he thinks that he is independent. (7) Indeed, to your Lord is the returning. (8) Have you seen the one who prohibits (9) A bondman of Ours when he prayeth (10) Have you seen if he is upon guidance (11) and enjoins piety? (12) Seest thou if he denies (Truth) 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) the lying, rebellious forehead! (16) Then, let him call upon his council (of helpers), (17) We also shall call the infernal guards. (18) No! Do not obey him. But prostrate and draw near [to Allah]. ۩ (19)
Almighty Allah's Truth.
