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 thy Lord Who createth, (1) created man from a clot [of blood]. (2) Read: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous, (3) The One Who taught to write with the pen. (4) taught man what he did not know. (5) Indeed, surely the human is very insolent (6) For he thinks he is sufficient in himself. (7) Indeed, to your Lord is the return. (8) Have you seen the one who prohibits (9) a servant of Ours from prayer? (10) Do you think he is rightly guided, (11) Or enjoins righteousness? (12) Have you considered if he gives the lie to the truth and turns (his) back? (13) Did he not realise that Allah is watching? (14) Yes certainly, if he does not desist, We will seize him by the forelock. (15) his lying, sinful forelock. (16) Then, let him call (for help) to his council (of comrades): (17) We too would summon the braves of the army. (18) No! Do not obey him. But prostrate and draw near [to Allah]. ۩ (19)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
