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 Beneficent, the Merciful
Read: In the name of thy Lord Who createth, (1) created man out of a germ-cell (2) Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous, (3) Who taught (to write) with the pen (4) taught the human what he did not know. (5) No! [But] indeed, man transgresses (6) As he considers himself independent! (7) Surely to your Lord is the return. (8) Hast thou seen him who dissuadeth (9) A slave (Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) when he prays? (10) Tell me, if he (Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) is on the guidance (of Allah)? (11) or bade to godfearing -- (12) Did you consider: what if he gives the lie (to the Truth) and turns away (from it)? (13) Does he not know that Allah sees everything? (14) By no means! If he desist not We shall seize and deal him by the forelock (15) A forelock, lying, sinning. (16) So let him call his associates, (17) [the while] We shall summon the forces of heavenly chastisement! (18) Nay, Obey not thou him. But prostrate thyself, and draw near (unto Allah). ۩ (19)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
