The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
19 verses, revealed in Mecca. First revelation of the Quran before The Pen (Al-Qalam)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
Read in the name of your Lord Who created. (1) created man from a clot [of blood]. (2) Recite, and your Lord is the most Generous - (3) who taught by the pen, (4) Hath taught man that which he knew not. (5) Nay, verily, man becomes grossly overweening (6) That he thinketh himself independent! (7) However, (all things) will return to your Lord. (8) Have you (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) seen him (i.e. Abu Jahl) who prevents, (9) A slave when he prayeth? (10) Hast thou considered whether he is on the right way, (11) or enjoins true piety? (12) What is your opinion if he denies and turns away, how wretched will be his state! (13) Is he then unaware that Allah seeth? (14) And yet indeed if he does not desist We shall drag him by the forelock, (15) a lying, sinful forelock. (16) So let him summon his helpmates; (17) We, will call the Zabania (the harsh angels of Hell). (18) Beware! Do not obey him, but bow in adoration and draw near (to your Lord). ۩ (19)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
