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 Compassionate
Recite: In the Name of thy Lord who created, (1) Created man from a clot. (2) Read! Your Lord is the Most Generous, (3) who has taught [man] the use of the pen (4) Taught man what he did not know. (5) Nay, surely man transgresses; (6) As he bethinkest himself selfsufficient. (7) Indeed, to your Lord is the returning. (8) Hast thou seen him who dissuadeth (9) A slave (Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) when he prays? (10) What thinkest thou? If he were upon guidance (11) Or enjoins piety? (12) Have you seen if he denies and turns away - (13) Does he not know that Allah sees? (14) Nay, if he desist not, We shall most surely drag him down upon his forehead (15) his lying, sinful forelock. (16) Then, let him call (for help) to his council (of comrades): (17) We, will call the Zabania (the harsh angels of Hell). (18) No, not at all. Never obey him. But prostrate yourself and become nigh (to your Lord). ۩ (19)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
