The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
19 verses, revealed in Mecca. First revelation of the Quran before The Pen (Al-Qalam)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Recite in the name of your Lord who created - (1) He created man from a clot. (2) Read! Your Lord is the Most Bountiful One (3) Who has taught (the writing) by the pen [the first person to write was Prophet Idrees (Enoch)]. (4) The One Who taught man all what he did not know. (5) Despite this, the human being still tends to rebel (6) Because he sees himself free from want. (7) Verily unto thy Lord is the return. (8) HAST THOU ever considered him who tries to prevent (9) A servant when he prays? (10) Have you considered if he were on the right way, (11) Or he commandeth piety? (12) What is your opinion if he denies and turns away, how wretched will be his state! (13) Does he not know that Allah sees everything? (14) And yet indeed if he does not desist We shall drag him by the forelock, (15) A lying, sinful forelock! (16) Then, let him call upon his council (of helpers), (17) We too shall summon the guards of Hell. (18) Yes indeed; do not listen to him and prostrate, and become close to Us. (Command of Prostration # 14) ۩ (19)
