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 Compassionate, the Merciful
Recite in the name of your Lord Who created, (1) Createth man from a clot. (2) Read! Your Lord is the Most Generous, (3) The One Who taught to write with the pen. (4) taught man what he did not know. (5) And yet, but yet man is rebellious, (6) Because he sees himself self-sufficient. (7) However, (all things) will return to your Lord. (8) Have you seen him who forbids (9) A slave when he prayeth? (10) What is your opinion if he were upon guidance, (11) or enjoins true piety? (12) Have you thought that if he denies and turns away, (13) Did he not know that God sees? (14) And yet indeed if he does not desist We shall drag him by the forelock, (15) A lying, sinful forehead. (16) So let him now call his gang! (17) [the while] We shall summon the forces of heavenly chastisement! (18) By no means! Obey not thou him. Continue to adore, and continue to draw nigh. ۩ (19)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
