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 has created (all that exists), (1) created man from a clot of congealed blood. (2) Read, for your Lord is most beneficent, (3) Who taught by the pen, (4) He taught the human being what he did not know. (5) No indeed; surely Man waxes insolent, (6) that he sees himself sufficed. (7) for, behold, unto thy Sustainer all must return. (8) What do you think? Have you seen he who forbids (9) a worshipper from praying? (10) Hast thou seen if he relieth on the guidance (of Allah) (11) or is concerned with God-consciousness? (12) Have you considered if he gives the lie to the truth and turns (his) back? (13) Did he not realise that Allah is watching? (14) Indeed, if he does not desist, We will seize him by the forelock, (15) the lying, rebellious forehead! (16) Then let him call his associates; (17) We too shall summon the guards of Hell. (18) Beware! Do not obey him, but bow in adoration and draw near (to your Lord). ۩ (19)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
