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 Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
Read in the name of your Lord Who created. (1) Has created man from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood). (2) Read: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous, (3) The One Who taught to write with the pen. (4) Taught man that which he knew not. (5) Indeed, surely the human is very insolent (6) In that he looketh upon himself as self-sufficient. (7) Indeed towards your Lord only is the return. (8) What is your opinion regarding him who forbids (9) A servant when he prays? (10) Have you seen if he is upon guidance (11) Or enjoins piety? (12) Have you seen if he denies and turns away - (13) Does he not realize that God sees him? (14) No indeed; if he does not desist, We shall drag him by the forelock; (15) his lying, sinful forelock. (16) So let him call on his concourse! (17) We shall call on the guards of Hell. (18) Nay! (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him))! Do not obey him (Abu Jahl). Fall prostrate and draw near to Allah! ۩ (19)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
