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) He created man from a clot of blood. (2) Recite: And thy Lord is the Most Generous, (3) Who has taught (the writing) by the pen [the first person to write was Prophet Idrees (Enoch)]. (4) taught man what he did not know. (5) Nay, but man doth transgress all bounds, (6) As he considers himself independent! (7) Surely your returning is to your Lord. (8) What is your opinion regarding him who forbids (9) A slave (Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) when he prays? (10) What thinkest thou? If he were upon guidance (11) or orders piety? (12) Have you seen if he denies and turns away - (13) Does he not know that Allah does see? (14) Let him beware! If he does not desist, We will drag him by the forelock -- (15) A lying, sinful forehead. (16) So let him call his associates, (17) We will call the guards of hell. (18) Beware! Do not obey him, but bow in adoration and draw near (to your Lord). ۩ (19)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
