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) Createth man from a clot. (2) Read, for your Lord is most beneficent, (3) who taught by the pen, (4) taught Man that he knew not. (5) Nay! Verily, man does transgress all bounds (in disbelief and evil deed, etc.). (6) for he thinks himself self-sufficient. (7) Surely your returning is to your Lord. (8) Have you seen one who prevents (9) A servant when he prays? (10) What will happen if the praying person is rightly guided (11) and enjoins piety? (12) Tell me if he (the disbeliever, Abu Jahl) denies (the truth, i.e. this Quran), and turns away? (13) Knoweth he not that Allah beholdeth? (14) Indeed, if he does not desist, We will seize him by the forelock, (15) A forelock, lying, sinning. (16) and then let him summon [to his aid] the counsels of his own [spurious] wisdom, (17) We will call on the angels of punishment (to deal with him)! (18) Nay! (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him))! Do not obey him (Abu Jahl). Fall prostrate and draw near to Allah! ۩ (19)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
