The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
19 verses, revealed in Mecca. First revelation of the Quran before The Pen (Al-Qalam)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
Recite in the name of your Lord who created - (1) created man from a clot [of blood]. (2) Recite: And thy Lord is the Most Generous, (3) Who taught (to write) with the pen (4) taught man what he did not know! (5) No indeed; surely Man waxes insolent, (6) Because he sees himself free from want. (7) Lo! unto thy Lord is the return. (8) Have you (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) seen him (i.e. Abu Jahl) who prevents, (9) A bondman of Ours when he prayeth (10) Have you considered if he were on the right way, (11) He would enjoin piety, so how good it would be! (12) What is your opinion if he denies and turns away, how wretched will be his state! (13) Does he not know that Allah sees? (14) No indeed; if he does not desist, We shall drag him by the forelock; (15) A forelock, lying, sinning. (16) So let him summon his helpmates; (17) We too would summon the braves of the army. (18) Nay, pay thou no heed to him, but prostrate thyself [before God] and draw close [unto Him]! ۩ (19)
Almighty Allah's Truth.
