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 Beneficent, the Merciful
Recite in the name of your Lord Who created, (1) Created man from an embryo; (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) The One Who taught man all what he did not know. (5) Yet man behaves arrogantly, (6) Because he considers himself self-sufficient. (7) for, behold, unto thy Sustainer all must return. (8) Have you seen him who restrains (9) A servant when he prays? (10) Hast thou seen if he relieth on the guidance (of Allah) (11) Or enjoineth piety? (12) Have you seen if he denies and turns away - (13) Does he, then, not know that God sees [all]? (14) Nay! if he desist not, We would certainly smite his forehead, (15) his lying, sinful forelock. (16) So let him call his associates, (17) [the while] We shall summon the forces of heavenly chastisement! (18) Nay! obey him not, and make obeisance and draw nigh (to Allah). ۩ (19)
