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 Merciful, the Compassionate
Recite thou in the name of thy Lord Who hath created (1) Created man, out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood: (2) Read - for thy Sustainer is the Most Bountiful One (3) The One Who taught to write with the pen. (4) taught man what he did not know. (5) Nay! Verily, man does transgress all bounds (in disbelief and evil deed, etc.). (6) for he thinks himself self-sufficient. (7) However, (all things) will return to your Lord. (8) What thinkest thou? He who forbids (9) a worshiper when he prays. (10) What will happen if the praying person is rightly guided (11) Or enjoins piety? (12) What is your opinion if he denies and turns away, how wretched will be his state! (13) Does he, then, not know that God sees [all]? (14) By no means! If he desist not We shall seize and deal him by the forelock (15) The lying, sinful forelock - (16) Then let him call his associates; (17) [the while] We shall summon the forces of heavenly chastisement! (18) No, not at all. Never obey him. But prostrate yourself and become nigh (to your Lord). ۩ (19)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
