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
READ IN THE name of your Lord who created, (1) created man out of a germ-cell (2) Read: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous, (3) Who taught by the pen - (4) taught Man that he knew not. (5) Nay, verily, man becomes grossly overweening (6) that he sees himself sufficed. (7) Surely! Unto your Lord is the return. (8) Have you seen him who forbids (9) A votary when he (turns) to pray? (10) What is your opinion if he were upon guidance, (11) Or enjoineth piety? (12) Bethinkest thou, if he belieth and turneth away? (13) Knoweth he not that Allah beholdeth? (14) No indeed; if he does not desist, We shall drag him by the forelock; (15) a lying, sinful forelock. (16) Then let him call upon his henchmen! (17) We will call the guards of hell. (18) (Muhammad), never yield to him! Prostrate yourself and try to come closer to God. ۩ (19)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
