The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
19 verses, revealed in Mecca. First revelation of the Quran before The Pen (Al-Qalam)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, 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, by the pen, taught the human being: (4) Has taught man that which he knew not. (5) Nay, but man doth transgress all bounds, (6) As he bethinkest himself selfsufficient. (7) Indeed towards your Lord only is the return. (8) What do you think? Have you seen he who forbids (9) A votary when he (turns) to pray? (10) What thinkest thou? If he were upon guidance (11) or is concerned with God-consciousness? (12) Seest thou if he denies (Truth) and turns away? (13) Does he not know that Allah sees everything? (14) Nay, if he desist not, We shall most surely drag him down upon his forehead (15) the lying, rebellious forehead! (16) and then let him summon [to his aid] the counsels of his own [spurious] wisdom, (17) We shall call the guards of Hell. (18) Nay, heed him not: But bow down in adoration, and bring thyself the closer (to Allah)! ۩ (19)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
