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 Most Merciful
Read in the name of your Lord Who created. (1) Created man from a clot. (2) Read: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous, (3) He Who taught (the use of) the pen,- (4) taught the human what he did not know. (5) Nay, surely man transgresses; (6) That he thinketh himself independent! (7) Indeed, to your Lord is the return. (8) What is your opinion regarding him who forbids (9) A votary when he (turns) to pray? (10) Have you thought, if he had been on guidance (11) Or enjoineth piety? (12) What thinkest thou? If he cries lies, and turns away - (13) does he not know that Allah sees? (14) No! If he does not desist, We will surely drag him by the forelock - (15) A lying, sinful forehead. (16) Then, let him call his assembly, (17) We will now call the guards! (18) No indeed! Do not obey him, but prostrate yourself and come closer to God. ۩ (19)
