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 benevolent, ever-merciful
READ in the name of thy Sustainer, who has created (1) Created man from a clinging substance. (2) Read! Your Lord is the Most Generous, (3) Who taught (to write) with the pen (4) He taught the human being what he did not know. (5) Nay! Verily, man does transgress all bounds (in disbelief and evil deed, etc.). (6) because he thinks that he is independent. (7) Surely your returning is to your Lord. (8) Have you seen one who prevents (9) a servant (of Allah) when he prays? (10) Tell me, if he (Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) is on the guidance (of Allah)? (11) Or had enjoined piety, (it would have been better)? (12) Tell me if he (the disbeliever, Abu Jahl) denies (the truth, i.e. this Quran), and turns away? (13) Did he not realise that Allah is watching? (14) Yes certainly, if he does not desist, We will seize him by the forelock. (15) A lying, sinful forelock! (16) So let him call his associates, (17) We will now call the guards! (18) Beware! Do not obey him, but bow in adoration and draw near (to your Lord). ۩ (19)
