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 thy Sustainer, who has created (1) Created man from an embryo; (2) Read - for thy Sustainer is the Most Bountiful One (3) He Who taught (the use of) the pen,- (4) Taught man what he did not know. (5) Nay! man is most surely inordinate, (6) Because he sees himself self-sufficient. (7) Lo! unto thy Lord is the return. (8) Seest thou one who forbids- (9) A servant when he prays? (10) Hast thou seen if he relieth on the guidance (of Allah) (11) or if he commands others to maintain piety!? (12) What thinkest thou? If he cries lies, and turns away - (13) Does he not know that God observes all things? (14) No! If he does not desist, We will surely drag him by the forelock - (15) The lying, sinful forelock - (16) So let him summon his helpmates; (17) We shall call on the guards of Hell. (18) Nay, heed him not: But bow down in adoration, and bring thyself the closer (to Allah)! ۩ (19)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
