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 has created (all that exists), (1) created man from a clot of congealed blood. (2) Read, for your Lord is most beneficent, (3) Who hath taught mankind by the pen (4) taught man what he did not know. (5) No indeed; surely Man waxes insolent, (6) for he thinks himself self-sufficient. (7) Surely! Unto your Lord is the return. (8) Hast thou seen him who dissuadeth (9) A votary when he turns to his devotions? (10) Bethinkest thou, if he is himself guided, (11) or orders piety? (12) Have you thought that if he denies and turns away, (13) Does he, then, not know that God sees [all]? (14) Nay! if he desist not, We would certainly smite his forehead, (15) A lying, sinful forelock! (16) So let him summon his helpmates; (17) We too would summon the braves of the army. (18) Nay, heed him not: But bow down in adoration, and bring thyself the closer (to Allah)! ۩ (19)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
