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 Merciful, the Compassionate
Recite thou in the name of thy Lord Who hath created (1) created Man of a blood-clot. (2) Read, and your Lord only is the Most Beneficent, (3) Who taught by the pen, (4) taught man what he did not know! (5) No! [But] indeed, man transgresses (6) In that he looketh upon himself as self-sufficient. (7) Lo! unto thy Lord is the return. (8) Hast thou seen him who dissuadeth (9) a servant when he prays -- (10) Bethinkest thou, if he is himself guided, (11) or if he commands others to maintain piety!? (12) Have you thought that if he denies and turns away, (13) Is he then unaware that Allah seeth? (14) No indeed; surely, if he gives not over, We shall seize him by the forelock, (15) A forelock that lies, is sinful. (16) So, let him call upon his way! (17) We, will call the Zabania (the harsh angels of Hell). (18) No indeed; do thou not obey him, and bow thyself, and draw nigh. ۩ (19)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
