The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
19 verses, revealed in Mecca. First revelation of the Quran before The Pen (Al-Qalam)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
Recite in the name of your Lord Who created, (1) Has created man from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood). (2) Read, and your Lord only is the Most Beneficent, (3) He Who taught (the use of) the pen,- (4) Taught man what he did not know. (5) Despite this, the human being still tends to rebel (6) Because he sees himself self-sufficient. (7) truly, all will return to your Lord. (8) What thinkest thou? He who forbids (9) A servant when he prays? (10) What will happen if the praying person is rightly guided (11) Or enjoins Righteousness? (12) Have you thought that if he denies and turns away, (13) Does he not realize that God sees him? (14) No indeed; surely, if he gives not over, We shall seize him by the forelock, (15) By the lying, the sinful forelock. (16) Then let him call his associates; (17) We shall summon the guards of Hell. (18) No, not at all. Never obey him. But prostrate yourself and become nigh (to your Lord). ۩ (19)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
