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: In the Name of thy Lord who created, (1) created man from a clot [of blood]. (2) Recite: and your Lord is Most Generous, (3) Who taught by the pen - (4) Taught man that which he knew not. (5) Indeed, surely the human is very insolent (6) For he thinks he is sufficient in himself. (7) for, behold, unto thy Sustainer all must return. (8) Have you seen the one who forbids (9) A slave when he prayeth? (10) What will happen if the praying person is rightly guided (11) Or enjoined guarding (against evil)? (12) Do you see how he has denied the truth and turned away from it? (13) Does he not know that Allah does see? (14) No indeed; if he does not desist, We shall drag him by the forelock; (15) A forelock that lies, is sinful. (16) Then, let him call (for help) to his council (of comrades): (17) We will call the guards of Hell (to deal with him)! (18) No indeed; do thou not obey him, and bow thyself, and draw nigh. ۩ (19)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
