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 benevolent, ever-merciful
Recite thou in the name of thy Lord Who hath 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) No! [But] indeed, man transgresses (6) because he thinks himself self-sufficient: (7) Surely! Unto your Lord is the return. (8) Did you see him who forbids (9) A slave (Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) when he prays? (10) Have you seen if he was upon guidance (11) Or enjoins righteousness? (12) What thinkest thou? If he cries lies, and turns away - (13) Knoweth he not that Allah beholdeth? (14) Yes certainly, if he does not desist, We will seize him by the forelock. (15) A lying, sinful forelock! (16) and then let him summon [to his aid] the counsels of his own [spurious] wisdom, (17) [the while] We shall summon the forces of heavenly chastisement! (18) Beware! Do not obey him, but bow in adoration and draw near (to your Lord). ۩ (19)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
