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) Has created man from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood). (2) Recite, and your Lord is the most Generous - (3) Who teacheth by the pen, (4) Taught man that which he knew not. (5) Nay, surely man transgresses; (6) that he sees himself sufficed. (7) Surely to your Lord is your return. (8) Did you see him who forbids (9) A servant when he prays? (10) Have you thought, if he had been on guidance (11) and enjoins piety? (12) Do you see how he has denied the truth and turned away from it? (13) Does he, then, not know that God sees [all]? (14) Let him know that if he does not desist, We shall certainly drag him by his forelocks, (15) The lying, sinful forelock - (16) Let him call on his associates for help (17) We will now call the guards! (18) Beware! Do not obey him, but bow in adoration and draw near (to your Lord). ۩ (19)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
