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 Beneficent, the Merciful
Recite in the name of your Lord Who created, (1) Created man, out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood: (2) Read, for your Lord is most beneficent, (3) Who taught by the pen, (4) taught man what he did not know. (5) Yet man behaves arrogantly, (6) As he bethinkest himself selfsufficient. (7) for, behold, unto thy Sustainer all must return. (8) Hast thou seen him who dissuadeth (9) A bondman of Ours when he prayeth (10) Hast thou seen if he relieth on the guidance (of Allah) (11) Or enjoins righteousness? (12) What will happen if the prohibiting rejects the Truth and turns away from it!? (13) Did he not realise that Allah is watching? (14) Let him beware! If he does not desist, We will drag him by the forelock -- (15) his lying sinful forelock. (16) So let him summon his helpmates; (17) We will call the guards of hell. (18) Nay, Obey not thou him. But prostrate thyself, and draw near (unto Allah). ۩ (19)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
