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
READ in the name of thy Sustainer, who has created (1) Created man from a clot. (2) Recite: and your Lord is Most Generous, (3) Who teacheth by the pen, (4) Taught man what he did not know. (5) Yet man behaves arrogantly, (6) In that he looketh upon himself as self-sufficient. (7) for, behold, unto thy Sustainer all must return. (8) What is your opinion regarding him who forbids (9) A slave when he prayeth? (10) What thinkest thou? If he were upon guidance (11) He would enjoin piety, so how good it would be! (12) Did you consider: what if he gives the lie (to the Truth) and turns away (from it)? (13) Does he not know that God observes all things? (14) Let him know that if he does not desist, We shall certainly drag him by his forelocks, (15) A lying, sinful forelock! (16) Then let him call his associates; (17) We, will call the Zabania (the harsh angels of Hell). (18) (Muhammad), never yield to him! Prostrate yourself and try to come closer to God. ۩ (19)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
