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 your Lord who created, (1) created man out of a germ-cell (2) Read: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous, (3) Who taught by the pen, (4) He taught the human being what he did not know. (5) No! [But] indeed, man transgresses (6) for he thinks himself self-sufficient. (7) Lo! unto thy Lord is the return. (8) Seest thou one who forbids- (9) A slave when he prayeth? (10) Have you seen if he was upon guidance (11) Or enjoineth piety? (12) Did you consider: what if he gives the lie (to the Truth) and turns away (from it)? (13) Knoweth he not that Allah beholdeth? (14) Nay, but if he cease not We will seize him by the forelock - (15) his lying, sinful forelock. (16) Then, let him call his assembly, (17) We will call the angels of Hell. (18) Nay! obey him not, and make obeisance and draw nigh (to Allah). ۩ (19)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
