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 Compassionate, the Merciful
Recite in the name of your Lord Who created, (1) Createth man from a clot. (2) Read, and your Lord only is the Most Beneficent, (3) who taught by the pen, (4) taught man what he did not know. (5) Despite this, the human being still tends to rebel (6) for he believes himself to be self-sufficient. (7) Lo! unto thy Lord is the return. (8) Have you seen one who prevents (9) A slave when he prayeth? (10) What is your opinion if he were upon guidance, (11) or is concerned with God-consciousness? (12) Bethinkest thou, if he belieth and turneth away? (13) Did he not realise that Allah is watching? (14) Nay, if he desist not, We shall most surely drag him down upon his forehead (15) his lying, sinful forelock. (16) So let him now call his gang! (17) and We too will call the stern and angry keepers of hell. (18) By no means! Obey not thou him. Continue to adore, and continue to draw nigh. ۩ (19)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
