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 Gracious, Most Merciful
Read! In the name of your Lord, who created: (1) Created man from an embryo; (2) Recite thou: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous, (3) Who taught by the pen - (4) taught man what he did not know. (5) Nay, but man doth transgress all bounds, (6) because he thinks that he is independent. (7) Verily, to thy Lord is the return (of all). (8) Did you see him who forbids (9) A slave when he prayeth? (10) Have you thought, if he had been on guidance (11) or is concerned with God-consciousness? (12) Tell me if he (the disbeliever, Abu Jahl) denies (the truth, i.e. this Quran), and turns away? (13) Knoweth he not that Allah beholdeth? (14) Indeed, if he does not desist, We will seize him by the forelock, (15) A lying, sinful forelock! (16) Then let him call his associates; (17) We will now call the guards! (18) Nay, heed him not: But bow down in adoration, and bring thyself the closer (to Allah)! ۩ (19)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
