The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
19 verses, revealed in Mecca. First revelation of the Quran before The Pen (Al-Qalam)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Read! In the name of your Lord, who created: (1) Hath created man from a clot! (2) Read - for thy Sustainer is the Most Bountiful One (3) Who has taught (the writing) by the pen [the first person to write was Prophet Idrees (Enoch)]. (4) Teacheth man that which he knew not. (5) Nay! Verily, man does transgress all bounds (in disbelief and evil deed, etc.). (6) Because he sees himself free from want. (7) Indeed, to your Lord is the returning. (8) What thinkest thou? He who forbids (9) A bondman when he offers the prayer? (10) Did you consider: what if he is on the Right Way, (11) or enjoins true piety? (12) Bethinkest thou, if he belieth and turneth away? (13) Does he not know that Allah sees? (14) Let him beware! If he desist not, We will drag him by the forelock,- (15) By the lying, the sinful forelock. (16) So let him now call his gang! (17) We also shall call the infernal guards. (18) Yes indeed; do not listen to him and prostrate, and become close to Us. (Command of Prostration # 14) ۩ (19)
