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 (Prophet Muhammad) in the Name of your Lord who created, (1) Created man from a clot. (2) Read and your Lord is Most Honorable, (3) Who taught by the pen, (4) Hath taught man that which he knew not. (5) Indeed, surely the human is very insolent (6) For he thinks he is sufficient in himself. (7) Surely to your Lord is your return. (8) Have you seen him who forbids (9) A slave when he prayeth? (10) Did you consider: what if he is on the Right Way, (11) or enjoins true piety? (12) What do you think? Have you seen if he belies and turns away, (13) Knoweth he not that Allah beholdeth? (14) No indeed; if he does not desist, We shall drag him by the forelock; (15) A lying, sinful forelock! (16) and then let him summon [to his aid] the counsels of his own [spurious] wisdom, (17) We will call the guards of hell. (18) (Muhammad), never yield to him! Prostrate yourself and try to come closer to God. ۩ (19)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
