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
Recite in the name of your Lord Who created, (1) created the human from a (blood) clot. (2) Read and your Lord is Most Honorable, (3) who taught by the Pen, (4) taught the human what he did not know. (5) Nay! man is most surely inordinate, (6) Because he sees himself self-sufficient. (7) Surely unto thy Lord is the Returning. (8) Hast thou seen him who dissuadeth (9) A votary when he turns to his devotions? (10) Do you think he is rightly guided, (11) or enjoins true piety? (12) What is your opinion if he denies and turns away, how wretched will be his state! (13) Does he not realize that God sees him? (14) Indeed, if he does not desist, We will seize him by the forelock, (15) his 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)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
