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 IN THE name of your Lord who created, (1) created man from a clot [of blood]. (2) Read and your Lord is Most Honorable, (3) who taught by the pen, (4) taught the human what he did not know. (5) Yet man behaves arrogantly, (6) Because he considers himself self-sufficient. (7) Verily, to thy Lord is the return (of all). (8) Have you seen one who prevents (9) a worshipper from praying? (10) Do you think he is rightly guided, (11) or orders piety? (12) Do you see how he has denied the truth and turned away from it? (13) Did he not know that God sees? (14) Nay! if he desist not, We would certainly smite his forehead, (15) A lying, sinful forehead. (16) and then let him summon [to his aid] the counsels of his own [spurious] wisdom, (17) We will call on the angels of punishment (to deal with him)! (18) Nay, Obey not thou him. But prostrate thyself, and draw near (unto Allah). ۩ (19)
