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 thy Sustainer, who has created (1) Created man from a clinging substance. (2) Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous, (3) Who taught by the pen, (4) Taught man what he did not know. (5) No indeed; surely Man waxes insolent, (6) As he considers himself independent! (7) for, behold, unto thy Sustainer all must return. (8) What is your opinion regarding him who forbids (9) a servant (of Allah) when he prays? (10) Have you seen if he is upon guidance (11) Or enjoins piety? (12) Have you seen if he denies and turns away - (13) Is he then unaware that Allah seeth? (14) Nay, if he desist not, We shall most surely drag him down upon his forehead (15) the lying, rebellious forehead! (16) Then let him call upon his henchmen! (17) We also shall call the infernal guards. (18) (Muhammad), never yield to him! Prostrate yourself and try to come closer to God. ۩ (19)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
