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 thy Lord Who createth, (1) Created man, out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood: (2) Recite thou: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous, (3) Who taught by the pen, (4) Has taught man that which he knew not. (5) No indeed; surely Man waxes insolent, (6) whenever he believes himself to be self-sufficient: (7) Lo! unto thy Lord is the return. (8) Have you seen the one who prohibits (9) a worshiper when he prays. (10) Tell me, if he (Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) is on the guidance (of Allah)? (11) Or he commandeth piety? (12) Have you considered if he gives the lie to the truth and turns (his) back? (13) does he not know that Allah sees? (14) Nay, but if he cease not We will seize him by the forelock - (15) A lying, sinful forehead. (16) Then, let him call upon his council (of helpers), (17) We shall call on the guards of Hell. (18) Yes indeed; do not listen to him and prostrate, and become close to Us. (Command of Prostration # 14) ۩ (19)
