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 man from a clot [of blood]. (2) Read! Your Lord is the Most Bountiful One (3) who has taught [man] the use of the pen (4) Taught man that which he knew not. (5) Nay, but verily man is rebellious (6) whenever he believes himself to be self-sufficient: (7) Lo! unto thy Lord is the return. (8) Hast thou seen him who dissuadeth (9) a servant of Ours from prayer? (10) Have you thought, if he had been on guidance (11) Or enjoineth piety? (12) Have you considered if he gives the lie to the truth and turns (his) back? (13) Does he not know that God sees? (14) Yes certainly, if he does not desist, We will seize him by the forelock. (15) A lying, sinful forelock! (16) Then let him call his associates; (17) [the while] We shall summon the forces of heavenly chastisement! (18) Nay, heed him not: But bow down in adoration, and bring thyself the closer (to Allah)! ۩ (19)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
