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 Compassionate, the Merciful
Recite: In the Name of thy Lord who created, (1) He created man from a clot of blood. (2) Recite! Your Lord is the most Honorable One, (3) Who has taught (the writing) by the pen [the first person to write was Prophet Idrees (Enoch)]. (4) taught man what he did not know! (5) Indeed, surely the human is very insolent (6) because he thinks that he is independent. (7) truly, all will return to your Lord. (8) Have you seen the one who prohibits (9) A slave (Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) when he prays? (10) Have you seen if he was upon guidance (11) or orders piety? (12) Seest thou if he denies (Truth) and turns away? (13) Did he not realise that Allah is watching? (14) Nay! if he desist not, We would certainly smite his forehead, (15) a lying, sinful forelock. (16) Then, let him call (for help) to his council (of comrades): (17) We, will call the Zabania (the harsh angels of Hell). (18) By no means! Obey not thou him. Continue to adore, and continue to draw nigh. ۩ (19)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
