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 your Lord who created, (1) Createth man from a clot. (2) Recite: and your Lord is Most Generous, (3) Who taught (to write) with the pen (4) taught man what he did not know! (5) No! [But] indeed, man transgresses (6) In that he looketh upon himself as self-sufficient. (7) Verily unto thy Lord is the return. (8) Bethinkest thou him who forbiddeth, (9) A votary when he (turns) to pray? (10) Hast thou seen if he relieth on the guidance (of Allah) (11) and enjoins piety? (12) Hast thou considered whether he may [not] be giving the lie to the truth and turning his back [upon it]? (13) Does he not know that Allah sees? (14) By no means! If he desist not We shall seize and deal him by the forelock (15) A lying, sinful forelock! (16) So let him summon his helpmates; (17) We will call the guards of Hell (to deal with him)! (18) Yes indeed; do not listen to him and prostrate, and become close to Us. (Command of Prostration # 14) ۩ (19)
