The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
19 verses, revealed in Mecca. First revelation of the Quran before The Pen (Al-Qalam)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Recite: In the Name of thy Lord who created, (1) Created man from an embryo; (2) Read and your Lord is Most Honorable, (3) Who has taught (the writing) by the pen [the first person to write was Prophet Idrees (Enoch)]. (4) He taught the human being what he did not know. (5) By no means: Verily man exorbitateth. (6) whenever he believes himself to be self-sufficient: (7) truly, all will return to your Lord. (8) What is your opinion regarding him who forbids (9) A bondman of Ours when he prayeth (10) Have you considered if he were on the right way, (11) He would enjoin piety, so how good it would be! (12) What will happen if the prohibiting rejects the Truth and turns away from it!? (13) Does he not know that God sees? (14) Nay, if he desist not, We shall most surely drag him down upon his forehead (15) A forelock that lies, is sinful. (16) Then let him call his associates; (17) and We too will call the stern and angry keepers of hell. (18) No indeed! Do not obey him, but prostrate yourself and come closer to God. ۩ (19)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
