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
Read: In the name of thy Lord Who createth, (1) Created man from a clinging substance. (2) Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous, (3) Who taught (to write) with the pen (4) taught Man that he knew not. (5) Nay, but verily man is rebellious (6) because he thinks that he is independent. (7) Indeed towards your Lord only is the return. (8) Seest thou one who forbids- (9) a worshiper when he prays. (10) Seest thou if he is on (the road of) Guidance?- (11) Or had enjoined piety, (it would have been better)? (12) Hast thou considered whether he may [not] be giving the lie to the truth and turning his back [upon it]? (13) Did he not realise that Allah is watching? (14) No indeed; if he does not desist, We shall drag him by the forelock; (15) a lying, sinful forelock. (16) Then let him summon his council, (17) We will call on the angels of punishment (to deal with him)! (18) Nay, heed him not: But bow down in adoration, and bring thyself the closer (to Allah)! ۩ (19)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
