The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
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) created man from a clot of congealed blood. (2) Read: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous, (3) who taught by the pen, (4) Has taught man that which he knew not. (5) Nay, verily, man becomes grossly overweening (6) Because he considers himself self-sufficient. (7) Surely your returning is to your Lord. (8) Did you see him who forbids (9) a servant (of Allah) when he prays? (10) Have you thought, if he had been on guidance (11) or enjoins true piety? (12) Seest thou if he denies (Truth) and turns away? (13) Knoweth he not that Allah beholdeth? (14) Let him beware! If he does not desist, We will drag him by the forelock -- (15) A forelock that lies, is sinful. (16) Then let him call his associates; (17) We will call the guards of hell. (18) Yes indeed; do not listen to him and prostrate, and become close to Us. (Command of Prostration # 14) ۩ (19)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
