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
READ IN THE name of your Lord who created, (1) Created man from a clot. (2) Read, for your Lord is most beneficent, (3) who taught by the Pen, (4) taught man what he did not know. (5) Indeed, surely the human is very insolent (6) For he thinks he is sufficient in himself. (7) for, behold, unto thy Sustainer all must return. (8) Hast thou seen him who dissuadeth (9) a servant when he prays -- (10) Hast thou seen if he relieth on the guidance (of Allah) (11) Or enjoineth piety? (12) What is your opinion if he denies and turns away, how wretched will be his state! (13) Does he not know that Allah does see? (14) Yes certainly, if he does not desist, We will seize him by the forelock. (15) A forelock that lies, is sinful. (16) So let him now call his gang! (17) We will call the angels of Hell. (18) No indeed! Do not obey him, but prostrate yourself and come closer to God. ۩ (19)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
