The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
19 verses, revealed in Mecca. First revelation of the Quran before The Pen (Al-Qalam)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Read: In the name of thy Lord Who createth, (1) Created man from an embryo; (2) Recite, and your Lord is the most Generous - (3) who taught by the pen, (4) taught man what he did not know. (5) Nay, surely man transgresses; (6) Because he sees himself self-sufficient. (7) Lo! unto thy Lord is the return. (8) Have you seen him who restrains (9) a servant [of God] from praying? (10) Tell me, if he (Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) is on the guidance (of Allah)? (11) or enjoins true piety? (12) Bethinkest thou, if he belieth and turneth away? (13) Does he, then, not know that God sees [all]? (14) Let him beware! If he does not desist, We will drag him by the forelock -- (15) his lying, sinful forelock. (16) Let him call on his associates for help (17) [the while] We shall summon the forces of heavenly chastisement! (18) Nay! obey him not, and make obeisance and draw nigh (to Allah). ۩ (19)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
