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 Merciful, the Most Merciful
Recite thou in the name of thy Lord Who hath created (1) created man from a clot [of blood]. (2) Recite thou: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous, (3) Who hath taught mankind by the pen (4) He taught the human being what he did not know. (5) Nay! man is most surely inordinate, (6) Because he sees himself self-sufficient. (7) Surely to your Lord is the return. (8) Hast thou seen him who dissuadeth (9) A bondman when he offers the prayer? (10) Have you seen if he was upon guidance (11) He would enjoin piety, so how good it would be! (12) Hast thou seen if he denieth (Allah's guidance) and is froward? (13) Knows he not that Allah does see (what he does)? (14) Indeed, if he does not desist, We will seize him by the forelock, (15) A lying, sinful forehead. (16) Then let him summon his council, (17) We shall call on the guards of Hell. (18) No, indeed; do not obey him! Prostrate and come nearer (to Allah). ۩ (19)
