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 Compassionate
READ IN THE name of your Lord who created, (1) Created man from an embryo; (2) Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous, (3) Who taught by the pen - (4) Taught man that which he knew not. (5) Nay! man is most surely inordinate, (6) for he believes himself to be self-sufficient. (7) for, behold, unto thy Sustainer all must return. (8) Hast thou seen him who dissuadeth (9) A votary when he turns to his devotions? (10) What is your opinion if he were upon guidance, (11) Or had enjoined piety, (it would have been better)? (12) Seest thou if he denies (Truth) and turns away? (13) Knoweth he not that Allah beholdeth? (14) Nay, if he desist not, We shall most surely drag him down upon his forehead (15) a lying, sinful forelock. (16) So let him call on his concourse! (17) We too would summon the braves of the army. (18) No, not at all. Never obey him. But prostrate yourself and become nigh (to your Lord). ۩ (19)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
