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 Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
Recite in the name of your Lord who created - (1) He created man from a clot. (2) Read: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous, (3) Who taught by the pen, (4) Teacheth man that which he knew not. (5) Despite this, the human being still tends to rebel (6) For he thinks he is sufficient in himself. (7) Indeed, to your Lord is the returning. (8) Seest thou one who forbids- (9) A votary when he turns to his devotions? (10) Bethinkest thou, if he is himself guided, (11) or is concerned with God-consciousness? (12) What thinkest thou? If he cries lies, and turns away - (13) Did he not realise that Allah is watching? (14) Nay, but if he cease not We will seize him by the forelock - (15) the lying, rebellious forehead! (16) So let him call his associates, (17) We will call the guards of Hell (to deal with him)! (18) No! Do not obey him. But prostrate and draw near [to Allah]. ۩ (19)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
