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 Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
(Muhammad), read in the name of your Lord who created (all things). (1) Created man from a clot. (2) Read, and your Lord only is the Most Beneficent, (3) who, by the pen, taught the human being: (4) Hath taught man that which he knew not. (5) Nay, surely man transgresses; (6) As he bethinkest himself selfsufficient. (7) Surely to your Lord is the return. (8) Have you seen one who prevents (9) A votary when he turns to his devotions? (10) Have you seen if he was upon guidance (11) or enjoins true piety? (12) What do you think? Have you seen if he belies and turns away, (13) Does he not know that Allah does see? (14) Indeed, if he does not desist, We will seize him by the forelock, (15) The lying, sinful forelock - (16) Then let him summon his council, (17) [the while] We shall summon the forces of heavenly chastisement! (18) Nay! (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him))! Do not obey him (Abu Jahl). Fall prostrate and draw near to Allah! ۩ (19)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
