The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
19 verses, revealed in Mecca. First revelation of the Quran before The Pen (Al-Qalam)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
Recite: In the Name of thy Lord who created, (1) He created man from a clot. (2) Recite: And thy Lord is the Most Generous, (3) who taught by the pen, (4) Teacheth man that which he knew not. (5) Indeed, surely the human is very insolent (6) Because he sees himself free from want. (7) Indeed, to your Lord is the return. (8) Have you seen the one who prohibits (9) A bondman when he offers the prayer? (10) Have you seen if he was upon guidance (11) Or enjoins Righteousness? (12) Bethinkest thou, if he belieth and turneth 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) A forelock that lies, is sinful. (16) Then let him call his associates; (17) We also shall call the infernal guards. (18) Nay, pay thou no heed to him, but prostrate thyself [before God] and draw close [unto Him]! ۩ (19)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
