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 thy Lord Who createth, (1) Createth man from a clot. (2) Read, and your Lord only is the Most Beneficent, (3) Who hath taught mankind by the pen (4) The One Who taught man all what he did not know. (5) Nay, but man doth transgress all bounds, (6) that he sees himself sufficed. (7) Verily, to thy Lord is the return (of all). (8) Have you seen the one who forbids (9) A servant when he prays? (10) Seest thou if he is on (the road of) Guidance?- (11) or if he commands others to maintain piety!? (12) Have you seen if he denies and turns away - (13) Is he then unaware that Allah seeth? (14) Nay, but if he cease not We will seize him by the forelock - (15) by the lying forelock steeped in sin. (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)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
