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) created man from a clot of congealed blood. (2) Read, for your Lord is most beneficent, (3) who taught by the Pen, (4) Taught man that which he knew not. (5) And yet, but yet man is rebellious, (6) that he sees himself sufficed. (7) Indeed, to your Lord is the returning. (8) What is your opinion regarding him who forbids (9) A servant when he prays? (10) Have you seen if he was upon guidance (11) and enjoins piety? (12) Have you thought that if he denies and turns away, (13) does he not know that Allah sees? (14) Nay, if he desist not, We shall most surely drag him down upon his forehead (15) A lying, sinful forelock! (16) Then, let him call his assembly, (17) We will call the guards of Hell (to deal with him)! (18) Nay, pay thou no heed to him, but prostrate thyself [before God] and draw close [unto Him]! ۩ (19)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
