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 Merciful, the Compassionate
Recite in the name of your Lord who created - (1) Created man from an embryo; (2) Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous, (3) Who teacheth by the pen, (4) Taught man what he did not know. (5) Despite this, the human being still tends to rebel (6) whenever he believes himself to be self-sufficient: (7) Indeed, to your Lord is the return. (8) Hast thou seen him who dissuadeth (9) a worshiper when he prays. (10) Have you seen if he is upon guidance (11) or is concerned with God-consciousness? (12) What do you think? Have you seen if he belies and turns away, (13) Does he not realize that God sees him? (14) By no means! If he desist not We shall seize and deal him by the forelock (15) A lying, sinning forelock. (16) and then let him summon [to his aid] the counsels of his own [spurious] wisdom, (17) We will now call the guards! (18) No indeed; do thou not obey him, and bow thyself, and draw nigh. ۩ (19)
