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 Most Merciful
(Muhammad), read in the name of your Lord who created (all things). (1) He created man from a clot. (2) Recite! Your Lord is the most Honorable One, (3) Who taught (to write) with the pen (4) He taught the human being what he did not know. (5) Indeed, surely the human is very insolent (6) because he thinks himself self-sufficient: (7) However, (all things) will return to your Lord. (8) Have you seen him who forbids (9) A slave when he prayeth? (10) What thinkest thou? If he were upon guidance (11) Or enjoins piety? (12) Bethinkest thou, if he belieth and turneth away? (13) Did he not know that God sees? (14) Let him beware! If he desist not, We will drag him by the forelock,- (15) A lying, sinful forelock! (16) Let him call on his associates for help (17) We shall call on the guards of Hell. (18) No, indeed; do not obey him! Prostrate and come nearer (to Allah). ۩ (19)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
