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 Most Merciful
(Muhammad), read in the name of your Lord who created (all things). (1) Created man from a clot. (2) Read - for thy Sustainer is the Most Bountiful One (3) Who teacheth by the pen, (4) taught man what he did not know! (5) Nay, verily, man becomes grossly overweening (6) As he considers himself independent! (7) Verily unto thy Lord is the return. (8) HAST THOU ever considered him who tries to prevent (9) A bondman when he offers the prayer? (10) Have you seen if he is upon guidance (11) or orders piety? (12) Did you consider: what if he gives the lie (to the Truth) and turns away (from it)? (13) Is he then unaware that Allah seeth? (14) Nay, but if he cease not We will seize him by the forelock - (15) The lying, sinful forelock - (16) Then, let him call his assembly, (17) We also shall call the infernal guards. (18) No indeed! Do not obey him, but prostrate yourself and come closer to God. ۩ (19)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
