The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
19 verses, revealed in Mecca. First revelation of the Quran before The Pen (Al-Qalam)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Proclaim! (or read!) in the name of thy Lord and Cherisher, Who created- (1) He created man from a clot of blood. (2) Read and your Lord is Most Honorable, (3) Who hath taught mankind by the pen (4) taught man what he did not know. (5) Indeed, surely the human is very insolent (6) whenever he believes himself to be self-sufficient: (7) Surely! Unto your Lord is the return. (8) HAST THOU ever considered him who tries to prevent (9) A slave when he prayeth? (10) What thinkest thou? If he were upon guidance (11) He would enjoin piety, so how good it would be! (12) What thinkest thou? If he cries lies, and turns away - (13) Knows he not that Allah does see (what he does)? (14) Yes certainly, if he does not desist, We will seize him by the forelock. (15) The lying, sinful forelock - (16) So let him summon his helpmates; (17) We will call the guards of hell. (18) Yes indeed; do not listen to him and prostrate, and become close to Us. (Command of Prostration # 14) ۩ (19)
