The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
19 verses, revealed in Mecca. First revelation of the Quran before The Pen (Al-Qalam)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Read: In the name of thy Lord Who createth, (1) He created man from a clot. (2) Read and your Lord is Most Honorable, (3) Who taught (to write) with the pen (4) Taught man that which he knew not. (5) No indeed; surely Man waxes insolent, (6) that he sees himself sufficed. (7) Verily unto thy Lord is the return. (8) Have you seen him who forbids (9) a worshipper from praying? (10) Hast thou considered whether he is on the right way, (11) or orders piety? (12) What is your opinion if he denies and turns away, how wretched will be his state! (13) Did he not realise that Allah is watching? (14) Nay! if he desist not, We would certainly smite his forehead, (15) a lying, sinful forelock. (16) Then let him call his associates; (17) We also shall call the infernal guards. (18) Nay, heed him not: But bow down in adoration, and bring thyself the closer (to Allah)! ۩ (19)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
