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
Recite in the name of your Lord who created - (1) created man from a clot [of blood]. (2) Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous, (3) who has taught [man] the use of the pen (4) Taught man what he did not know. (5) Nay, verily, man becomes grossly overweening (6) Because he sees himself self-sufficient. (7) Verily unto thy Lord is the return. (8) Have you seen the one who forbids (9) A slave (Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) when he prays? (10) Have you considered if he were on the right way, (11) or if he commands others to maintain piety!? (12) Have you considered if he gives the lie to the truth and turns (his) back? (13) Did he not realise that Allah is watching? (14) Let him beware! If he does not desist, We will drag him by the forelock -- (15) a lying, sinful forelock. (16) So let him now call his gang! (17) We shall call on the guards of Hell. (18) No indeed! Do not obey him, but prostrate yourself and come closer to God. ۩ (19)
