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 Beneficent, the Merciful
Read: In the name of thy Lord Who createth, (1) created the human from a (blood) clot. (2) Recite: And thy Lord is the Most Generous, (3) who has taught [man] the use of the pen (4) Taught man what he knew not. (5) No indeed; surely Man waxes insolent, (6) because he thinks that he is independent. (7) Verily unto thy Lord is the return. (8) What do you think? Have you seen he who forbids (9) a servant (of Allah) when he prays? (10) Hast thou seen if he relieth on the guidance (of Allah) (11) Or enjoins piety? (12) Hast thou considered whether he may [not] be giving the lie to the truth and turning his back [upon it]? (13) Does he not know that Allah sees? (14) No indeed; surely, if he gives not over, We shall seize him by the forelock, (15) By the lying, the sinful forelock. (16) Then let him summon his council, (17) We shall call the guards of Hell. (18) Nay! obey him not, and make obeisance and draw nigh (to Allah). ۩ (19)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
