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 Compassionate, the Merciful
Recite thou in the name of thy Lord Who hath created (1) Has created man from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood). (2) Read! Your Lord is the Most Bountiful One (3) Who hath taught mankind by the pen (4) taught the human what he did not know. (5) Indeed, surely the human is very insolent (6) for he believes himself to be self-sufficient. (7) Indeed, to your Lord is the returning. (8) Seest thou one who forbids- (9) A bondman when he offers the prayer? (10) Have you seen if he was upon guidance (11) Or enjoins piety? (12) Have you thought that if he denies and turns away, (13) Does he not realize that God sees him? (14) No! If he does not desist, We will surely drag him by the forelock - (15) A lying, sinful forehead. (16) Then let him call upon his henchmen! (17) and We too will call the stern and angry keepers of hell. (18) By no means! Obey not thou him. Continue to adore, and continue to draw nigh. ۩ (19)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
