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
Read (Prophet Muhammad) in the Name of your Lord who created, (1) Createth man from a clot. (2) Recite: and your Lord is Most Generous, (3) Who hath taught mankind by the pen (4) Taught man what he did not know. (5) And yet, but yet man is rebellious, (6) In that he looketh upon himself as self-sufficient. (7) Verily unto thy Lord is the return. (8) Have you (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) seen him (i.e. Abu Jahl) who prevents, (9) A servant when he prays? (10) Did you consider: what if he is on the Right Way, (11) Or had enjoined piety, (it would have been better)? (12) Did you consider: what if he gives the lie (to the Truth) and turns away (from it)? (13) Does he not realize that God sees him? (14) Nay! If he (Abu Jahl) ceases not, We will catch him by the forelock, (15) A forelock that lies, is sinful. (16) Then let him call his associates; (17) We shall 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)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
