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
Recite thou in the name of thy Lord Who hath created (1) He created man from a clot. (2) Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous, (3) Who taught by the pen - (4) Taught man that which he knew not. (5) Indeed, surely the human is very insolent (6) Because he sees himself self-sufficient. (7) for, behold, unto thy Sustainer all must return. (8) Have you seen him who restrains (9) A slave when he prayeth? (10) Bethinkest thou, if he is himself guided, (11) or bade to godfearing -- (12) What thinkest thou? If he cries lies, and turns away - (13) Did he not realise that Allah is watching? (14) No indeed; if he does not desist, We shall drag him by the forelock; (15) a lying, sinful forelock. (16) Then let him call his associates; (17) We too shall summon the guards of Hell. (18) Nay, heed him not: But bow down in adoration, and bring thyself the closer (to Allah)! ۩ (19)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
