The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
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: In the name of thy Lord Who createth, (1) Created man from a clinging substance. (2) Recite, and your Lord is the most Generous - (3) Who teacheth by the pen, (4) He taught the human being what he did not know. (5) By no means: Verily man exorbitateth. (6) As he bethinkest himself selfsufficient. (7) Surely to your Lord is your return. (8) Hast thou seen him who dissuadeth (9) A votary when he turns to his devotions? (10) Do you think he is rightly guided, (11) Or enjoineth piety? (12) Seest thou if he denies (Truth) and turns away? (13) Does he not know that Allah sees? (14) Nay, if he desist not, We shall most surely drag him down upon his forehead (15) A lying, sinful forelock! (16) So let him now call his gang! (17) and We too will call the stern and angry keepers 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.
