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 Merciful, the Most Merciful
(Muhammad), read in the name of your Lord who created (all things). (1) created man out of a germ-cell (2) Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous, (3) Who teacheth by the pen, (4) taught man what he did not know! (5) Nay! Verily, man does transgress all bounds (in disbelief and evil deed, etc.). (6) because he thinks himself self-sufficient: (7) Surely to your Lord is the return. (8) Have you seen the one who prohibits (9) A slave when he prayeth? (10) Have you thought, if he had been on guidance (11) or enjoins true piety? (12) What is your opinion if he denies and turns away, how wretched will be his state! (13) Did he not know that God sees? (14) By no means! If he desist not We shall seize and deal him by the forelock (15) the lying, rebellious forehead! (16) So let him now call his gang! (17) and We too will call the stern and angry keepers of hell. (18) No, indeed; do not obey him! Prostrate and come nearer (to Allah). ۩ (19)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
