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 Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
Read: In the name of thy Lord Who createth, (1) created man from a clot [of blood]. (2) Read! Your Lord is the Most Bountiful One (3) Who hath taught mankind by the pen (4) The One Who taught man all what he did not know. (5) Nay, but verily man is rebellious (6) For he thinks he is sufficient in himself. (7) Verily unto thy Lord is the return. (8) Have you seen the one who forbids (9) a servant when he prays -- (10) What will happen if the praying person is rightly guided (11) Or enjoins piety? (12) Seest thou if he denies (Truth) and turns away? (13) Does he not know that Allah does see? (14) No indeed; surely, if he gives not over, We shall seize him by the forelock, (15) A lying, sinful forehead. (16) So, let him call upon his way! (17) [the while] We shall summon the forces of heavenly chastisement! (18) Nay! (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him))! Do not obey him (Abu Jahl). Fall prostrate and draw near to Allah! ۩ (19)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
