The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
19 verses, revealed in Mecca. First revelation of the Quran before The Pen (Al-Qalam)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Recite thou in the name of thy Lord Who hath created (1) He created man from a clot. (2) Read! Your Lord is the Most Bountiful One (3) Who taught by the pen, (4) Taught man that which he knew not. (5) Nay, but verily man is rebellious (6) because he thinks that he is independent. (7) Indeed, to your Lord is the return. (8) What thinkest thou? He who forbids (9) a worshiper when he prays. (10) Have you seen if he was upon guidance (11) Or enjoins Righteousness? (12) Have you thought that if he denies and turns away, (13) Does he, then, not know that God sees [all]? (14) And yet indeed if he does not desist We shall drag him by the forelock, (15) A lying, sinning forelock. (16) So let him summon his helpmates; (17) We will call the guards of hell. (18) No indeed! Do not obey him, but prostrate yourself and come closer to God. ۩ (19)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
