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 Beneficent, the Merciful
Read in the name of your Lord Who created. (1) Created man from a clot. (2) Proclaim! And thy Lord is Most Bountiful,- (3) Who teacheth by the pen, (4) Teacheth man that which he knew not. (5) Nay, but verily man is rebellious (6) for he believes himself to be self-sufficient. (7) Indeed towards your Lord only is the return. (8) Seest thou one who forbids- (9) A votary when he turns to his devotions? (10) Hast thou seen if he relieth on the guidance (of Allah) (11) He would enjoin piety, so how good it would be! (12) Seest thou if he denies (Truth) and turns away? (13) Does he not know that God observes all things? (14) Nay! if he desist not, We would certainly smite his forehead, (15) A lying, sinful forelock! (16) and then let him summon [to his aid] the counsels of his own [spurious] wisdom, (17) We also shall call the infernal guards. (18) (Muhammad), never yield to him! Prostrate yourself and try to come closer to God. ۩ (19)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
