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 Merciful, the Compassionate
Recite thou in the name of thy Lord Who hath created (1) created the human from a (blood) clot. (2) Read - for thy Sustainer is the Most Bountiful One (3) Who taught by the pen, (4) taught Man that he knew not. (5) Nay! man is most surely inordinate, (6) because he thinks that he is independent. (7) Indeed, to your Lord is the return. (8) Bethinkest thou him who forbiddeth, (9) a worshipper from praying? (10) Hast thou considered whether he is on the right way, (11) and enjoins piety? (12) Bethinkest thou, if he belieth and turneth away? (13) Does he not know that Allah sees? (14) Nay, but if he cease not We will seize him by the forelock - (15) by the lying forelock steeped in sin. (16) and then let him summon [to his aid] the counsels of his own [spurious] wisdom, (17) We, will call the Zabania (the harsh angels of Hell). (18) No indeed; do thou not obey him, and bow thyself, and draw nigh. ۩ (19)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
