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: In the Name of thy Lord who created, (1) created man from a clot of congealed blood. (2) Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous, (3) The One Who taught to write with the pen. (4) Hath taught man that which he knew not. (5) Despite this, the human being still tends to rebel (6) that he sees himself sufficed. (7) Indeed, to your Lord is the return. (8) Seest thou one who forbids- (9) a servant (of Allah) when he prays? (10) Have you considered if he were on the right way, (11) or if he commands others to maintain piety!? (12) Bethinkest thou, if he belieth and turneth away? (13) Does he not realize that God sees him? (14) No indeed; surely, if he gives not over, We shall seize him by the forelock, (15) A lying, sinful forehead. (16) Then, let him call upon his council (of helpers), (17) We will call the guards of hell. (18) No indeed! Do not obey him, but prostrate yourself and come closer to God. ۩ (19)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
