The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
19 verses, revealed in Mecca. First revelation of the Quran before The Pen (Al-Qalam)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
READ in the name of thy Sustainer, who has created (1) created the human from a (blood) clot. (2) Recite: And thy Lord is the Most Generous, (3) Who taught (to write) with the pen (4) taught man what he did not know! (5) Yet man behaves arrogantly, (6) Because he sees himself self-sufficient. (7) truly, all will return to your Lord. (8) Did you see him who forbids (9) a servant (of Allah) when he prays? (10) What will happen if the praying person is rightly guided (11) Or had enjoined piety, (it would have been better)? (12) Bethinkest thou, if he belieth and turneth away? (13) Did he not know that God sees? (14) Indeed, if he does not desist, We will seize him by the forelock, (15) A lying, sinful forelock! (16) Then let him summon his council, (17) We too shall summon the guards of Hell. (18) Yes indeed; do not listen to him and prostrate, and become close to Us. (Command of Prostration # 14) ۩ (19)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
