Iqraa (Read)

These are the first 5 verses of the glorious Qur’an that were revealed to Muhammad (صلى الله عليه و سلم) while he was in the cave Hira.

~~~

(In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful)

1. Proclaim! (or Read!) in the name of thy Lord and Cherisher, Who created–

2. Created man, out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood:

3. Proclaim! And thy Lord is Most Bountiful,–

4. He Who taught (the use of) the Pen,__

5. Taught man that which he knew not.

You can read Surah Iqraa in its entirety here.

For a detailed commentary on these verses and indeed the entire surah or any other surah of the Qur’an, I recommend Ma’ariful Qur’an.
