Virtues of Surah Alaq Benefits (Chapter 96)

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

In The Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful 

(The Clot) Number of Verses: 19

Surah Alaq (Arabic: سورة العلق‎, “The Clot” or “ the clinging thing” ), is the 96th Sura or chapter of the Qur’an. It is composed of 19 ayat (verses or “signs”), and is traditionally believed to have been the first revelation to Our Beloved Prophet sallal laahu alaihi wasallam in Mecca at cave Hira located at the Mountain Jabal al-Nour.

It is traditionally understood that first five ayats (1-5) of Surah Alaq where revealed, however this is not the first fully complete Sura to be revealed and was actually revealed in 3 parts.

It is sometimes also known as Sūrat Iqrā (سورة إقرا, “Read”).The contents of the Surah also confirm this idea. Some have said that the first Surah is Surah Fatihah, or perhaps Surah Muddaththir, but again this is contrary to what is commonly thought.

First, this Sura addresses the Our Beloved Prophet sallal laahu alaihi wasallam and commands him to read or proclaim (the Message).

Then, it refers to the creation of Man out of a mere clot.

Further, it refers to the development of Man, who is taught from the bounty and by the Grace of Allah; the soul in him reaching out to knowledge sublime, and the instrument of it, the sanctified Pen.

Thereafter, it speaks about ungrateful Man, and that despite all the blessings and graciousness that Allah bestows on him, he rebels.

Following this, it points to the painful chastisement of those who cause a hindrance on the road to guidance and righteous deeds.

Then, the Surah ends with a command to prostration, and of drawing closer to Allah.
