Quran: The Beginning

These were the very first verses of the Quran to be revealed on a night in Ramadhan over 1400 years ago to the Messenger of Allah ﷺ

“Recite in the name of your Lord who created. Created man from a clinging substance. Recite, and your Lord is the most Generous”

[Chapter 96: Al-‘Alaq (The Clot) verses 1-3]
