The Bee (Al-nahl)
128 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Cave (Al-Kahf) before Noah (Noah)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
۞ The decree of God is at hand, so do not seek to hasten it. Holy is He, and exalted far above what they associate with Him. (1) He sends down the angels with revelations by His command to whoever of His servants He pleases, saying, "Warn mankind that there is no god save Me, so fear Me." (2) He has created the heavens and the earth for a genuine purpose. He is too Exalted to be considered equal to anything else. (3) He hath created man from a drop, and Lo! he is a disputer open. (4) And He creates cattle: you derive warmth from them, and [various other] uses; and from them you obtain food; (5) And ye have a sense of pride and beauty in them as ye drive them home in the evening, and as ye lead them forth to pasture in the morning. (6) and they carry your loads to many a place which you would be unable to reach without much hardship. Surely your Lord is Intensely Loving, Most Merciful. (7) He created horses, mules and donkeys for riding and for splendour. He created other things too which you do not know. (8) And [because He is your Creator,] it rests with God alone to show you the right path: yet there is [many a one] who swerves from it. However, had He so willed, He would have guided you all aright. (9)
