The Bee (Al-nahl)
128 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Cave (Al-Kahf) before Noah (Noah)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
۞ The command of Allah is coming, so be not impatient for it. Exalted is He and high above what they associate with Him. (1) He sendeth down the angels with the Spirit of His command unto whom He will of His bondmen, (saying): Warn mankind that there is no Allah save Me, so keep your duty unto Me. (2) He has created the heavens and the earth in accordance with [an inner] truth; sublimely exalted is He above anything to which men may ascribe a share in His divinity! (3) Man He created from a drop of semen; and still he becomes an open contender. (4) And the grazing livestock He has created for you; in them is warmth and [numerous] benefits, and from them you eat. (5) In them there is beauty for you when you bring them home and when you lead them to pasture. (6) and they bear your loads unto a land that you never would reach, excepting with great distress. Surely your Lord is All-clement, All-compassionate. (7) And horses, and mules, and donkeys so that you may ride them, and for adornment; and He will create what you do not know*. (* All modern means of transport by air, sea, land and even in space evidence this.) (8) To God leads the right path, though some deviate. If He willed He could guide you all to the right way. (9)
