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 command of Allah is arriving soon, therefore do not seek to hasten it; Purity and Supremacy are to Him, above all the partners (they ascribe). (1) He causes the angels to descend with this divine inspiration, [bestowed] at His behest upon whomever He wills of His servants: "Warn [all human beings] that there is no deity save Me: be, therefore, conscious of 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 created mankind from a sperm drop, yet he is a clear adversary. (4) He has created cattle for you: from them you derive food and clothing and numerous other benefits; (5) And wherein is beauty for you, when you bring them home in the evening, and as you lead them forth to pasture in the morning. (6) They carry your burdens to lands so distant you could not have reached without much hardship. Indeed your Lord is compassionate and kind. (7) And He created horses and mules and asses for you to ride, and also for your adornment. And He creates many things (for you) that you do not even know about. (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)
