The Bee (Al-nahl)
128 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Cave (Al-Kahf) before Noah (Noah)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
۞ Allah's judgement has (all but) come; do not, then, call for its speedy advent. Holy is He, and far above their associating others with Him in His Divinity. (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 created the heavens and the earth with truth. Exalted is He above what they associate (with Him)! (3) He created man from a small seed and lo! he is an open contender. (4) And He created cattle; in them are warm clothing and uses for you, and you eat from them. (5) How beautiful you find them when you bring them home and when you drive them out to graze. (6) And they carry your loads to a land you could not have reached except with difficulty to yourselves. Indeed, your Lord is Kind and Merciful. (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) And Allah's is the direction of the way, and some (roads) go not straight. And had He willed He would have led you all aright. (9)
