The Bee (Al-nahl)
128 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Cave (Al-Kahf) before Noah (Noah)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
۞ 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 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 created the heavens and the earth with reason. Too glorious and high is He for what they associate with Him. (3) He created man from a small seed and lo! he is an open contender. (4) And He creates cattle: you derive warmth from them, and [various other] uses; and from them you obtain food; (5) And in them is your elegance, when you bring them home at evening, and when you leave them 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 [He created] the horses, mules and donkeys for you to ride and [as] adornment. And He creates that which you do not know. (8) It is for Allah to show the way. Some swerve from it, but had He willed, He would have guided all of you. (9)
