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
۞ God's command comes; so seek not to hasten it. Glory be to Him! High be He exalted above that they associate with Him! (1) He doth send down His angels with inspiration of His Command, to such of His servants as He pleaseth, (saying): "Warn (Man) that there is no god but I: so do your duty unto Me." (2) He created the heavens and the earth for a true purpose. He is exalted above anything they associate with Him. (3) Man He created from a drop of semen; and still he becomes an open contender. (4) He has created cattle for you: from them you derive food and clothing and numerous other benefits; (5) and you find beauty in them when you drive them home in the evenings and when you take them out to pasture in the mornings. (6) And they carry your loads to a land that you could not reach except with great trouble to yourselves. Truly, your Lord is full of Kindness, Most Merciful. (7) He has created horses, mules and donkeys, so that you may ride them, and also so that they may be put on show, and He creates other things beyond your knowledge. (8) Some paths lead away from God but one must follow the path that leads to God. Had God wanted, He could have guided (all to the right path). (9)
