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 sends down this spirit (of prophecy) by His command through His angels on any of His servants whom He wills, (directing them): "Warn people that there is no deity but Me; so hold Me alone in fear." (2) He created the heavens and the earth with reason. Too glorious and high is He for what they associate with Him. (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) and there is beauty in them for you, when you bring them home to rest and when you drive them forth abroad to pasture; (6) They carry your loads to a land which you could not otherwise reach except by painful toil to oneself. Your Lord is the Clement, the 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) It is for Allah to show the way. Some swerve from it, but had He willed, He would have guided all of you. (9)
