The Bee (Al-nahl)
128 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Cave (Al-Kahf) before Noah (Noah)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
۞ Allah's commandment has come, therefore do not desire to hasten it; glory be to Him, and highly exalted be He above what they associate (with Him). (1) He sends down the angels with the inspiration by His commandment on whom He pleases of His servants, saying: Give the warning that there is no god but Me, therefore be careful (of your duty) to 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 creates man out of a [mere] drop of sperm: and lo! this same being shows himself endowed with the power to think and to argue! (4) And He created cattle; in them are warm clothing and uses for you, and you eat from them. (5) And for you in them is [the enjoyment of] beauty when you bring them in [for the evening] and when you send them out [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) And (He made) horses and mules and asses that you might ride upon them and as an ornament; and He creates what you do not know. (8) And upon Allah is the direction of the way, and thereof is some crooked; and had He willed He would have guided you all. (9)
