The Bee (Al-nahl)
128 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Cave (Al-Kahf) before Noah (Noah)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially 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 the angels with the soul of faith the divine revelations towards those among His bondmen He wills that, “There is no worship except for Me, therefore fear 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 the grazing livestock He has created for you; in them is warmth and [numerous] benefits, and from them you eat. (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 [many] a place which [otherwise] you would be unable to reach without great hardship to yourselves. Verily, your Sustainer is most compassionate, a dispenser of grace! (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 upon Allah is the direction of the [right] way, and among the various paths are those deviating. And if He willed, He could have guided you all. (9)
