Juz 14
It is He who sends down water from the sky. From it you drink and with it trees grow on which you pasture your cattle. (10) and by virtue of which He causes crops and olives and date-palms and grapes and all kinds of fruit to grow for you. Surely in this there is a great Sign for those who reflect. (11) And He has subjected to you the night and the day, the sun and the moon; and the stars are subjected by His Command. Surely, in this are proofs for people who understand. (12) And whatsoever He has created for you on this earth of varying colours [and qualities from vegetation and fruits, etc. (botanical life) and from animal (zoological life)]. Verily! In this is a sign for people who remember. (13) It is He who has subdued the sea that you may eat fresh meat from it, and obtain ornaments to wear. You see the ships plough through it that you may seek of His bounties and, perhaps, be grateful. (14) And He cast on the earth firm mountains, lest it shake with you, and rivers and ways; so haply you will be guided; (15) and He has set other landmarks in the earth. And by the stars too do people find their way. (16) Is He who creates as he who does not create? Will you not remember? (17) Even if you wanted to count up all of God's blessings, you would not be able to. God is All-forgiving and All-merciful. (18) And Allah knows what you conceal and what you do openly. (19) But those whom you invoke, other than Allah do not create anything they are themselves created. (20) They are, [in fact], dead, not alive, and they do not perceive when they will be resurrected. (21)
