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
۞ Allah's judgement has (all but) come; do not, then, call for its speedy advent. Holy is He, and far above their associating others with Him in His Divinity. (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 has created the heavens and the earth for just ends: Far is He above having the partners they ascribe to Him! (3) He created man from a drop of fluid, yet he is an open quarreller! (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 bear your loads unto a land that you never would reach, excepting with great distress. Surely your Lord is All-clement, All-compassionate. (7) He created horses, mules, and donkeys for you to ride and as a means of beauty. He has also created things that you do not know. (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)
