(Word by Word) rendition of Surah The Bee(an-Nahl)
16:1  Will come (the) command of Allah so (do) not (be) impatient for it. Glorified is He and Exalted (is) He above what they associate.
16:2  He sends down the Angels with the inspiration of His Command, upon whom He wills of His slaves, that "Warn that [He] (there is) no god except Me, so fear Me."
16:3  He created the heavens and the earth, in truth. Exalted is He above what they associate.
16:4  He created the human kind from a minute quantity of then behold, he (is) an opponent clear.
16:5  And the cattle, He created them for you, in them (is) warmth and benefits and from them you eat.
16:6  And for you in them (is) beauty when you bring them in and when you take them out.
16:7  And they carry your loads to a land not you could reach it except with great trouble (to) yourselves. Indeed, your Lord surely is Most Kind, Most Merciful.
16:8  And horses and mules and donkeys for you to ride them and (as) adornment. And He creates what not you know.
16:9  And upon Allah (is) the direction (of) the way, and among them (are) crooked. And if He willed, surely He would have guided you all.
16:10  He (is) the One Who sends down from the sky water for you of it (is) drink, and from it (grows) vegetation in which you pasture your cattle.
16:11  He causes to grow for you with it, the crops and the olives and the date-palms and the grapes and of every kind (of) fruits. Indeed, in that surely (is) a sign for a people who reflect.
16:12  And He has subjected for you the night and the day, and the sun and the moon, and the stars (are) subjected by His command. Indeed, in that surely (are) signs for a people who use reason.
16:13  And whatever He multiplied for you in the earth (of) varying colors. Indeed, in that surely (is) a sign for a people who remember.
16:14  And He (is) the One Who subjected the sea for you to eat from it meat fresh and that you bring forth from it, ornaments (that) you wear them. And you see the ships ploughing through it, and that you may seek of His Bounty, and that you may (be) grateful.
16:15  And He has cast in the earth firm mountains, lest it should shake with you, and rivers and roads so that you may be guided,
16:16  And landmarks. And by the stars they guide themselves.
16:17  Then is He Who creates like one who (does) not create? Then will you not remember?
16:18  And if you should count the Favors of Allah, not you could enumerate Indeed, Allah (is) Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
16:19  And Allah knows what you conceal and what you reveal.
16:20  And those whom they invoke besides Allah not they create anything, but (are) themselves created.
16:21  (They are) dead not alive. And not they perceive when they will be resurrected.
16:22  Your god (is) God One. But those who (do) not believe in the Hereafter, their hearts refuse, and they (are) arrogant.
16:23  No doubt that Allah knows what they conceal and what they reveal. Indeed, He (does) not love the arrogant ones.
16:24  And when it is said to them, "What has your Lord sent down? They say, "Tales (of) the ancient."
16:25  That they may bear their own burdens (in) full on (the) Day (of) the Resurrection, and of the burdens (of) those whom they misled [them] without knowledge. Unquestionably, evil (is) what they will bear.
16:26  Verily, plotted those who (were) before them, but Allah came (at) their building from the foundations, so fell upon them the roof from above them, and came to them the punishment from where they (did) not perceive.
16:27  Then (on) the Day (of) the Resurrection, He will disgrace them and say, "Where (are) My partners those (for) whom you used (to) oppose [in them]?" Will say those who were given the knowledge, "Indeed, the disgrace, this Day and evil (are) upon the disbelievers"
16:28  Those whom - take them in death the Angels (while) wronging themselves, then they would offer the submission, "Not we were doing any evil." Nay, indeed, Allah (is) All-Knower of what you used (to) do.
16:29  So enter (the) gates (of) Hell (to) abide forever in it. Surely, wretched (is the) abode (of) the arrogant.
16:30  And it will be said to those who fear Allah, "What has your Lord sent down?" They will say, "Good." For those who do good in this world (is) a good, and the home of the Hereafter (is) better. And surely excellent (is) the home (of) the righteous.
16:31  Gardens (of) Eden - which they will enter, flows from underneath them the rivers. For them therein (will be) whatever they wish. Thus Allah rewards the righteous,
16:32  Those whom take them in death the Angels (when they are) pure saying, "Peace (be) upon you. Enter Paradise for what you used (to) do."
16:33  Do they wait except that (should) come to them the Angels or (should) come (the) Command (of) your Lord? Thus did those who (were) before them. And not wronged them Allah but they were themselves wronging.
16:34  Then struck them (the) evil (results) (of) what they did, and surrounded them what they used (to) [of it] mock.
16:35  And said those who associate partners (with Allah), "If Allah (had) willed not we (would) have worshipped other than Him any thing, we and not our forefathers and not we (would) have forbidden other than Him anything." Thus did those who (were) before them. Then is (there) on the messengers except the conveyance clear?
16:36  And certainly, We sent into every nation a Messenger, that, "Worship Allah, and avoid the false deities." Then among them (were some) whom Allah guided, and among them (were) some was justified on them the straying. So travel in the earth and see how was the end (of) the deniers.
16:37  If you desire [for] their guidance, then indeed, Allah (will) not guide whom He lets go astray, and not (are) for them any helpers.
16:38  And they swear by Allah strongest (of) their oaths, Allah will not resurrect (one) who dies. Nay, (it is) a promise upon Him (in) truth, but most (of) the mankind (do) not know.
16:39  That He will make clear to them that they differ wherein, and that may know those who disbelieved that they were liars.
16:40  Only Our Word to a thing when We intend it (is) that We say to it, "Be" and it is.
16:41  And those who emigrated in (the way) (of) Allah after [what] they were wronged, surely We will give them position in the world good, but surely the reward (of) the Hereafter (is) greater, if they know.
16:42  Those who (are) patient and on their Lord they put their trust.
16:43  And not We sent before you except men, We revealed to them, so ask (the) people (of) the Reminder if you (do) not know.
16:44  With the clear proofs and the Books. And We sent down to you the Remembrance, that you may make clear to the mankind, what has been sent down to them and that they may reflect.
16:45  Do then feel secure those who plotted the evil deeds that Allah will cave with them the earth or will come to them the punishment from where not they perceive?
16:46  Or that He may seize them in their going to and fro then not they will be able to escape?
16:47  Or that He may seize them with a gradual wasting But indeed, your Lord (is) surely Full of Kindness, Most Merciful.
16:48  Have not they seen [towards] what Allah has created from a thing? Incline their shadows to the right and to the left, prostrating to Allah while they (are) humble?
16:49  And to Allah prostrate whatever (is) in the heavens and whatever (is) in the earth of moving creatures and the Angels, and they (are) not arrogant.
16:50  They fear their Lord above them, and they do what they are commanded.
16:51  And Allah has said, "(Do) not take [two] gods two, only He (is) God One, so Me Alone you fear [Me]."
16:52  And to Him (belongs) whatever (is) in the heavens and the earth and to Him (is due) the worship constantly. Then is it other (than) Allah you fear?
16:53  And whatever you have of favor (is) from Allah. Then when touches you the adversity then to Him you cry for help.
16:54  Then when He removes the adversity from you, behold! A group of you with their Lord associate others,
16:55  So as to deny that which We have given them. Then enjoy yourselves, soon you will know.
16:56  And they assign to what not they know - a portion, of what We have provided them. By Allah surely you will be asked about what you used (to) invent.
16:57  And they assign to Allah daughters. Glory be to Him! And for them (is) what they desire.
16:58  And when is given good news (to) one of them of a female, turns his face dark and he suppresses grief.
16:59  He hides himself from the people (because) of the evil of what he has been given good news about. Should he keep it in humiliation or bury it in the dust? Unquestionably, evil (is) what they decide.
16:60  For those who (do) not believe in the Hereafter, (is) a similitude (of) the evil, and for Allah (is) the similitude the Highest. And He (is) the All-Mighty, All-Wise.
16:61  And if Allah were to seize the mankind for their wrongdoing not He (would) have left upon it any moving creature, but He defers them for a term appointed. Then when comes their terms not they (will) remain behind an hour and not they can advance (it).
16:62  And they assign to Allah what they dislike and assert their tongues the lie that for them (is) the best. No doubt that for them (is) the Fire and that they (will) be abandoned.
16:63  By Allah, certainly We have sent to nations before you but made fair-seeming to them the Shaitaan their deeds. So he (is) their ally today, and for them (is) a punishment painful.
16:64  And not We revealed to you the Book except that you make clear to them that which they differed in it, and (as) a guidance and mercy for a people who believe.
16:65  And Allah sends down from the sky water, then gives life by it (to) the earth after its death. Indeed, in that (is) surely a Sign for a people who listen.
16:66  And indeed, for you in the cattle (is) a lesson. We give you to drink from what (is) in their bellies, from between bowels and blood, milk pure, palatable to the drinkers.
16:67  And from fruits the date-palm, and the grapes, you take from it intoxicant and a provision good. Indeed, in that (is) surely a Sign for a people who use reason.
16:68  And inspired your Lord to the bee, [that] "Take among the mountains, houses and among the trees, and in what they construct.
16:69  Then eat from all the fruits and follow (the) ways (of) your Lord made smooth." Comes forth from their bellies a drink (of) varying colors, in it (is) a healing for the mankind. Indeed, in that (is) surely a Sign for a people who reflect.
16:70  And Allah created you, then will cause you to die. And among you (is one) who is sent back to the worst (of) the age, so that not he will know after knowledge a thing. Indeed, Allah (is) All-Knowing, All-Powerful.
16:71  And Allah has favored some of you over others in [the] provision. But not those who were favored would hand over their provision to whom possess their right hands, so (that) they (are) in it equal. Then is it the Favor of Allah they reject?
16:72  And Allah (has) made for you from yourselves spouses, and has made for you from your spouses sons and grandsons and has provided for you from the good things. Then in falsehood do they believe, and the Favor of Allah they disbelieve?
16:73  And they worship other than Allah which not possesses for them any provision from the heavens and the earth [anything], and not they are able.
16:74  So (do) not put forth for Allah the similitude. Indeed, Allah knows and you (do) not know.
16:75  Allah sets forth the example (of) a slave (who is) owned, not he has power on anything and (one) whom We provided him from a provision good, so he spends from it, secretly and publicly. Can they be equal? All praise (is) for Allah! Nay, but most of them (do) not know.
16:76  And Allah sets forth an example (of) two men, one of them (is) dumb, not he has power on anything, while he (is) a burden on his master. Wherever he directs him not he comes with any good. Is equal he and (the one) who commands [of] justice, and he (is) on a path straight?
16:77  And to Allah (belongs) (the) unseen (of) the heavens and the earth. And not (is the) matter (of) the Hour but as a twinkling (of) the eye or it (is) nearer. Indeed, Allah on every thing (is) All-Powerful.
16:78  And Allah brought you forth from the wombs (of) your mothers, not knowing anything, and made for you the hearing and the sight and the hearts so that you may give thanks.
16:79  Do not they see towards the birds controlled in the midst (of) the sky? None holds them up except Allah. Indeed, in that (are) Signs for a people who believe.
16:80  And Allah (has) made for you [from] your homes a resting place, and made for you from the hides (of) the cattle tents, which you find light (on) the day (of) your travel and the day (of) your encampment; and from their wool and their fur and their hair (is) furnishing and a provision for a time.
16:81  And Allah (has) made for you from what He created, shades and (has) made for you from the mountains, shelters and (has) made for you garments to protect you (from) the heat and garments to protect you from your (mutual) violence. Thus He completes His Favor upon you so that you may submit.
16:82  Then, if they turn away then only upon you (is) the conveyance the clear.
16:83  They recognize (the) Favor (of) Allah; then they deny it. And most of them (are) the disbelievers.
16:84  And the Day We will resurrect from every nation a witness, then not will be permitted to those who disbelieved and not they will be asked to make amends.
16:85  And when (will) see those who wronged the punishment, then not it will be lightened for them and not they will be given respite.
16:86  And when (will) see those who associated partners with Allah their partners. They will say, "Our Lord, these (are) our partners those whom we used to invoke besides You." But they (will) throw back at them (their) word, "Indeed, you (are) surely liars."
16:87  And they (will) offer to Allah (on) that Day the submission, and (is) lost from them what they used (to) invent.
16:88  And those who disbelieved and hindered from (the) way (of) Allah, We will increase them (in) punishment over punishment because they used (to) spread corruption.
16:89  And the Day We will resurrect among every nation a witness over them from themselves. And We (will) bring you (as) a witness over these. And We sent down to you the Book (as) a clarification of every thing and a guidance and mercy and glad tidings for the Muslims.
16:90  Indeed, Allah commands justice and the good, and giving (to) relatives, and forbids [from] the immorality and the bad and the oppression. He admonishes you so that you may take heed.
16:91  And fulfil the covenant (of) Allah when you have taken at, and (do) not break oaths after their confirmation while verily you have made Allah over you a surety. Indeed, Allah knows what you do.
16:92  And (do) not be like her who untwists her spun yarn after strength (into) untwisted strands; you take your oaths (as) a deception between you, because is a community [it] more numerous than (another) community. Only, Allah tests you by it. And He will make clear to you (on) the Day (of) the Resurrection, what you used (to) in it differ.
16:93  And if Allah (had) willed surely He (could) have made you a nation one, but He lets go astray whom He wills and guides whom He wills. And surely you will be questioned about what you used (to) do.
16:94  And (do) not take your oaths (as) a deception between you, lest, should slip a foot after it is firmly planted, and you would the evil for what you hindered from (the) way (of) Allah and for you (is) a punishment great.
16:95  And (do) not exchange the covenant (of) Allah, (for) a price little. Indeed, what (is) with Allah, it (is) better for you if you were (to) know.
16:96  Whatever (is) with you will be exhausted, and whatever (is) with Allah (will) be remaining. And surely We will pay those who (are) patient their reward to (the) best (of) what they used (to) do.
16:97  Whoever does righteous deeds whether male or female while he (is) a believer, then surely We will give him life, a life good, and We will pay them their reward to (the) best of what they used (to) do.
16:98  So when you recite the Quran, seek refuge in Allah from the Shaitaan, the accursed.
16:99  Indeed he, not for him (is) any authority on those who believe and upon their Lord they put their trust.
16:100  Only his authority (is) over those who take him as an ally and those who [they] with Him associate partners.
16:101  And when We substitute a Verse (in) place (of) a Verse, and Allah - (is) most knowing of what He sends down they say, "Only you (are) an inventor." Nay, most of them (do) not know.
16:102  Say, "Has brought it down the Holy Spirit from your Lord in truth, to make firm those who believe and (as) a guidance and glad tidings to the Muslims."
16:103  And certainly We know that they say, "Only teaches him a human being." (The) tongue (of) the one they refer to him (is) foreign while this (is) a language Arabic clear.
16:104  Indeed, those who (do) not believe in the Verses (of) Allah, not Allah will guide them and for them (is) a punishment painful.
16:105  Only they invent the falsehood those who (do) not believe in the Verses (of) Allah, and those - they (are) the liars.
16:106  Whoever disbelieves in Allah after his belief, except (one) who is forced while his heart (is) content with the faith. But (one) who opens to disbelief (his) breast, then upon them (is) a wrath of Allah and for them (is) a punishment great.
16:107  That (is) because they preferred the life (of) the world over the Hereafter and that Allah (does) not guide the people the disbelievers.
16:108  Those (are) the ones - Allah has set a seal over their hearts and their hearing and their sight. And those - they are the heedless.
16:109  No doubt that they in the Hereafter [they] (are) the losers.
16:110  Then indeed, your Lord, to those who emigrated after what they had been put to trials then strove hard and were patient. Indeed, your Lord, after it, surely is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
16:111  (On) the Day (when) will come every soul pleading for itself, and will be paid in full every soul what it did and they (will) not be wronged.
16:112  And Allah sets forth a similitude (of) a town (that) was secure and content, coming to it its provision (in) abundance from every place, but it denied (the) Favors of Allah, so Allah made it taste (the) garb (of) the hunger and the fear for what they used (to) do.
16:113  And certainly came to them a Messenger from among them but they denied him; so seized them the punishment while they (were) wrongdoers.
16:114  So eat of what Allah has provided you - lawful and good. And be grateful (for the) Favor (of) Allah, if [you] Him Alone you worship.
16:115  Only He has forbidden to you the dead animal and the blood and the flesh (of) the swine, and what has been dedicated to other (than) Allah [with it]. But (if) one (is) forced - without (being) disobedient, and not a transgressor - then indeed, Allah (is) Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
16:116  And (do) not say for that which assert your tongues, the lie, "This (is) lawful and this (is) forbidden," so that you invent about Allah the lie. Indeed, those who invent about Allah the lie, they will not succeed.
16:117  An enjoyment little and for them (is) a punishment painful.
16:118  And to those who are Jews We have forbidden what We related to you before. And not We wronged them but they used (to) themselves wrong.
16:119  Then indeed, your Lord, to those who did evil in ignorance, then repented after that, and corrected themselves - indeed, your Lord, after that (is) surely Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
16:120  Indeed, Ibrahim was a nation obedient to Allah upright, and not he was of the polytheists.
16:121  Thankful for His favors. He chose him and guided him to the way straight.
16:122  And We gave him in the world good, and indeed, he in the Hereafter (he) will surely (be) among the righteous.
16:123  Then We revealed to you, that, "You follow (the) religion (of) Ibrahim upright; and not he was of the polytheists."
16:124  Only was appointed the Sabbath for those who differed in it. And indeed, your Lord will surely judge between them (on) the Day (of) the Resurrection in what they used (to) [in it] differ.
16:125  Call to (the) way (of) your Lord with the wisdom and the instruction the good, and discuss with them in that which (is) best. Indeed, your Lord, He (is) most knowing of who has strayed from His way, And He (is) most knowing of the guided ones.
16:126  And if you retaliate, then retaliate with the like of what you were afflicted with [it]. But if you are patient, surely (it) is better for those who are patient.
16:127  And be patient and not (is) your patience but from Allah. And (do) not grieve over them and (do) not be in distress for what they plot.
16:128  Indeed, Allah (is) with those who fear (Him) and those who [they] (are) good-doers.
