Verse 16:1

اَتٰۤى اَمۡرُ اللّٰهِ فَلَا تَسۡتَعۡجِلُوۡهُ​ ؕ سُبۡحٰنَهٗ وَتَعٰلٰى عَمَّا يُشۡرِكُوۡنَ‏

God's command has come. Stop and think over these messages and hasten not in comprehending the Qur'an. Glorified, Exalted He is, High above what people associate with Him.

Verse 16:2

يُنَزِّلُ الۡمَلٰۤٮِٕكَةَ بِالرُّوۡحِ مِنۡ اَمۡرِهٖ عَلٰى مَنۡ يَّشَآءُ مِنۡ عِبَادِهٖۤ اَنۡ اَنۡذِرُوۡۤا اَنَّهٗ لَاۤ اِلٰهَ اِلَّاۤ اَنَا فَاتَّقُوۡنِ‏

He sends down His angels with revelation of His command, to such of His servants as He wills - Saying, 'Proclaim that there is no one worthy of obedience but Me, so be mindful of My laws.'

Verse 16:3

خَلَقَ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالۡاَرۡضَ بِالۡحَـقِّ​ؕ تَعٰلٰى عَمَّا يُشۡرِكُوۡنَ‏ 

He has created the heavens and the earth with purpose. He is High, Exalted above all that they associate with Him.

Verse 16:4

خَلَقَ الۡاِنۡسَانَ مِنۡ نُّـطۡفَةٍ فَاِذَا هُوَ خَصِيۡمٌ مُّبِيۡنٌ‏

He created the human being out of male and female gametes. They should be humble before their Creator's messages instead of being contentious.

Verse 16:5

وَالۡاَنۡعَامَ خَلَقَهَا​ ۚ لَـكُمۡ فِيۡهَا دِفۡ ٴٌ وَّمَنَافِعُ وَمِنۡهَا تَاۡكُلُوۡنَ‏

And cattle He has created for you. From them you derive warmth, and numerous benefits, and from them you obtain food.

Verse 16:6

وَلَكُمۡ فِيۡهَا جَمَالٌ حِيۡنَ تُرِيۡحُوۡنَ وَحِيۡنَ تَسۡرَحُوۡنَ‏

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.

Verse 16:7

وَتَحۡمِلُ اَثۡقَالَـكُمۡ اِلٰى بَلَدٍ لَّمۡ تَكُوۡنُوۡا بٰلِغِيۡهِ اِلَّا بِشِقِّ الۡاَنۡفُسِ​ؕ اِنَّ رَبَّكُمۡ لَرَءُوۡفٌ رَّحِيۡمٌۙ‏

They carry your loads to places you could not reach without much hardship. Surely, your Lord is Compassionate, Merciful.

Verse 16:8

وَّالۡخَـيۡلَ وَالۡبِغَالَ وَالۡحَمِيۡرَ لِتَرۡكَبُوۡهَا وَزِيۡنَةً​ ؕ وَيَخۡلُقُ مَا لَا تَعۡلَمُوۡنَ‏

And He created horses, mules, and donkeys for you to ride and for joyful decor. And He will yet create things of which (today) you have no knowledge.

Verse 16:9

وَعَلَى اللّٰهِ قَصۡدُ السَّبِيۡلِ وَمِنۡهَا جَآٮِٕرٌ​ؕ وَلَوۡ شَآءَ لَهَدٰٮكُمۡ اَجۡمَعِيۡنَ‏

(You see that these animals serve you and follow their instinct). God alone can show the right path, but there are ways that turn aside towards wrong. If God willed, He could have guided all of you. [He could have created you driven by instinct without the ability to make choices]

Verse 16:10

هُوَ الَّذِىۡۤ اَنۡزَلَ مِنَ السَّمَآءِ مَآءً​ لَّـكُمۡ مِّنۡهُ شَرَابٌ وَّمِنۡهُ شَجَرٌ فِيۡهِ تُسِيۡمُوۡنَ‏

He is the One Who sends down water from the sky for you to drink from it, and out of it grow trees for you to graze your cattle.
