“16. An-Nahl – Decoding The Quran – Ahmed Hulusi”
“Audhu billahi minash shaytanirrajeem”
Bismi Llaahi l-raḥmaani l-raḥeem
By the one who is denoted by the name Allah (who created my being with His Names in accord with the meaning of the letter ‘B’), the Rahman, the Rahim.
1. The command of Allah has come (for you to see); there is no need to rush! He is Subhan and Aliy, high and above what they associate with Him.
2. He reveals the knowledge of the reality to whom He wills among His servants with His forces (and says), “Warn with the truth that there is no deity/god, only Me! So beware of Me!”
3. He created the heavens and the earth in Truth (with His Names)… He is high above what they associate with Him!
4. He created man from a single sperm… And behold, he has become defiant!
5. He also created livestock… In them are warmth (energy and clothing) and other benefits for you… And from them you eat.
6. And there is beauty for you in them when you bring them in (from pasture) in the evening and in the mornings when you let them out (to pasture).
7. They carry your loads and take you to many places that you cannot reach yourselves without difficulty! Indeed, your Rabb is the Ra’uf, the Rahim.
8. And He (created) horses, mules and donkeys for you to ride on and enjoy… And He creates so much more that you do not know.
9. The path to the target leads to Allah! But there are some who deviate from it… Had Allah willed He could have guided all of you collectively to the reality!
10. HU sent down water for you from the sky… From it comes drink and from it comes foliage in which you pasture (animals).
11. With it He causes to grow for you the crops, olives, dates and grapes of all types. Indeed, there is a sign in these for a people who think!
12. And He subjects for you the night, the day, the Sun (source of energy) and the Moon (which stimulates your hormones and senses with its gravitational force)… And the stars are subjected by and in service to His command (the stars are also a manifestation of the meanings of the Names comprising their essence)… Indeed, there is a sign in this for a people who can use their intellect!
13. And on the earth, (he subjects for you) his creation of various colors… Indeed, from this sign there are lessons to be taken for those who contemplate!
14. And it is HU who subjects the sea to your service, so that you may eat from it and extract ornaments from it to wear… You will see ships plowing through it… so that you may seek of His bounty and be of the thankful ones who evaluate.
15. He formed firmly set mountains upon the earth so that you are not shaken (organs of set functions) and rivers (people who act as a source of knowledge) by which you may find your way and reach the reality and roads (comprehensions suitable to your demeanor).
