Animals and plants

Français | 简体 | 繁體 |


(6:38) Just look at any animal that walks upon the earth and any bird that flies in the air; they too are the communities like you.  We have not left out anything from the Book (in determining the courses of their lives).  They all shall be gathered before the Lord (Rabb).

(6:95) Surely it is Allah Who causes the seed and the fruit-stone to split (and sprout).  He brings forth the living from the dead and the dead from the living.  It is Allah, (Who does all this); then why are you being misled.

(6:99) It is He Who sends down rainwater from the sky and therewith produces vegetation of all kinds: He brings forth green (crops) producing grain piled up (in the ear), palm-trees laden with clusters of dates hanging within reach, gardens of grapes, olives, and pomegranates; though their fruit resembles in kind yet is different in variety.  Look at their fruits as they yield and ripen.  Behold!  In these things there are signs for true believers.

(6:141) It is He Who has created all kinds of plants, trellised and untrellised, the palm trees, the field crops with produce of different kinds, the olives and pomegranates, similar in kind yet different in taste.  Eat of their fruit in their season and give away (their Zakat) on the harvest day.  Do not be spendthrift, surely He does not love the spendthrifts.
(6:142) Of the animals you have, some are for transportation and some for slaughter.  Eat of that which Allah has provided for you and do not follow the footsteps of Shaitan; surely he is your open enemy.


(7:57) He is the One Who sends the winds bearing good news of His blessings, so when they lift up heavy clouds, We drive them along to a dead countryside and make the rain fall upon it and bring forth all kinds of fruits (from the same dead land).  Likewise We will raise the dead to life; this example is given so that you may learn a lesson.
(7:58) The good soil yields rich produce by the permission of Allah and barren soil yields nothing but poor produce.  Thus do We explain Our revelations over and over again for those who pay thanks.


(11:6) There is no moving creature on earth whose sustenance is not provided by Allah.  He knows its living and its resting place, and all that is recorded in a Glorious Book.


(13:3) He is the One Who spread out the earth and placed thereon mountains and rivers, created fruits of every kind in pairs, two and two, and makes the night cover the day.  Certainly in these things there are signs for those who use their common sense.

(13:4) In the earth there are tracts side by side: gardens of grapes, cornfields and palm trees with single and double trunks – they are all watered with the same water, yet We make some of them excel others in taste.  Surely in this, there are signs for people who use their common sense.


(15:20) and We provided therein means of sustenance for you and (many other creatures) to whom you do not provide.
(15:21) There is nothing which is not in Our (inexhaustible) treasure and sent down in appropriate measure.


(16:5) He created cattle, which provide you clothing, food, and other benefits.
(16:6) How pleasant they look to you when you bring them home in the evening and drive them to pasture in the morning.

(16:7) They carry your heavy loads to far-off towns that you could not otherwise reach without painful toil; indeed your Lord (Rabb) is Kind and Merciful.
(16:8) (He has also created) horses, mules, and donkeys for you to ride and put on show, and He has created other things which are beyond your knowledge.
(16:9) It is up to Allah to show the Right Way, when there exist some crooked ways.  If Allah wanted He could have guided you all.
(16:10) It is He Who sends down water from the sky, which provides drinking water for you and brings forth fodder to pasture your cattle.
(16:11) With it He grows for you crops, olives, date-palms, grapes, and every kind of fruit: surely there is a great sign in this for those who think.

(16:48) Do they not see how every object that Allah has created casts its shadow right and left, prostrating itself to Allah in all humility?
(16:49) To Allah prostrate all the creatures of the heavens and the earth, including the angels; and they are not arrogant:
(16:50) they fear their Lord (Rabb) Who is above them, and they do whatever they are commanded to do.

(16:66) Surely there is a lesson for you in cattle.  We give you to drink of what is in their bellies, between bowels and blood – pure milk – pleasant for those who drink it.
(16:67) (Likewise in) the fruits of the date-palm and the grapes, from which you derive intoxicants and wholesome food, certainly there is a sign for those people who use their common sense.
(16:68) Behold!  Your Lord (Rabb) inspired the bees to build their hives in the mountains, in the trees, and in anything which men may build,
(16:69) and feed on every kind of fruit and follow the smooth ways of your Lord (Rabb).  From its belly comes forth a syrup of different colors, which contains a healing for mankind.  Certainly in this there is a sign for those who think.

(16:79) Do they not see the birds, that wing their flight in the air towards the sky?  Who holds them up but Allah?  Surely in this there are signs for the true believers.
(16:80) Allah has made your homes the place for your rest, and animals skins for tents like houses so that you may find them light when you travel and easy to pitch when you stop; while from their wool, fur, and hair (He provides you) household items and articles of convenience for your prescribed term of life.


(18:45) Give them the similitude of the life of this world.  It is like the vegetation of the earth that flourishes with the rain from the sky, but afterwards the same vegetation turns into dry stubble which is blown away by the winds.  Allah is the One Who has power over everything.


(22:63) Do you not see that Allah has sent down rain from the sky and the earth becomes green? Indeed, Allah is Subtle and Acquainted.

(22:73) O people, an example is presented, so listen to it. Indeed, those you invoke besides Allah will never create [as much as] a fly, even if they gathered together for that purpose. And if the fly should steal away from them a [tiny] thing, they could not recover it from him. Weak are the pursuer and pursued.


(23:18) We send down water from the sky according to a due measure, then We cause it to settle in the soil – if We please, We can certainly take it away
(23:19) then with it We cause to grow gardens of palm trees and grapes for you; yielding abundant fruit for you to eat,
(23:20) and also a tree which grows on Mount Sinai which produces oil and relish as a food for those who like to eat it.
(23:21) In cattle, too, there is a lesson for you: from within their bodies We produce (milk) for you to drink, besides this you gain numerous other benefits; some of them you eat,
(23:22) yet on others as well as on ships you ride.


(24:41) Do you not see that Allah is exalted by whomever is within the heavens and the earth and [by] the birds with wings spread [in flight]? Each [of them] has known his [means of] prayer and exalting [Him], and Allah is Knowing of what they do.

(24:45) Allah has created every [living] creature from water. And of them are those that move on their bellies, and of them are those that walk on two legs, and of them are those that walk on four. Allah creates what He wills. Indeed, Allah is over all things competent.


(26:7) Have they not looked at the earth to see how We have caused all kinds of noble pairs to grow in it?


(27:60) Is not He (Allah), Who has created the heavens and the earth, sends down rain from the sky and with it brings forth the beautiful gardens? It is not in your ability to cause the growth of trees (for those gardens). Is there another god besides Allah (who could do that)? No doubt they are a people who have swerved (from justice) in ascribing equals (to Him).
(27:61) (Just think) Who has made the earth a place for your residence, caused in it the rivers to flow, set mountains upon it and placed a barrier between the two seas?  Is there another god besides Allah?  Nay, most of them have no knowledge.

And how many a creature carries not its [own] provision. Allah provides for it and for you. And He is the Hearing, the Knowing.


(31:10) He created the heavens without visible pillars; He set mountains on the earth lest it should shake with you; and scattered through it all kinds of animals.  We send down rain from the sky with which We grow every type of noble species in pairs.
(31:11) This is Allah’s creation; now, show Me what is there that others (gods) besides Him have created? – in fact the wrongdoers are in manifest error.


(35:28) Likewise men, beasts and cattle have their different colors.  In fact, only those among His servants who possess knowledge fear Allah; surely Allah is All-Mighty, All-Forgiving.


(36:33) The dead land may serve as a sign for them; We give it life and produce from it grain for them, which they eat.
(36:34) We also produce from it gardens with date-palms and vines, and We cause sprins to gush froth from it,
(36:35) so that they may enjoy the fruits thereof.  It was not their hands that made all this; should they not then give thanks?
(36:36) Glory be to Allah Who created all things in pairs: the plants of the earth, mankind themselves and other living things which they do not know.


(39:21) Do you not see how Allah sends down water from the sky which penetrates the earth and come out through springs?  With it He brings forth a variety of crops with different colors, then they wither and you see them turning yellow, and then finally He crumbles them (to dust).  Surely, in this (example), there is a lesson for the people of understanding.


(40:79) It is Allah Who has provided you with cattle, that you may use some for riding and some for food;
(40:80) and there are also other advantages in them for you; they take you where you wish to go on their backs as ships carry you by the sea.


(41:47) He Alone has the knowledge of the Hour (of Doom). No fruit comes out of its sheath, nor does a female conceive, nor she gives birth but with His knowledge…


(43:12) The One Who has created all living things in pairs and made for you the ships and cattle on which you ride.
(43:13) so that you may firmly sit on their backs, then as you mount, recall the goodness of your Lord (Rabb) and say: “Glory be to Him Who has subjected these to Our use, otherwise We could not have brought them under our control,
(43:14) and to our Lord (Rabb) we shall all return.”


(45:4) and in your own creation and that of animals which are scattered through (the earth), there are signs for those who are firm in faith.


(50:9) We send down blessed water from the sky with which We bring forth gardens and the harvest grain,
(50:10) and tall palm trees laden with clusters of dates, piled one over another,
(50:11) a sustenance for the servants; thereby giving new life to dead land.  That is how the resurrection will be (of the dead from the earth).


(51:49) We have created everything in pairs, so that you may learn a lesson from it.


(55:6)The shrubs and the trees prostrate in adoration.

(55:10) He laid out the earth for His creatures,
(55:11) with all its fruits and palms having sheathed clusters,
(55:12) and grain with husk and scented herbs.


(80:24) Let man reflect on the food he eats,
(80:25) How We pour down rainwater in abundance
(80:26) and cleave the soil asunder.
(80:27) How We bring forth grain,
(80:28) grapes and nutritious vegetation;
(80:29) olives and dates,
(80:30) lush gardens,
(80:31) fruits and fodders,
(80:32) as a means of sustenance for you and your cattle.


(87:1) Glorify the name of your Lord (Rabb), the Most High,
(87:2) Who has created all things and perfected them;
(87:3) Who has set their destinies and guided them;
(87:4) Who bring forth green pasture,
(87:5) then reduces it to black rubbish.
