Surah Ya’sin: 36:71-83

36:71 Are they, then, not aware that it is for them that We have created, among all the things which Our hands have wrought, the domestic animals of which they are [now] masters?

36:72 And that We have subjected them to men’s will, so that some of them they may use for riding and of some they may eat. 

36:73 And may have [yet other] benefits from them, and [milk] to drink? Will they not, then, be grateful?

36:74 But [nay] they take to worshipping deities other than God, [hoping] to be succored [by them, and not knowing that]. 

36:75 They are unable to succor [appear to] be hosts drawn up [for succor].

36:76 However, be not grieved by the sayings of those [who deny the truth], Verily, We know all that they keep secret as well as all that they bring into the open.

36:77 Is Man, then, not aware that it is We who create him out of a [mere] drop of sperm – whereupon, lo! he shows himself endowed with the power to think and to argue?

36:78 And [now] he [argues about Us, and] thinks of Us in terms of comparison, and is oblivious of how he himself was created! [And so] he says, “Who could give life to bones that have crumbled to dust?”

36:79 Say “He who brought them into being in the first instance will give them life [once again], seeing that He has full knowledge of every act of creation. 

36:80 He who produces for you fire out of the green tree, so that, lo! You kindle [your fires] therewith.”

36:81 Is, then, He who has created the heavens and the earth not able to create [anew] the like of those [who have died]? Yeah, indeed – for He alone is the all-knowing Creator. 

36:82 His Being alone is such that when He wills a thing to be, He but says unto it, “Be” – and it is.

36:83 Limitless, then, in His glory is He in whose hand rests the mighty dominion over all things, and unto Him, you all will be brought back!
