The Favors of Allah

In the name of Allah the Compassionate, the Merciful.

Allah’s commandment has come, so do not seek to hurry it on. Glory be to Him and Exalted be He above the shirk (associating other gods with Allah) that they practice![1]
He sends down His angels with inspiration of His Command to whom He pleases of His servants, saying: "Warn the people that there is no one else worthy of worship except Me, therefore fear Me."[2] He has created the heavens and the earth to manifest the Truth; Exalted be He above the shirk that they practice.[3] He created man from a drop of semen, yet he is an open contender.[4] He created cattle, which provide you clothing, food, and other benefits.[5] 

How pleasant they look to you when you bring them home in the evening and drive them to pasture in the morning.[6] They carry your heavy loads to far-off towns that you could not otherwise reach without painful toil; indeed your Lord is Kind and Merciful.[7] 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.[8] 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.[9] It is He Who sends down water from the sky, which provides drinking water for you and brings forth fodder to pasture your cattle.[10] 

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.[11] He has subjected to your service the night and the day, the sun and the moon: and likewise the stars also serve you by His command: surely there are signs in this for people who use their common sense.[12] In the Earth He has created things of different colors: surely there is a sign in this for those who want to learn a lesson.[13] It is He Who has subjected the sea to your service, that you may eat fresh meat therefrom and that you may bring out of it ornaments to wear; and you see that ships plough their course through it. He has done all this so that you may seek His bounty and so that you may pay thanks to Him.[14] He has set mountains on the earth - lest it should move away with you. He also made rivers and roads so that you may find your way;[15] 

and likewise made landmarks and the stars for your guidance.[16] Is then, He, Who has created all this, like one who cannot create? Why don’t you understand?[17] If you want to count the favors of Allah, you will never be able to number them; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful,[18] and Allah knows what you conceal and what you reveal.[19] Those whom they invoke besides Allah have created nothing, but are themselves created.[20]

They are dead, not living; they do not even know when they will be raised to life again.[21] Your God is One God; as for those who do not believe in the hereafter, they have faithless hearts and are puffed up with arrogance.[22] Allah surely knows what they conceal and what they reveal; certainly He does not love the arrogant.[23] When they are asked: "What is it, that your Lord has revealed?" They say: "Fictitious stories of the ancients!"[24] Let them bear their own burden in full and that of those whom they have misled in their ignorance. Alas! Evil is the responsibility they are taking.[25]

Those before them also plotted against the Truth, but Allah shook their edifice through its foundation, and its roof caved in on them; and the torment came at them from where they did not even suspect.[26] Then on the Day of Judgment He will humiliate them and say: "Where are those deities you associated with Me concerning whom you used to dispute with the true believers?" Those who have been give knowledge will say: "Today there will be shame and sorrow for the unbelievers,"[27] - those whom the angels cause to die while they were still engaged in doing injustice to their own souls. At the time of death they offer submission, saying: "We were not doing anything wrong." The angels will reply: "O Yea! How dare you deny! Certainly Allah is aware of what you were doing.[28] Now go ahead and enter the gates of Hell, there you will abide forever." In fact, very awful will be the abode of the arrogant.[29] On the other hand when the righteous people are asked: " What is it that your Lord has revealed?" They say: "That which is the best." Good is the reward for such righteous people in this world and the home of the hereafter will be even better. How splendid will be the home for the righteous[30]

Meanings of the holy Quran
Chapter: AN-NAHL - BEES
Guidelines
"Good deeds are not equal to the evil ones. Repel other's evil deeds with your good deeds. You will see that he with whom you had enmity, will become your close friend.
But none will attain this quality except those who patiently endure and none will attain this quality except those who are truly fortunate."
