0015 From The Koran, Sura 55:

The Lord, the Merciful, has taught you this:
created you; and gave you gift of speech;
made order in the world; made plants and trees;
which blessing of the Lord would you deny?

He made the heavens; set balance in all things,
through laws which, followed, keep you close to Him,
and watches over you afresh each day;
which blessing of the Lord would you deny?

The earth, its fruits and grain and scented herbs;
salt water in the sea, yet fresh for you;
the good rewarded and the bad destroyed;
and, though you die, His majesty abides;

compassion, mercy, glory, majesty -
which blessing of the Lord would you deny?
