3. He created man.

4. He taught him eloquent speech.

5. The sun and the moon run on their fixed courses (exactly) calculated with measured out stages for each (for reckoning, etc.).

6. And the herbs (or stars) and the trees both prostrate.

 7. And the heaven He has raised high, and He has set up the Balance.

 8. In order that you may not transgress (due) balance.

 9. And observe the weight with equity and do not make the balance deficient.

 10. And the earth He has put for the creatures.

 11. Therein are fruits, date-palms producing sheathed fruit-stalks (enclosing dates).

 12. And also corn, with (its) leaves and stalk for fodder, and sweet-scented plants.

 13. Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny? 
 

I still feel kind of numb. All I can do is thank and Praise Allah. I was giving my 21 month old son a bath. I let all the water out and took the stopper out too. I let him stay in to play in the running water while I took the dirty clothes to the washer and picked out some clean pajama’s for him. He is a big boy and there was no water in the tub, so I really wasn’t that concerned even though I always hurry back and listen closely for his playful sounds. When I returned to the my bedroom (the bathroom is inside of my bedroom), I didn’t hear him so I called his name. No response. I ran in the bathroom and found him sitting in the tub with his head between his legs and water running over his head from the faucet. I didn’t even want to imagine the worse case, and even briefly denied the possibilities. There was no standing water in the tub, the stopper was pulled out! I said his name as I pulled his head up. He let out a cry walhamduillah! He fell back to sleep 🙂 I picked him up and wrapped him in a towel. It was and is still very surreal as he was sleep and the towel reminded me of a shroud and his stillness reminded me of what could have happened. I laid him down in the bed, kept kissing him. Dried him, clothed him, and could not thank Allah enough for giving my son life and preserving it.

 17.  (He is) the Lord of the two easts (places of sunrise during early summer and early winter) and the Lord of the two wests (places of sunset during early summer and early winter).
 
18.  Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny?
 
19.  He has let loosed the two seas (the salt water and the sweet) meeting together.
 
20.  Between them is a barrier which none of them can transgress.
 
21.  Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny?
 
22.  Out of them both come out pearl and coral.
 
23.  Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny?
 
24.  And His are the ships going and coming in the seas, like mountains.
 
25.  Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny?
 
26.  Whatsoever is on it (the earth) will perish.
 
27.  And the Face of your Lord full of Majesty and Honour will abide forever.
 
28.  Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny?
 
29.  Whosoever is in the heavens and on earth begs of Him (its needs from Him). Every day He has a matter to bring forth (such as giving honour to some, disgrace to some, life to some, death to some, etc.)!
 
30.  Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny?
