وَإِذْ قَالَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ رَبِّ أَرِنِي كَيْفَ تُحْيِي الْمَوْتَى قَالَ أَوَلَمْ تُؤْمِنْ قَالَ بَلَى وَلَكِنْ لِيَطْمَئِنَّ قَلْبِي قَالَ فَخُذْ أَرْبَعَة ً مِنَ الطَّيْرِ فَصُرْهُنَّ إِلَيْكَ ثُمَّ اجْعَلْ عَلَى كُلِّ جَبَل ٍ مِنْهُنَّ جُزْءا ً ثُمَّ ادْعُهُنَّ يَأْتِينَكَ سَعْيا ً وَاعْلَمْ أَنَّ اللَّهَ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيم ٌ

And Abraham said: "My Lord, show me how you resurrect the dead." He said: "Do you not already believe?" He said: "I do, but it is so my heart can be relieved." He said: "Choose four birds, then cut them, then place parts of the birds on each mountain, then call them to you; they will come racing towards you. And know that God is Noble, Wise."

وَرَسُولا ً إِلَى بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ أَنِّي قَدْ جِئْتُكُمْ بِآيَة ٍ مِنْ رَبِّكُمْ أَنِّي أَخْلُقُ لَكُمْ مِنَ الطِّينِ كَهَيْئَةِ الطَّيْرِ فَأَنفُخُ فِيه ِِ فَيَكُونُ طَيْرا ً بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ وَأُبْرِئُ الأَكْمَه ََ وَالأَبْرَصَ وَأُحْيِ الْمَوْتَى بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ وَأُنَبِّئُكُمْ بِمَا تَأْكُلُونَ وَمَا تَدَّخِرُونَ فِي بُيُوتِكُمْ إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَآيَة ً لَكُمْ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ مُؤْمِنينَ

And as a messenger to the Children of Israel: "I have come to you with a sign from your Lord; that I create for you from clay the form of a bird, then I blow into it and it becomes a bird with the permission of God, and I heal the blind and the lepers, and give life to the dead with the permission of God, and I prophesize for you what you shall eat and what to store in your homes. In that is a sign for you if you are believers."

 

5:110
إِذْ قَالَ اللَّهُ يَاعِيسَى ابْنَ مَرْيَمَ اذْكُرْ نِعْمَتِي عَلَيْكَ وَعَلى وَالِدَتِكَ إِذْ أَيَّدتُّكَ بِرُوحِ الْقُدُسِ تُكَلِّمُ النَّاسَ فِي الْمَهْدِ وَكَهْلا ً وَإِذْ عَلَّمْتُكَ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَالتَّوْرَاةَ وَالإِنجِيلَ وَإِذْ تَخْلُقُ مِنَ الطِّينِ كَهَيْئَةِ الطَّيْرِ بِإِذْنِي فَتَنفُخُ فِيهَا فَتَكُونُ طَيْرا ً بِإِذْنِي وَتُبْرِئُ الأَكْمَه ََ وَالأَبْرَصَ بِإِذْنِي وَإِذْ تُخْرِجُ الْمَوْتَى بِإِذْنِي وَإِذْ كَفَفْتُ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ عَنْكَ إِذْ جِئْتَهُمْ بِالْبَيِّنَاتِ فَقَالَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِنْهُمْ إِنْ هَذَا إِلاَّ سِحْر ٌ مُبِين ٌ

God said: "O Jesus, son of Mary, recall My blessings upon you and your mother, that I supported you with the Holy Spirit; you spoke to the people in the cradle and middle-age; and I taught you the Book and the wisdom, and the Torah, and the Gospel; and you would create from clay the shape of a bird, then blow into it and it becomes a bird with My permission; and you would heal the blind and the leaper with My permission; and you would bring out the dead with My permission. And I have restrained the Children of Israel from you, that you came to them with proofs; but those who rejected among them said: 'This is clearly magic!'"

 

12:36
وَدَخَلَ مَعَهُ السِّجْنَ فَتَيَانِ قَالَ أَحَدُهُمَا إِنِّي أَرَانِي أَعْصِرُ خَمْرا ً وَقَالَ الآخَرُ إِنِّي أَرَانِي أَحْمِلُ فَوْقَ رَأْسِي خُبْزا ً تَأْكُلُ الطَّيْرُ مِنْهُ نَبِّئْنَا بِتَأْوِيلِهِ~ِ إِنَّا نَرَاكَ مِنَ الْمُحْسِنِينَ

And with him in the prison entered two young men. One of them said: "I dreamt that I was pressing wine," and the other said: "I dreamt that I was carrying bread on top of my head, and that the birds were eating from it." "Tell us its interpretation, for we see that you are of the good doers."

 

12:41
يَا صَاحِبَيِ السِّجْنِ أَمَّا أَحَدُكُمَا فَيَسْقِي رَبَّه ُُ خَمْرا ً وَأَمَّا الآخَرُ فَيُصْلَبُ فَتَأْكُلُ الطَّيْرُ مِنْ رَأْسِه ِِ قُضِيَ الأَمْرُ الَّذِي فِيه ِِ تَسْتَفْتِيَانِ

"My fellow inmates, one of you will be serving wine for his lord, while the other will be crucified so that the birds will eat from his head. The matter which you have sought is now concluded."

 

16:79
أَلَمْ يَرَوْا إِلَى الطَّيْرِ مُسَخَّرَات ٍ فِي جَوِّ السَّمَاءِ مَا يُمْسِكُهُنَّ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَآيَات ٍ لِقَوْم ٍ يُؤْمِنُونَ
'AlamYaraw 'Ilá Aţ-Ţayri Musakhkharātin Fī Jawwi As-Samā'i Mā Yumsikuhunna 'Illā Allāhu 'Inna Fī Dhālika La'āyātin Liqawmin Yu'uminūna 

 

Have they not looked at the birds held in the atmosphere of the sky? No one holds them up except God. In that are signs for a people who believe.

 

21:79
فَفَهَّمْنَاهَا سُلَيْمَانَ وَكُلاّ ً آتَيْنَا حُكْما ً وَعِلْما ً وَسَخَّرْنَا مَعَ دَاوُودَ الْجِبَالَ يُسَبِّحْنَ وَ الطَّيْرَ وَكُنَّا فَاعِلِينَ

So We gave Solomon the correct understanding, and both of them We have given wisdom and knowledge. And We commissioned the mountains with David to praise, and the birds. This is what We did.

 

22:31
حُنَفَاءَ لِلَّهِ غَيْرَ مُشْرِكِينَ بِه ِِ وَمَنْ يُشْرِكْ بِاللَّهِ فَكَأَنَّمَا خَرَّ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ فَتَخْطَفُهُ الطَّيْرُ أَوْ تَهْوِي بِهِ الرِّيحُ فِي مَكَان ٍ سَحِيق ٍ

Monotheists to God, not setting up anything with Him. And whoever sets up partners with God, then it is as if he has fallen from the sky and the birds snatch him or the wind takes him to a place far off.

 

24:41
أَلَمْ تَرَى أَنَّ اللَّهَ يُسَبِّحُ لَه ُُ مَنْ فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَ الطَّيْرُ صَافَّات ٍ كُلّ ٌ قَدْ عَلِمَ صَلاَتَه ُُ وَتَسْبِيحَه ُُ وَاللَّهُ عَلِيم ٌ بِمَا يَفْعَلُونَ

Do you not see that everything in the heavens and the earth glorifies God? Even the birds in formation, each knows its contact prayer and its glorification. And God is fully aware of everything they do.

 

27:16
وَوَرِثَ سُلَيْمَانُ دَاوُودَ وَقَالَ يَاأَيُّهَا النَّاسُ عُلِّمْنَا مَنطِقَ الطَّيْرِ وَأُوتِينَا مِنْ كُلِّ شَيْء ٍ إِنَّ هَذَا لَهُوَ الْفَضْلُ الْمُبِينُ
Wa Waritha Sulaymānu Dāwūda Wa Qāla Yā 'Ayyuhā An-Nāsu `Ullimnā Manţiqa Aţ-Ţayri Wa 'Ūtīnā Min Kulli Shay'in 'Inna Hādhā Lahuwa Al-FaĐlu Al-Mubīnu 

 

And Solomon inherited from David, and he said: "O people, we have been taught how to understand the speech of the creatures that fly, and we have been given from everything. This is indeed an evident grace."

 

27:17
وَحُشِرَ لِسُلَيْمَانَ جُنُودُه ُُ مِنَ الْجِنِّ وَالإِنْسِ وَ الطَّيْرِ فَهُمْ يُوزَعُونَ
Wa Ĥushira Lisulaymāna Junūduhu Mina Al-Jinni Wa Al-'Insi Wa Aţ-Ţayri Fahum Yūza`ūna 

 

And the soldiers of Solomon were gathered, comprising of mankind and Jinn and birds, for they were to be spread out.

 

27:20
وَتَفَقَّدَ الطَّيْرَ فَقَالَ مَا لِي لاَ أَرَى الْهُدْهُدَ أَمْ كَانَ مِنَ الْغَائِبِينَ
Wa Tafaqqada Aţ-Ţayra Faqāla Mā Lī Lā 'Ará Al-Hud/huda 'Am Kāna Mina Al-Ghā'ibīna 

 

And he inspected the birds, then said: "Why do I not see the hoopoe, or is he among those absent?"

 

34:10
وَلَقَدْ آتَيْنَا دَاوُودَ مِنَّا فَضْلا ً يَاجِبَالُ أَوِّبِي مَعَه ُُ وَ الطَّيْرَ وَأَلَنَّا لَهُ الْحَدِيدَ
Wa Laqad 'Ātaynā Dāwūda Minnā FaĐlāan Yā Jibālu 'Awwibī Ma`ahu Wa Aţ-Ţayra Wa 'Alannā Lahu Al-Ĥadīda 

 

And We granted David blessings from Us: O mountains, glorify with him, and the birds. And We softened the iron for him.

 

38:19
وَ الطَّيْرَ مَحْشُورَة ً كُلّ ٌ لَهُ~ُ أَوَّاب ٌ
Wa Aţ-Ţayra Maĥshūratan Kullun Lahu 'Awwābun 

 

And the birds were gathered; all were obedient to him.

 

56:21
وَلَحْمِ طَيْر ٍ مِمَّا يَشْتَهُونَ
Wa Laĥmi Ţayrin Mimmā Yashtahūna 

 

And meat of birds that they desire.

 

67:19
أَوَلَمْ يَرَوْا إِلَى الطَّيْرِ فَوْقَهُمْ صَافَّات ٍ وَيَقْبِضْنَ مَا يُمْسِكُهُنَّ إِلاَّ الرَّحْمَنُ إِنَّه ُُ بِكُلِّ شَيْء ٍ بَصِير ٌ
'AwalamYaraw 'Ilá Aţ-Ţayri Fawqahum Şāffātin Wa YaqbiĐna Mā Yumsikuhunna 'Illā Ar-Raĥmānu 'Innahu Bikulli Shay'in Başīrun 

 

Have they not looked to the birds lined-up together above them, and they contract? It is the Almighty who holds them. He is Seer of all things.

 

105:3
وَأَرْسَلَ عَلَيْهِمْ طَيْراً أَبَابِيلَ
Wa 'Arsala `Alayhim Ţayrāan 'Abābīla 

 

And He sent upon them formations of birds in flight.

6:38
وَمَا مِنْ دَابَّة ٍ فِي الأَرْضِ وَلاَ طَائِر ٍ يَطِيرُ بِجَنَاحَيْهِ إِلاَّ أُمَمٌ أَمْثَالُكُمْ مَا فَرَّطْنَا فِي الْكِتَابِ مِنْ شَيْء ٍ ثُمَّ إِلَى رَبِّهِمْ يُحْشَرُونَ

And there is not a creature on the earth, nor a bird that flies with its wings, except they belong to nations like you belong. We did not leave anything out of the record; then to their Lord they will be gathered.
