2:259
أَوْ كَالَّذِي مَرَّ عَلَى قَرْيَة ٍ وَهِيَ خَاوِيَةٌ عَلَى عُرُوشِهَا قَالَ أَنَّى يُحْيِي هَذِهِ اللَّهُ بَعْدَ مَوْتِهَا فَأَمَاتَهُ اللَّهُ مِائَةَ عَام ٍ ثُمَّ بَعَثَه ُُ قَالَ كَمْ لَبِثْتَ قَالَ لَبِثْتُ يَوْماً أَوْ بَعْضَ يَوْم ٍ قَالَ بَلْ لَبِثْتَ مِائَةَ عَام ٍ فَانظُرْ إِلَى طَعَامِكَ وَشَرَابِكَ لَمْ يَتَسَنَّهْ وَانظُرْ إِلَى حِمَارِكَ وَلِنَجْعَلَكَ آيَة ً لِلنَّاسِ وَانظُرْ إِلَى الْعِظَامِ كَيْفَ نُنشِزُهَا ثُمَّ نَكْسُوهَا لَحْما ً فَلَمَّا تَبَيَّنَ لَه ُُ قَالَ أَعْلَمُ أَنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْء ٍ قَدِير ٌ
'Aw Kālladhī Marra `Alá Qaryatin Wa Hiya Khāwiyatun `Alá `Urūshihā Qāla 'Anná Yuĥyī Hadhihi Allāhu Ba`da Mawtihā Fa'amātahu Allāhu Miā'ata `Āmin Thumma Ba`athahu Qāla Kam Labithta Qāla Labithtu Yawmāan 'Aw Ba`Đa Yawmin Qāla Bal Labithta Miā'ata `Āmin Fānžur 'Ilá Ţa`āmika Wa Sharābika Lam Yatasannah Wa Anžur 'Ilá Ĥimārika Wa Linaj`alaka 'Āyatan Lilnnāsi Wa Anžur 'Ilá Al-`Ižāmi Kayfa Nunshizuhā Thumma Naksūhā Laĥmāan Falammā Tabayyana Lahu Qāla 'A`lamu 'Anna Allāha `Alá Kulli Shay'in Qadīrun 


Or the one who passed through a town which had become ruins. He said: "How can God possibly revive this after it had died?" So God put him to death for one hundred years, then He resurrected him. He said: "How long have you stayed here?" He said: "I have stayed here a day or part of a day." He said: "No, you have stayed here for one hundred years! Look at your food and drink, they have not changed, but look at your donkey! And We will make you a sign for the people; and look at the bones how We expand them, then We cover them with flesh." So when it was clear to him what happened, he said: "I now know that God is capable of all things!"

16:8
وَالْخَيْلَ وَالْبِغَالَ وَالْحَمِيرَ لِتَرْكَبُوهَا وَزِينَة ً وَيَخْلُقُ مَا لاَ تَعْلَمُونَ
Wa Al-Khayla Wa Al-Bighāla Wa

Al-Ĥamīra Litarkabūhā Wa Zīnatan Wa Yakhluqu Mā Lā Ta`lamūna 

And the horses and the mules and the donkeys, that you may ride them and as an adornment; and He creates what you do not know.

31:19
وَاقْصِدْ فِي مَشْيِكَ وَاغْضُضْ مِنْ صَوْتِكَ إِنَّ أَنكَرَ الأَصْوَاتِ لَصَوْتُ الْحَمِيرِ
Wāqşid Fī Mashyika Wa AghĐuĐ Min Şawtika 'Inna 'Ankara Al-'Aşwāti Laşawtu Al-Ĥamīri 


And be humble in how you walk and lower your voice. For the harshest of all voices is the voice of the donkeys.

62:5
مَثَلُ الَّذِينَ حُمِّلُوا التَّوْرَاةَ ثُمَّ لَمْ يَحْمِلُوهَا كَمَثَلِ الْحِمَارِ يَحْمِلُ أَسْفَارا ً بِئْسَ مَثَلُ الْقَوْمِ الَّذِينَ كَذَّبُوا بِآيَاتِ اللَّهِ وَاللَّهُ لاَ يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الظَّالِمِينَ
Mathalu Al-Ladhīna Ĥummilū At-Tawrāata Thumma Lam Yaĥmilūhā Kamathali Al-Ĥimāri Yaĥmilu 'Asfārāan Bi'sa Mathalu Al-Qawmi Al-Ladhīna Kadhdhabū Bi'āyāti Allāhi Wa Allāhu Lā Yahdī Al-Qawma Až-žālimīna 


The example of those who were given the Torah, but then failed to uphold it, is like the donkey that is carrying a cargo of books. Miserable indeed is the example of the people who denied the revelations of God. And God does not guide the wicked people.

74:50
كَأَنَّهُمْ حُمُر ٌ مُسْتَنْفِرَة ٌ
Ka'annahum Ĥumurun Mustanfirahun 


They are like fleeing zebras.
