Famous quotes containing the word gardens:

    Have We not made the earth as a cradle
    and the mountains as pegs?
    And We created you in pairs,
    and We appointed your sleep for a rest;
    and We appointed night for a garment,
    and We appointed day for a livelihood.
    And We have built above you seven strong ones,
    and We appointed a blazing lamp
    and have sent down out of the rain-clouds water cascading
    that We may bring forth thereby grain and plants,
    and gardens luxuriant.
    Qur’an, “The Tiding” 78:6-16, ed. Arthur J. Arberry (1955)

    Thou didst create the night, but I made the lamp.
    Thou didst create clay, but I made the cup.
    Thou didst create the deserts, mountains and forests,
    I produced the orchards, gardens and groves.
    It is I who made the glass out of stone,
    And it is I who turn a poison into an antidote.
    Muhammad, Sir Iqbal (1873–1938)

    Have We not made the earth as a cradle and the mountains as pegs? And We created you in pairs, and We appointed your sleep for a rest; and We appointed night for a garment, and We appointed day for a livelihood. And We have built above you seven strong ones, and We appointed a blazing lamp and have sent down out of the rain-clouds water cascading that We may bring forth thereby grain and plants, and gardens luxuriant.
