Then We draw it back to Us, withdrawing it little by little.
It is He who made the night a covering for you; and made sleep for rest, the day for rising.
It is He who sends the winds with auspicious news in advance of His benevolence; and We send pure water down from the sky
To quicken a region that was dead, and to give it as drink to animals We have created and to men in plenty.
