(2:164) Surely, in the creation of heavens and earth, and alternation of night and day, and the ships that sail in the sea for the benefit of people, and what God has sent down of water from the sky therewith He brings the earth back to life after it had died, and disperses on it different creatures (Arab. دَابَّةٍ, dābbatin), and the movement of the winds and the clouds that have been designated between the earth and the sky are signs for a people that reason.

(45:4) In your creation, and creatures (Arab. دَابَّةٍ, dābbatin) that He disperses, are signs for people who are certain.
