Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
Ha Mim (1) I swear by the illustrious Book. (2) Surely We have made it an Arabic Quran that you may understand. (3) And verily, it is in the Mother of the Book, in Our Presence, high (in dignity), full of wisdom. (4) [O YOU who deny the truth!] Should We, perchance, withdraw this reminder from you altogether, seeing that you are people bent on wasting your own selves? (5) And how many a prophet We sent among the ancients. (6) but whenever a prophet came to them, they mocked him, (7) We utterly destroyed them although they were greater in might than these. The examples of ancient peoples have gone before. (8) Yet if you were to ask them: “Who created the heavens and the earth?” they will certainly say: “The All-Mighty, the All-Knowing has created them.” (9) Who hath made for you the earth a bed, and hath made for you paths therein that haply ye may be directed. (10) It is He who sends water down from the sky in due measure, We revive dead land with it and likewise you will be resurrected from the grave, (11) It is He who has created everything in pairs and the ships and cattle for you to ride, (12) in order that you might gain mastery over them, and that, whenever you have mastered them, you might remember your Sustainer's blessings and say: "Limitless in His glory is He who has made [all] this subservient to our use - since [but for Him,] we would not have been able to attain to it. (13) Hence, verily, it is unto Him that we must always turn." (14) Yet they assign to Him some of His own (created) worshipers! Clearly, the human is unthankful. (15)
