Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
HA MIM. (1) By the clear Book, (2) We have indeed sent it as a Qur’an in the Arabic language, so that you may understand. (3) And Lo! in the Source of Decrees, which We possess, it is indeed sublime, decisive. (4) So shall We divert the advice away from you, because you are a nation that exceeds the limits? (5) Many a prophet had We sent to the earlier communities, (6) no Prophet came to them except that they mocked him, (7) Then We destroyed men mightier than these in prowess; and the example of the men of old hath gone (before them). (8) Yet thus it is [with most people]: if thou ask them, "Who is it that has created the heavens and the earth?" - they will surely answer, "The Almighty, the All-Knowing has created them." (9) Who made the earth a resting-place for you, and placed roads for you therein, that haply ye may find your way; (10) And who sends down rain from the sky in measured amounts, and We revive thereby a dead land - thus will you be brought forth - (11) And He it is who has created all opposites. And He [it is who] has provided for you all those ships and animals whereon you ride, (12) So that when you sit astride of them and think of the bounties of your Lord, you may say: "All glory to Him who subjugated these for us. We were incapable of doing so. (13) And verily, to Our Lord we indeed are to return! (14) Yet they make some of His creatures His offspring! Man is surely most ungrateful. (15)
