Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
HA MIM. (1) By the manifest Book (that makes things clear, i.e. this Quran). (2) We have made it an Arabic reading text so that perhaps you may understand. (3) And verily it is, in the Original Book before Us, indeed exalted. (4) So shall We divert the advice away from you, because you are a nation that exceeds the limits? (5) And how many a prophet We sent among the former peoples, (6) Yet never did a Prophet come to them but they mocked him. (7) Then We destroyed men stronger (in power) than these, and the example of the ancients has passed away (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) (Yea, the same that) has made for you the earth (like a carpet) spread out, and has made for you roads (and channels) therein, in order that ye may find guidance (on the way); (10) And He it is who sends down, again and again, waters from the sky in due measure: and [as] We raise therewith dead land to life, even thus will you be brought forth [from the dead]. (11) He Who created all the pairs, and appointed for you ships and cattle whereupon ye 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) To our Lord we shall all return". (14) But they have attributed to Him from His servants a portion. Indeed, man is clearly ungrateful. (15)
