Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
Ha Mim. (1) By the Scripture which maketh plain, (2) behold, We have caused it to be a discourse in the Arabic tongue, so that you might encompass it with your reason. (3) And surely it is in the original of the Book with Us, truly elevated, full of wisdom. (4) What! shall We then turn away the reminder from you altogether because you are an extravagant people? (5) And how many a prophet did We send to people of olden times! (6) but not a Prophet came to them, without they mocked at him; (7) Wherefore We destroyed peoples mightier than these in prowess; and there hath gone forth the example of the ancients. (8) And indeed if you ask them, "Who has created the heavens and the earth?" They will surely say: "The All-Mighty, the All-Knower created them." (9) He it is who has made the earth a cradle for you, and has provided for you ways [of livelihood] thereon, so that you might follow the right path. (10) And Who sendeth down from the heaven water in measure; then We quicken a dead land therewith: even so ye shall be brought forth. (11) and who created the pairs, all of them, and appointed for you ships and cattle such as you ride, (12) That you may settle yourselves upon their backs and then remember the favor of your Lord when you have settled upon them and say. "Exalted is He who has subjected this to us, and we could not have [otherwise] subdued it. (13) Surely we have to go back to our Lord." (14) Yet they have made some of His servants a part of Him. Indeed man is most evidently thankless. (15)
