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) CONSIDER this divine writ, clear in itself and clearly showing the truth: (2) We have made it a Qur'an in Arabic, that ye may be able to understand (and learn wisdom). (3) And verily it is, in the Original Book before Us, indeed exalted. (4) Should We have withdrawn the Reminder from you as you are a people who exceed the bounds? (5) How many a Prophet We sent among the ancients, (6) Yet never did a Prophet come to them but they mocked him. (7) so We destroyed those who were mightier than these; such was the example of the earlier peoples. (8) And if thou (Muhammad) ask them: Who created the heavens and the earth, they will surely answer: The Mighty, the Knower created them; (9) He Who made the earth a resting-place for you, and made in it ways for you that you may go aright; (10) And Who sent down water from the sky with a proper measure, so We revived a dead city with it; this is how you will be taken out. (11) and who created the pairs, all of them, and appointed for you ships and cattle such as you ride, (12) so that perhaps when you ride them, you will recall the bounties of your Lord and when you establish your control over it you would say, "Glory belongs to Him who has made it subservient to us when we would not have been able to do so ourselves. (13) And verily, to Our Lord we indeed are to return! (14) Yet they have made some of His servants a part of Him. Indeed man is most evidently thankless. (15)
