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 call to witness the lucent Book, (2) We have made it an Arabic Quran so that you may understand. (3) It (the Quran) exists in the original Book with Us which is certainly Most Exalted, full of wisdom and (beyond linguistic structures). (4) Shall We then take away from you the admonition because ye are a people extravagant? (5) And how many a prophet did We send to people of olden times! (6) And never came there a prophet 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) 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 who appointed the earth to be a cradle for you, and appointed ways for you therein, that haply you may be guided; (10) And He Who sends down water from the cloud according to a measure, then We raise to life thereby a dead country, even thus shall you be brought forth; (11) And Who hath treated the pairs, all of them, and appointed for you from ships and cattle things whereon ye ride. (12) so that when you are mounted upon them you may remember the bounty of your Lord, and say: “Glory be to Him Who has subjected this to Us whereas we did not have the strength to subdue it. (13) And indeed we, to our Lord, will [surely] return." (14) Yet they assign to Him some of His own (created) worshipers! Clearly, the human is unthankful. (15)
