Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
HaMeem. (1) By the Clear Book; (2) That We made it a distinctly lucid Qur'an that you may understand. (3) And verily it is, in the Original Book before Us, indeed exalted. (4) [O YOU who deny the truth!] Should We, perchance, withdraw this reminder from you altogether, seeing that you are people bent on wasting your own selves? (5) And how many a prophet We sent among the former peoples, (6) No Prophet came to them whom they did not mock. (7) So We destroyed (them)- stronger in power than these;- and (thus) has passed on the Parable of the peoples of old. (8) If thou askest them, 'Who created the heavens and earth?' they will say, 'The All-mighty, the All-knowing 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) It is He who sends water down from the sky in due measure, We revive dead land with it and likewise you will be resurrected from the grave, (11) He Who created these pairs, all of them, and provided you ships and cattle on which you ride, (12) That ye mount firmly on the backs thereof, and then may remember the favour of your Lord when ye mount thereon, and may say: hallowed be He Who hath subjected this unto us, and we for it were not fit. (13) And verily unto our Lord we are to return. (14) AND YET, they attribute to Him offspring from among some of the beings created by Him! Verily, most obviously bereft of all gratitude is man! (15)
