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
Ha, Meem. (1) By the Book that makes things clear,- (2) That We made it a distinctly lucid Qur'an that you may understand. (3) And surely it is in the original of the Book with Us, truly elevated, full of wisdom. (4) Then should We turn the message away, disregarding you, because you are a transgressing people? (5) And how many a prophet did We send to people of olden times! (6) but whenever a prophet came to them, they mocked him, (7) So We destroyed far more powerful (nations) than they. The example of earlier people is there. (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 made this earth for you a cradle and made in it pathways for you that you may find the way to your destination; (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) And Who hath treated the pairs, all of them, and appointed for you from ships and cattle things whereon ye ride. (12) in order that you might gain mastery over them, and that, whenever you have mastered them, you might remember your Sustainer's blessings and say: "Limitless in His glory is He who has made [all] this subservient to our use - since [but for Him,] we would not have been able to attain to it. (13) And to our Lord we shall surely 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)
