Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Ha, Meem. (1) By the Book that makes things clear,- (2) verily We have made it an Arabic Qur'an that you may understand. (3) and behold, it is in the Essence of the Book, with Us; sublime indeed, wise. (4) So shall We divert the advice away from you, because you are a nation that exceeds the limits? (5) How many Messengers did We send to the ancient people? (6) No Prophet came to them whom they did not mock. (7) and so, [in the end,] We destroyed them [even though they were] of greater might than these: and the [very] image of those people of old became a thing of the past. (8) And if you should ask them, Who created the heavens and the earth? they would most certainly say: The Mighty, the Knowing One, has created them; (9) [The one] who has made for you the earth a bed and made for you upon it roads that you might be guided (10) Who sent down water in due measure from the sky, then quickened a region that was dead -- So shall We bring you forth -- (11) He Who created all the pairs, and appointed for you ships and cattle whereupon ye ride. (12) In order that ye may sit firm and square on their backs, and when so seated, ye may celebrate the (kind) favour of your Lord, and say, "Glory to Him Who has subjected these to our (use), for we could never have accomplished this (by ourselves), (13) “And indeed we have to return to our Lord.” (14) The pagans have considered some of His servants as His children. There is no doubt that the human being is simply ungrateful. (15)
