Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
Ha-Mim. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Quran, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings]. (1) By this luminous Book. (2) behold, We have caused it to be a discourse in the Arabic tongue, so that you might encompass it with your reason. (3) And Lo! in the Source of Decrees, which We possess, it is indeed sublime, decisive. (4) Should We have withdrawn the Reminder from you as you are a people who exceed the bounds? (5) And how many Prophets We did send among the earlier people! (6) but not a Prophet came to them, without they mocked at him; (7) so We destroyed those who were mightier in courage than they. And the example of the ancients has passed away. (8) Yet, if you ask them who created the heavens and the earth, they will answer: 'The Almighty, the 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 who sends down rain from the sky in measured amounts, and We revive thereby a dead land - thus will you be brought forth - (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 indeed we, to our Lord, will [surely] return." (14) But they have attributed to Him from His servants a portion. Indeed, man is clearly ungrateful. (15)
