Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
Ha Mim. (1) By the Clear Book; (2) That We made it a distinctly lucid Qur'an that you may understand. (3) And Verily, it (this Quran) is in the Mother of the Book (i.e. Al-Lauh Al-Mahfuz), before Us, indeed Exalted, full of Wisdom. (4) Shall We then (warn you not and) take away the Reminder (this Quran) from you, because you are a people Musrifun (5) How many Messengers did We send to the ancient people? (6) And never came there a Prophet to them but they used to mock at him. (7) so We destroyed those who were mightier than these; such was the example of the earlier peoples. (8) And if you should ask them, "Who has created the heavens and the earth?" they would surely say, "They were created by the Exalted in Might, the Knowing." (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) He Who sent down water from the sky in a determined measure, and thereby We revived a dead land: likewise will you be raised up (from the earth) -- (11) He who created pairs of everything, and fashioned for you boats and beasts on which you ride, (12) so that you may sit firmly on their backs. Then once you have mounted them, remember your Lord's favour and say, "Glory be to Him who has subjected these creatures to us; we would never on our own have subdued them. (13) And to our Lord we shall surely return." (14) And they appoint for Him from His bondmen a part! Verily man is an ingrate manifest. (15)
