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. Mim. (1) I swear 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) We have sent many a prophet to earlier peoples (6) And there came not to them a prophet but they mocked at him. (7) We therefore destroyed the people who were more forceful than these, and the example of the earlier ones has already gone by. (8) If thou wert to question them, 'Who created the heavens and the earth?' They would be sure to reply, 'they were created by (Him), the Exalted in Power, Full of Knowledge';- (9) It is He who has made the earth for you as a cradle and has made roads therein so that you will perhaps seek guidance. (10) And Who sends down water (rain) from the sky in due measure. Then We revive a dead land therewith, and even so you will be brought forth (from the dead), (11) He Who created all the pairs, and appointed for you ships and cattle whereupon ye ride. (12) So that when you sit astride of them and think of the bounties of your Lord, you may say: "All glory to Him who subjugated these for us. We were incapable of doing so. (13) Surely we have to go back to our Lord." (14) And they assign to Him a part of His servants; man, to be sure, is clearly ungrateful. (15)
