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) By the Book that makes things clear, (2) We have made it an Arabic Koran in order that you understand. (3) And verily it is, in the Original Book before Us, indeed exalted. (4) [O YOU who deny the truth!] Should We, perchance, withdraw this reminder from you altogether, seeing that you are people bent on wasting your own selves? (5) How many a Prophet did We send to the ancients, (6) And there came not to them a prophet but they mocked at him. (7) so We destroyed those who were mightier than these; such was the example of the earlier peoples. (8) If you ask them, "Who has created the heavens and the earth?", they will surely answer, "The Almighty, the All Knowing One has created them." (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 (it is He), who sends down water from the sky in its measure thereby We revive the land that was dead, as such you shall be brought forth. (11) And, (it is He) who has created all the pairs and appointed for you ships and the cattle on which you ride, (12) In order that you may mount firmly on their backs, and then may remember the Favour of your Lord when you mount thereon, and say: "Glory to Him who has subjected this to us, and we could never have it (by our efforts)." (13) To our Lord we shall all return". (14) And they assign to Him a part of His servants; man, to be sure, is clearly ungrateful. (15)
