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) CONSIDER this divine writ, clear in itself and clearly showing the truth: (2) Verily We! We have made it an Arabic Qur'an that haply ye may reflect. (3) Truly, it is inscribed in the Original Book, in Our keeping; it is sublime and full of wisdom. (4) Shall We turn away the Remembrance from you because you are a sinful nation? (5) Many a prophet had We sent to the earlier communities, (6) but whenever a prophet came to them, they mocked him, (7) Then We destroyed men stronger (in power) than these, and the example of the ancients has passed away (before them). (8) Yet if you were to ask them: “Who created the heavens and the earth?” they will certainly say: “The All-Mighty, the All-Knowing has created them.” (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) 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 pairs of everything, and fashioned for you boats and beasts on which you ride, (12) so that you can sit upon their backs and then remember the Favors of your Lord and say: 'Exaltations to Him who has subjected these to us otherwise, we ourselves were not capable of it, (13) “And indeed we have to return to our Lord.” (14) And they assign to Him a part of His servants; man, to be sure, is clearly ungrateful.
