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. (1) I swear by the Book that makes things clear: (2) We have made it an Arabic reading text so that perhaps you may understand. (3) It is inscribed in the original Book (of Books) with Us, sublime, dispenser of (all) laws. (4) Shall We then take away from you the admonition because ye are a people extravagant? (5) And how many a prophet have We sent among the ancients. (6) No Prophet came to them whom they did not mock. (7) so We destroyed men stronger in valour than they, and the example of the ancients passed away. (8) And if thou (Muhammad) ask them: Who created the heavens and the earth, they will surely answer: The Mighty, the Knower 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 He it is who sends down, again and again, waters from the sky in due measure: and [as] We raise therewith dead land to life, even thus will you be brought forth [from the dead]. (11) He Who created these pairs, all of them, and provided you ships and cattle on which you ride, (12) That ye may mount upon their backs, and may remember your Lord's favour when ye mount thereon, and may say: Glorified be He Who hath subdued these unto us, and we were not capable (of subduing them); (13) Hence, verily, it is unto Him that we must always turn." (14) But they have attributed to Him from His servants a portion. Indeed, man is clearly ungrateful. (15)
