Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
Ha Mim (1) I swear by the illustrious Book. (2) behold, We have caused it to be a discourse in the Arabic tongue, so that you might encompass it with your reason. (3) It is inscribed in the original Book (of Books) with Us, sublime, dispenser of (all) laws. (4) Should We divert this Good Counsel from you because you are a people immersed in extravagance? (5) We have sent many a prophet to earlier peoples (6) But never did a prophet come at whom they did not scoff. (7) Then We destroyed men stronger (in power) than these, and the example of the ancients has passed away (before them). (8) And indeed if you ask them, "Who has created the heavens and the earth?" They will surely say: "The All-Mighty, the All-Knower created them." (9) Who made the earth a resting-place for you, and placed roads for you therein, that haply ye may find your way; (10) And Who sent down water from the sky with a proper measure, so We revived a dead city with it; this is how you will be taken out. (11) It is He who has created everything in pairs and the ships and cattle for you to ride, (12) That ye mount firmly on the backs thereof, and then may remember the favour of your Lord when ye mount thereon, and may say: hallowed be He Who hath subjected this unto us, and we for it were not fit. (13) To our Lord we shall all return". (14) Yet they have made some of His servants a part of Him. Indeed man is most evidently thankless. (15)
