Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
Ha-Meem. (Alphabets of the Arabic language Allah, and to whomever He reveals, know their precise meanings.) (1) By the Book that makes things clear, (2) That We made it a distinctly lucid Qur'an that you may understand. (3) And Lo! in the Source of Decrees, which We possess, it is indeed sublime, decisive. (4) Shall We turn away the Remembrance from you, for that you are a prodigal people? (5) How many Messengers did We send to the ancient people? (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 if you ask them, “Who has created the heavens and the earth?”, they will surely say, “They are created by the Most Honourable, the All Knowing.” (9) Who has made for you the earth like a bed, and has made for you roads therein, in order that you may find your way, (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 all the pairs, and appointed for you ships and cattle whereupon ye ride. (12) so that when you are mounted upon them you may remember the bounty of your Lord, and say: “Glory be to Him Who has subjected this to Us whereas we did not have the strength to subdue it. (13) “And indeed we have to return to our Lord.” (14) Yet they make some of His creatures His offspring! Man is surely most ungrateful. (15)
