Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
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) And the Qur’an is undoubtedly, in the Original Book with Us, surely the exalted, full of wisdom. (4) Should We divert this Good Counsel from you because you are a people immersed in extravagance? (5) How many a Prophet did We send to the ancients, (6) no Prophet came to them except that they mocked him, (7) We destroyed the strongest among them in power. The stories of the ancient people have already been mentioned. (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) (It is) He who made the earth to be a cradle for you and made in it ways for you, in order that you are guided. (10) And He Who sends down water from the cloud according to a measure, then We raise to life thereby a dead country, even thus shall 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 sit astride of them and think of the bounties of your Lord, you may say: "All glory to Him who subjugated these for us. We were incapable of doing so. (13) And verily, to Our Lord we indeed are to return! (14) Yet they make some of His servants partners in His divinity. Man is clearly ungrateful! (15)
