Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
Ha Mim (1) By oath of the clear Qur’an. (2) Verily We! We have made it an Arabic Qur'an that haply ye may reflect. (3) Indeed it is transcribed in the Original Book with Us; sublime and 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) Yet never did a Prophet come to them but they mocked him. (7) Then We destroyed men mightier than these in prowess; and the example of the men of old hath gone (before them). (8) And if thou askest them: who hath created the heavens and the earth? they will surely say: created them the Mighty, the Knower. (9) Who hath made for you the earth a bed, and hath made for you paths therein that haply ye may be directed. (10) It is He who has sent down water from the sky in a known measure by which He has given life to the dead earth. In the same way will you also be resurrected. (11) And Who has created all the pairs and has appointed for you ships and cattle on which you 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) “And indeed we have to return to our Lord.” (14) Yet they assign to Him some of His own (created) worshipers! Clearly, the human is unthankful. (15)
