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) By oath of the clear Qur’an. (2) We have made it a Qur'an in Arabic, that ye may be able to understand (and learn wisdom). (3) It is inscribed in the original Book (of Books) with Us, sublime, dispenser of (all) laws. (4) Can We ignore sending you the Quran just because you are a transgressing people? (5) But how many were the prophets We sent amongst the peoples of old? (6) No Prophet came to them whom they did not mock. (7) Then We destroyed those who were stronger than these in prowess, and the case of the ancients has gone before, (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) He it is Who made this earth for you a cradle and made in it pathways for you that you may find the way to your destination; (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) It is He who has created everything in pairs and the ships and cattle for you to ride, (12) In order that you may mount firmly on their backs, and then may remember the Favour of your Lord when you mount thereon, and say: "Glory to Him who has subjected this to us, and we could never have it (by our efforts)." (13) indeed, to our Lord we are turning' (14) But they have attributed to Him from His servants a portion. Indeed, man is clearly ungrateful. (15)
