Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Ha. Mim. (1) By the manifest Book (that makes things clear, i.e. this Quran). (2) behold, We have made it an Arabic Koran; haply you will understand; (3) Indeed it is transcribed in the Original Book with Us; sublime and full of wisdom. (4) [O YOU who deny the truth!] Should We, perchance, withdraw this reminder from you altogether, seeing that you are people bent on wasting your own selves? (5) How many a Prophet We sent among the ancients, (6) But never did a prophet come at whom they did not scoff. (7) Then We destroyed those who were stronger than these in prowess, and the case of the ancients has gone before, (8) If you ask them, "Who has created the heavens and the earth?", they will surely answer, "The Almighty, the All Knowing One has created them." (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) That sends down (from time to time) rain from the sky in due measure;- and We raise to life therewith a land that is dead; even so will ye be raised (from the dead);- (11) it is He who created all living things in pairs and gave you ships to sail in and beasts to ride upon (12) so that you may sit firmly on their backs. Then once you have mounted them, remember your Lord's favour and say, "Glory be to Him who has subjected these creatures to us; we would never on our own have subdued them. (13) To our Lord we shall all return". (14) Yet they attribute to some of His servants a share with Him (in his godhead)! truly is man a blasphemous ingrate avowed! (15)
