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
HaMeem. (1) By the Book that makes things clear, (2) We have indeed sent it as a Qur’an in the Arabic language, so that you may understand. (3) And verily, [originating as it does] in the source, with Us, of all revelation, it is indeed sublime, full of wisdom. (4) Should We withdraw the admonition from you because you are a people far gone in transgression? (5) And how many a Prophet have We sent amongst the men of old. (6) And not a prophet came unto them but him they were wont to mock. (7) We therefore destroyed the people who were more forceful than these, and the example of the earlier ones has already gone by. (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) The One Who made the earth a bed for you, and made roads for you in it, so that you may be guided. (10) It is He who sends water down from the sky in due measure, We revive dead land with it and likewise you will be resurrected from the grave, (11) And Who hath treated the pairs, all of them, and appointed for you from ships and cattle things whereon ye ride. (12) in order that you might gain mastery over them, and that, whenever you have mastered them, you might remember your Sustainer's blessings and say: "Limitless in His glory is He who has made [all] this subservient to our use - since [but for Him,] we would not have been able to attain to it. (13) It is to our Lord that we shall eventually return.” (14) Yet they make some of His servants partners in His divinity. Man is clearly ungrateful! (15)
