Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
HA MIM. (1) By the Clear Book, (2) We have made it an Arabic Koran in order that you understand. (3) It (the Quran) exists in the original Book with Us which is certainly Most Exalted, full of wisdom and (beyond linguistic structures). (4) Should We withdraw the admonition from you because you are a people far gone in transgression? (5) Many a prophet had We sent to the earlier communities, (6) And there came not to them a prophet but they mocked at him. (7) so We destroyed men stronger in valour than they, and the example of the ancients passed away. (8) If thou askest them, 'Who created the heavens and earth?' they will say, 'The All-mighty, the All-knowing created them.' (9) He it is who has made the earth a cradle for you, and has provided for you ways [of livelihood] thereon, so that you might follow the right path. (10) And Who sends down water (rain) from the sky in due measure. Then We revive a dead land therewith, and even so you will be brought forth (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 perhaps when you ride them, you will recall the bounties of your Lord and when you establish your control over it you would say, "Glory belongs to Him who has made it subservient to us when we would not have been able to do so ourselves. (13) And lo! unto our Lord we surely are returning. (14) Yet they assign to some of His slaves a share with Him (by pretending that He has children, and considering them as equals or co-partners in worship with Him). Verily, man is indeed a manifest ingrate! (15)
