Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
Ha Mim (1) By the Clear Book, (2) That We made it a distinctly lucid Qur'an 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) Shall We turn away the Remembrance from you, for that you are a prodigal people? (5) How many Messengers did We send to the ancient people? (6) And never came there unto them a prophet but they used to mock him. (7) So We destroyed far more powerful (nations) than they. The example of earlier people is there. (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 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) 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) He Who created all the pairs, and appointed for you ships and cattle whereupon ye ride. (12) so that you can sit upon their backs and then remember the Favors of your Lord and say: 'Exaltations to Him who has subjected these to us otherwise, we ourselves were not capable of it, (13) "And to our Lord, surely, must we turn back!" (14) Yet they make some of His creatures His offspring! Man is surely most ungrateful. (15)
