Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
Ha. Mim. (1) By the Clear Book (2) We have indeed sent it as a Qur’an in the Arabic language, so that you may understand. (3) and behold, it is in the Essence of the Book, with Us; sublime indeed, wise. (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) And there came not to them a prophet but they mocked at him. (7) so We destroyed those who were mightier in courage than they. And the example of the ancients has 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 who made the earth a bed for you, and laid out tracks upon it so that you may find the way; (10) And He it is who sends down, again and again, waters from the sky in due measure: and [as] We raise therewith dead land to life, even thus will you be brought forth [from the dead]. (11) It is He who has created everything in pairs and the ships and cattle for you to ride, (12) That ye may mount upon their backs, and may remember your Lord's favour when ye mount thereon, and may say: Glorified be He Who hath subdued these unto us, and we were not capable (of subduing them); (13) And verily, to Our Lord we indeed are to return! (14) Yet they have assigned to Him a part of His own servants! Man is dearly unthankful. (15)
