Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
Ha, Meem. (1) By oath of the clear Qur’an. (2) behold, We have made it an Arabic Koran; haply you will understand; (3) It is inscribed in the original Book (of Books) with Us, sublime, dispenser of (all) laws. (4) Should We divert this Good Counsel from you because you are a people immersed in extravagance? (5) And how many a prophet did We send to people of olden times! (6) but whenever a prophet came to them, they mocked him, (7) Wherefore We destroyed peoples mightier than these in prowess; and there hath gone forth the example of the ancients. (8) If thou wert to question them, 'Who created the heavens and the earth?' They would be sure to reply, 'they were created by (Him), the Exalted in Power, Full of Knowledge';- (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 (it is He), who sends down water from the sky in its measure thereby We revive the land that was dead, as such you shall be brought forth. (11) And Who has created all the pairs and has appointed for you ships and cattle on which you ride, (12) That you may firmly sit on their backs, then remember the favor of your Lord when you are firmly seated thereon, and say: Glory be to Him Who made this subservient to us and we were not able to do it (13) “And indeed we have to return to our Lord.” (14) Yet they have made some of His servants a part of Him. Indeed man is most evidently thankless. (15)
