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 Book that makes things clear, (2) We verily, have made it a Quran in Arabic, that you may be able to understand (its meanings and its admonitions). (3) And verily it is, in the Original Book before Us, indeed exalted. (4) Shall We utterly ignore you because ye are a wanton folk? (5) Many a prophet had We sent to the earlier communities, (6) But there would not come to them a prophet except that they used to ridicule him. (7) so We destroyed those who were mightier than these; such was the example of the earlier peoples. (8) Yet thus it is [with most people]: if thou ask them, "Who is it that has created the heavens and the earth?" - they will surely answer, "The Almighty, the All-Knowing has created them." (9) He it is Who made this earth for you a cradle and made in it pathways for you that you may find the way to your destination; (10) And Who sendeth down water from the sky in (due) measure, and We revive a dead land therewith. Even so will ye be brought forth; (11) and who created the pairs, all of them, and appointed for you ships and cattle such as you ride, (12) That you may settle yourselves upon their backs and then remember the favor of your Lord when you have settled upon them and say. "Exalted is He who has subjected this to us, and we could not have [otherwise] subdued it. (13) Hence, verily, it is unto Him that we must always turn." (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)
