Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Ha, Meem. (1) CONSIDER this divine writ, clear in itself and clearly showing the truth: (2) behold, We have made it an Arabic Koran; haply you will understand; (3) And surely it is in the original of the Book with Us, truly elevated, full of wisdom. (4) Should We have withdrawn the Reminder from you as you are a people who exceed the bounds? (5) And how many a prophet We sent among the ancients. (6) And never came there a Prophet to them but they used to mock at him. (7) We utterly destroyed them although they were greater in might than these. The examples of ancient peoples have gone before. (8) If you ask them: "Who created the heavens and the earth?" they will answer: "The Mighty and All-knowing created them," (9) (Yea, the same that) has made for you the earth (like a carpet) spread out, and has made for you roads (and channels) therein, in order that ye may find guidance (on the way); (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) He who created pairs of everything, and fashioned for you boats and beasts on which you ride, (12) In order that you may mount firmly on their backs, and then may remember the Favour of your Lord when you mount thereon, and say: "Glory to Him who has subjected this to us, and we could never have it (by our efforts)." (13) It is to our Lord that we shall eventually return.” (14) Yet they make some of His servants partners in His divinity. Man is clearly ungrateful! (15)
