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 Mim (1) I swear by the Book that makes things clear: (2) behold, We have caused it to be a discourse in the Arabic tongue, so that you might encompass it with your reason. (3) and behold, it is in the Essence of the Book, with Us; sublime indeed, wise. (4) What! shall We then turn away the reminder from you altogether because you are an extravagant people? (5) And how many a prophet have We sent among the ancients. (6) but whenever a prophet came to them, they mocked him, (7) and so, [in the end,] We destroyed them [even though they were] of greater might than these: and the [very] image of those people of old became a thing of the past. (8) And if thou (Muhammad) ask them: Who created the heavens and the earth, they will surely answer: The Mighty, the Knower 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 He Who sends down water from the cloud according to a measure, then We raise to life thereby a dead country, even thus shall you be brought forth; (11) And the One Who created all pairs, and made the ships and cattle as rides for you. (12) That ye mount firmly on the backs thereof, and then may remember the favour of your Lord when ye mount thereon, and may say: hallowed be He Who hath subjected this unto us, and we for it were not fit. (13) indeed, to our Lord we are turning' (14) Yet they have made some of His servants a part of Him. Indeed man is most evidently thankless. (15)
