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 Dispenser of Grace
Ha. Mim. (1) By the Clear Book; (2) We have made it an Arabic reading text so that perhaps you may understand. (3) It (the Quran) exists in the original Book with Us which is certainly Most Exalted, full of wisdom and (beyond linguistic structures). (4) So shall We divert the advice away from you, because you are a nation that exceeds the limits? (5) And how many a Prophet have We sent amongst the men of old. (6) And there came not to them a prophet but they mocked at him. (7) So We destroyed far more powerful (nations) than they. The example of earlier people is there. (8) If you ask them: "Who created the heavens and the earth?" they will answer: "The Mighty and All-knowing created them," (9) The One Who made the earth a bed for you, and made roads for you in it, so that you may be guided. (10) It is He who has sent down water from the sky in a known measure by which He has given life to the dead earth. In the same way will you also be resurrected. (11) It is He who has created everything in pairs and the ships and cattle for you to ride, (12) In order that ye may sit firm and square on their backs, and when so seated, ye may celebrate the (kind) favour of your Lord, and say, "Glory to Him Who has subjected these to our (use), for we could never have accomplished this (by ourselves), (13) It is to our Lord that we shall eventually return.” (14) AND YET, they attribute to Him offspring from among some of the beings created by Him! Verily, most obviously bereft of all gratitude is man! (15)
