Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
Ha-Mim. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Quran, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings]. (1) By oath of the clear Qur’an. (2) verily We have made it an Arabic Qur'an that you may understand. (3) And Verily, it (this Quran) is in the Mother of the Book (i.e. Al-Lauh Al-Mahfuz), before Us, indeed Exalted, full of Wisdom. (4) Shall We utterly ignore you because ye are a wanton folk? (5) How many a Prophet did We send to the earlier peoples! (6) but whenever a prophet came to them, they mocked him, (7) So We destroyed (them)- stronger in power than these;- and (thus) has passed on the Parable of the peoples of old. (8) Yet if you were to ask them: “Who created the heavens and the earth?” they will certainly say: “The All-Mighty, the All-Knowing has created them.” (9) It is He who has made the earth for you as a cradle and has made roads therein so that you will perhaps seek guidance. (10) And Who sent down water from the sky with a proper measure, so We revived a dead city with it; this is how you will be taken out. (11) and who created the pairs, all of them, and appointed for you ships and cattle such as you ride, (12) so that when you are mounted upon them you may remember the bounty of your Lord, and say: “Glory be to Him Who has subjected this to Us whereas we did not have the strength to subdue it. (13) Surely we have to go back to our Lord." (14) Yet they assign to Him some of His own (created) worshipers! Clearly, the human is unthankful. (15)
