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, Meem. (1) I swear by the illustrious Book. (2) We have made it a Qur'an in Arabic, that ye may be able to understand (and learn wisdom). (3) It is in the Origin of the Book with Us, sublime and wise. (4) So shall We divert the advice away from you, because you are a nation that exceeds the limits? (5) And how many Prophets We did send among the earlier people! (6) And never came there a prophet to them but they mocked him. (7) Then We destroyed men mightier than these in prowess; and the example of the men of old hath gone (before them). (8) If you ask them, "Who has created the heavens and the earth?", they will surely answer, "The Almighty, the All Knowing One has created them." (9) He Who made the earth a resting-place for you, and made in it ways for you that you may go aright; (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) He Who created these pairs, all of them, and provided you ships and cattle on which you ride, (12) That you may firmly sit on their backs, then remember the favor of your Lord when you are firmly seated thereon, and say: Glory be to Him Who made this subservient to us and we were not able to do it (13) And to our Lord we shall surely return." (14) Yet they assign to Him some of His own (created) worshipers! Clearly, the human is unthankful. (15)
