89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Ha-Mim. (1) By the Clear Book (2) That We made it a distinctly lucid Qur'an that you may understand. (3) And verily it is, in the Original Book before Us, indeed exalted. (4) Shall We utterly ignore you because ye are a wanton folk? (5) How many a Prophet We sent among the ancients, (6) And never came there a prophet to them but they mocked him. (7) so We destroyed those who were mightier in courage than they. And the example of the ancients has passed away. (8) (Muhammad), if you ask them, "Who has created the heavens and the earth?" They will certainly say, "The Majestic and All-knowing God has created them". (9) He it is Who made this earth for you a cradle and made in it pathways for you that you may find the way to your destination; (10) And who sends down rain from the sky in measured amounts, and We revive thereby a dead land - thus will you be brought forth - (11) it is He who created all living things in pairs and gave you ships to sail in and beasts to ride upon (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) And verily, to Our Lord we indeed are to return! (14) And from* His bondmen, they appointed a portion for Him; man is indeed an open ingrate. (* Appointed some of His creation as His sons and daughters). (15)
