Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
Ha, Meem. (1) By the Book that makes things clear,- (2) That We made it a distinctly lucid Qur'an that you may understand. (3) And surely it is in the original of the Book with Us, truly elevated, full of wisdom. (4) Then should We turn the message away, disregarding you, because you are a transgressing people? (5) And how many a prophet have We sent among the ancients. (6) but not a Prophet came to them, without they mocked at 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 you should ask them, "Who has created the heavens and the earth?" they would surely say, "They were created by the Exalted in Might, the Knowing." (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 sends water down from the sky in due measure, We revive dead land with it and likewise you will be resurrected from the grave, (11) And He Who created pairs of all things, and made for you of the ships and the cattle what you ride on, (12) in order that you might gain mastery over them, and that, whenever you have mastered them, you might remember your Sustainer's blessings and say: "Limitless in His glory is He who has made [all] this subservient to our use - since [but for Him,] we would not have been able to attain to it. (13) And lo! unto our Lord we surely are returning. (14) Yet they make some of His creatures His offspring! Man is surely most ungrateful. (15)
