Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Ha-Mim (1) By the Clear Book; (2) behold, We have caused it to be a discourse in the Arabic tongue, so that you might encompass it with your reason. (3) It (the Quran) exists in the original Book with Us which is certainly Most Exalted, full of wisdom and (beyond linguistic structures). (4) Then should We turn the message away, disregarding you, because you are a transgressing people? (5) But how many were the prophets We sent amongst the peoples of old? (6) And not a prophet came unto them but him they were wont to mock. (7) Then We destroyed those who were stronger than these in prowess, and the case of the ancients has gone before, (8) And if thou askest them: who hath created the heavens and the earth? they will surely say: created them the Mighty, the Knower. (9) Who made the earth a resting-place for you, and placed roads for you therein, that haply ye may find your way; (10) Who sent down water in due measure from the sky, then quickened a region that was dead -- So shall We bring you 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 you may be seated on their backs and then remember your Lord's blessing when you are seated on them, and say, 'Glory be to Him, who has subjected this to us, and we ourselves were not equal to it; (13) It is to our Lord that we shall eventually return.” (14) Yet they attribute to some of His servants a share with Him (in his godhead)! truly is man a blasphemous ingrate avowed!
