Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Ha-Mim (1) CONSIDER this divine writ, clear in itself and clearly showing the truth: (2) Verily We! We have made it an Arabic Qur'an that haply ye may reflect. (3) It is in the Origin of the Book with Us, sublime and wise. (4) Should We withdraw the admonition from you because you are a people far gone in transgression? (5) How many a Prophet We sent among the ancients, (6) But never yet came a prophet to them without their deriding him (7) We utterly destroyed them although they were greater in might than these. The examples of ancient peoples have gone before. (8) And if you should ask them, Who created the heavens and the earth? they would most certainly say: The Mighty, the Knowing One, has created them; (9) Who has made for you the earth like a bed, and has made for you roads therein, in order that you may find your way, (10) And (it is He), who sends down water from the sky in its measure thereby We revive the land that was dead, as such you shall be brought forth. (11) And Who has created all the pairs and has appointed for you ships and cattle on which you ride, (12) So that you may properly mount their backs, and may remember your Lord’s favour when you have mounted them, and say, “Purity is to Him, Who has given this ride in our control, and we did not have the strength for it.” (13) To our Lord we shall all return". (14) And they assign to Him a part of His servants; man, to be sure, is clearly ungrateful. (15)
