Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Ha'. Mim. (1) By the clear Book, (2) Indeed, We have made it an Arabic Qur'an that you might understand. (3) And Lo! in the Source of Decrees, which We possess, it is indeed sublime, decisive. (4) Can We ignore sending you the Quran just because you are a transgressing people? (5) And how many a prophet did We send to people of olden times! (6) but whenever a prophet came to them, they mocked him, (7) so We destroyed men stronger in valour than they, and the example of the ancients passed away. (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) Who hath made for you the earth a bed, and hath made for you paths therein that haply ye may be directed. (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) He who created pairs of everything, and fashioned for you boats and beasts on which you ride, (12) That ye may mount upon their backs, and may remember your Lord's favour when ye mount thereon, and may say: Glorified be He Who hath subdued these unto us, and we were not capable (of subduing them); (13) And verily unto our Lord we are to return. (14) Yet they make some of His servants partners in His divinity. Man is clearly ungrateful! (15)
