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
HaMeem. (1) By the Book that makes things clear, (2) verily We have made it an Arabic Qur'an that you may understand. (3) And verily it is, in the Original Book before Us, indeed exalted. (4) Can We ignore sending you the Quran just because you are a transgressing people? (5) And how many Prophets We did send among the earlier people! (6) No Prophet came to them whom they did not mock. (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 indeed if you ask them, "Who has created the heavens and the earth?" They will surely say: "The All-Mighty, the All-Knower 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) so that perhaps when you ride them, you will recall the bounties of your Lord and when you establish your control over it you would say, "Glory belongs to Him who has made it subservient to us when we would not have been able to do so ourselves. (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)
