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) Truly, it is inscribed in the Original Book, in Our keeping; it is sublime and full of wisdom. (4) Shall We turn away the Remembrance from you because you are a sinful nation? (5) Many a prophet had We sent to the earlier communities, (6) And never came there a Prophet to them but they used to mock at him. (7) Then We destroyed those who were stronger than these in prowess, and the case of the ancients has gone before, (8) If thou wert to question them, 'Who created the heavens and the earth?' They would be sure to reply, 'they were created by (Him), the Exalted in Power, Full of Knowledge';- (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 He Who sends down water from the cloud according to a measure, then We raise to life thereby a dead country, even thus shall you be brought forth; (11) He Who created these pairs, all of them, and provided you ships and cattle on which you ride, (12) That you may settle yourselves upon their backs and then remember the favor of your Lord when you have settled upon them and say. "Exalted is He who has subjected this to us, and we could not have [otherwise] subdued it. (13) And verily unto our Lord we are to return. (14) And they assign to Him a part of His servants; man, to be sure, is clearly ungrateful. (15)
