Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
Ha-Mim. (1) By the Clear Book, (2) Surely We have made it an Arabic Quran that you may understand. (3) It is inscribed in the original Book (of Books) with Us, sublime, dispenser of (all) laws. (4) Should We divert this Good Counsel from you because you are a people immersed in extravagance? (5) We have sent many a prophet to earlier peoples (6) But there would not come to them a prophet except that they used to ridicule him. (7) Then We destroyed men stronger (in power) than these, and the example of the ancients has passed away (before them). (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) 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 sendeth down water from the sky in (due) measure, and We revive a dead land therewith. Even so will ye be brought forth; (11) And who created the species, all of them, and has made for you of ships and animals those which you mount. (12) In order that you may mount firmly on their backs, and then may remember the Favour of your Lord when you mount thereon, and say: "Glory to Him who has subjected this to us, and we could never have it (by our efforts)." (13) And verily unto our Lord we are to return. (14) Yet they have made some of His servants a part of Him. Indeed man is most evidently thankless. (15)
