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) By the Clear Book; (2) We verily, have made it a Quran in Arabic, that you may be able to understand (its meanings and its admonitions). (3) And Verily, it (this Quran) is in the Mother of the Book (i.e. Al-Lauh Al-Mahfuz), before Us, indeed Exalted, full of Wisdom. (4) Should We divert this Good Counsel from you because you are a people immersed in extravagance? (5) How many a Prophet did We send to the ancients, (6) but whenever a prophet came to them, they mocked 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 ask them, “Who has created the heavens and the earth?”, they will surely say, “They are created by the Most Honourable, the All Knowing.” (9) Who has made the earth a cradle for you and made thereon paths for you so that, hopefully, 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) He Who created these pairs, all of them, and provided 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) indeed, to our Lord we are turning' (14) And they allot to Him a portion of His bondmen! Lo! man is verily a mere ingrate. (15)
