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 manifest Book (that makes things clear, i.e. this Quran). (2) We have made it an Arabic Quran so that you may understand. (3) It (the Quran) exists in the original Book with Us which is certainly Most Exalted, full of wisdom and (beyond linguistic structures). (4) [O YOU who deny the truth!] Should We, perchance, withdraw this reminder from you altogether, seeing that you are people bent on wasting your own selves? (5) And how many a prophet We sent among the former peoples, (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) Yet, if you ask them who created the heavens and the earth, they will answer: 'The Almighty, the Knower created them' (9) Who made the earth a resting-place for you, and placed roads for you therein, that haply ye may find your way; (10) It is He who sends water down from the sky in due measure, We revive dead land with it and likewise you will be resurrected from the grave, (11) And He Who created pairs of all things, and made for you of the ships and the cattle what you ride on, (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 to our Lord, surely, must we turn back!" (14) Yet they have made some of His servants a part of Him. Indeed man is most evidently thankless. (15)
