Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Ha. Mim. (1) I swear by the Book that makes things clear: (2) We verily, have made it a Quran in Arabic, that you may be able to understand (its meanings and its admonitions). (3) And the Qur’an is undoubtedly, in the Original Book with Us, surely the exalted, full of wisdom. (4) So shall We divert the advice away from you, because you are a nation that exceeds the limits? (5) How many a prophet did We send among the men of old! (6) And there came not to them a prophet but they mocked at him. (7) We destroyed the strongest among them in power. The stories of the ancient people have already been mentioned. (8) Yet if you were to ask them: “Who created the heavens and the earth?” they will certainly say: “The All-Mighty, the All-Knowing has created them.” (9) (It is) He who made the earth to be a cradle for you and made in it ways for you, in order that you are guided. (10) And He it is who sends down, again and again, waters from the sky in due measure: and [as] We raise therewith dead land to life, even thus will you be brought forth [from the dead]. (11) He who created pairs of everything, and fashioned for you boats and beasts on which you ride, (12) In order that ye may sit firm and square on their backs, and when so seated, ye may celebrate the (kind) favour of your Lord, and say, "Glory to Him Who has subjected these to our (use), for we could never have accomplished this (by ourselves), (13) And to our Lord we shall surely return." (14) Yet they make some of His servants partners in His divinity. Man is clearly ungrateful! (15)
