89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Ha, Meem. (1) CONSIDER this divine writ, clear in itself and clearly showing the truth: (2) That We made it a distinctly lucid Qur'an that you may understand. (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 (4) Should We have withdrawn the Reminder from you as you are a people who exceed the bounds? (5) How many a Prophet did We send to the ancients, (6) And never came there unto them a prophet but they used to mock him. (7) so We destroyed those who were mightier in courage than they. And the example of the ancients has passed away. (8) And indeed if you ask them, "Who has created the heavens and the earth?" They will surely say: "The All-Mighty, the All-Knower created them." (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) It is He who has sent down water from the sky in a known measure by which He has given life to the dead earth. In the same way will you also be resurrected. (11) He Who created these pairs, all of them, and provided you ships and cattle 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) And from* His bondmen, they appointed a portion for Him; man is indeed an open ingrate. (* Appointed some of His creation as His sons and daughters). (15)
