Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
Ha. Mim. (1) I swear by the illustrious Book. (2) verily We have made it an Arabic Qur'an that you may understand. (3) Truly, it is inscribed in the Original Book, in Our keeping; it is sublime and full of wisdom. (4) Then should We turn the message away, disregarding you, because you are a transgressing people? (5) But how many were the prophets We sent amongst the peoples of old? (6) but whenever a prophet came to them, they mocked him, (7) We therefore destroyed the people who were more forceful than these, and the example of the earlier ones has already gone by. (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) 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) And He it is who has created all opposites. And He [it is who] has provided for you all those ships and animals whereon you ride, (12) in order that you might gain mastery over them, and that, whenever you have mastered them, you might remember your Sustainer's blessings and say: "Limitless in His glory is He who has made [all] this subservient to our use - since [but for Him,] we would not have been able to attain to it. (13) And lo! unto our Lord we surely are returning. (14) But they have attributed to Him from His servants a portion. Indeed, man is clearly ungrateful. (15)
