Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
Ha Mim (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) Can We ignore sending you the Quran just because you are a transgressing people? (5) How many Messengers did We send to the ancient people? (6) Yet never did a Prophet come to them but they mocked him. (7) Then We destroyed men stronger (in power) than these, and the example of the ancients has passed away (before them). (8) If thou wert to question them, 'Who created the heavens and the earth?' They would be sure to reply, 'they were created by (Him), the Exalted in Power, Full of Knowledge';- (9) Who made the earth a resting-place for you, and placed roads for you therein, that haply ye may find your way; (10) And He Who sends down water from the cloud according to a measure, then We raise to life thereby a dead country, even thus shall you be brought forth; (11) He Who created all the pairs, and appointed for you ships and cattle whereupon ye ride. (12) That ye mount firmly on the backs thereof, and then may remember the favour of your Lord when ye mount thereon, and may say: hallowed be He Who hath subjected this unto us, and we for it were not fit. (13) And lo! unto our Lord we surely are returning. (14) Yet they have assigned to Him a part of His own servants! Man is dearly unthankful. (15)
