Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Ha-Mim. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Quran, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings]. (1) I swear by the Book that makes things clear: (2) Lo! We have appointed it a Lecture, in Arabic that haply ye may understand. (3) And verily, it is in the Mother of the Book, in Our Presence, high (in dignity), full of wisdom. (4) Shall We then take away the Message from you and repel (you), for that ye are a people transgressing beyond bounds? (5) And how many a prophet did We send to people of olden times! (6) And whenever any Prophet came to them, they only mocked at him. (7) We utterly destroyed them although they were greater in might than these. The examples of ancient peoples have gone before. (8) And if you ask them, “Who has created the heavens and the earth?”, they will surely say, “They are created by the Most Honourable, the All Knowing.” (9) Who has made for you the earth like a bed, and has made for you roads therein, in order that you may find your way, (10) And Who sends down water (rain) from the sky in due measure. Then We revive a dead land therewith, and even so you will be brought forth (from the dead), (11) It is He who has created everything in pairs and the ships and cattle for you to 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) Hence, verily, it is unto Him that we must always turn." (14) And they assign to Him a part of His servants; man, to be sure, is clearly ungrateful. (15)
