Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
HaMeem. (1) I swear by the Book that makes things clear: (2) Indeed, We have made it an Arabic Qur'an that you might understand. (3) And verily, [originating as it does] in the source, with Us, of all revelation, it is indeed sublime, full of wisdom. (4) Shall We utterly ignore you because ye are a wanton folk? (5) We have sent many a prophet to earlier peoples (6) But there would not come to them a prophet except that they used to ridicule him. (7) so We destroyed those who were mightier in courage than they. And the example of the ancients has passed away. (8) If thou askest them, 'Who created the heavens and earth?' they will say, 'The All-mighty, the All-knowing 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) And Who sent down water from the sky with a proper measure, so We revived a dead city with it; this is how you will be taken out. (11) And who created the species, all of them, and has made for you of ships and animals those which you mount. (12) That you may settle yourselves upon their backs and then remember the favor of your Lord when you have settled upon them and say. "Exalted is He who has subjected this to us, and we could not have [otherwise] subdued it. (13) indeed, to our Lord we are turning' (14) Yet they assign to some of His slaves a share with Him (by pretending that He has children, and considering them as equals or co-partners in worship with Him). Verily, man is indeed a manifest ingrate! (15)
