Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
Ha-Mim (1) CONSIDER this divine writ, clear in itself and clearly showing the truth: (2) Surely We have made it an Arabic Quran that you may understand. (3) And surely it is in the original of the Book with Us, truly elevated, full of wisdom. (4) So shall We divert the advice away from you, because you are a nation that exceeds the limits? (5) How many a prophet did We send among the men of old! (6) but not a Prophet came to them, without they mocked at him; (7) And We destroyed greater than them in [striking] power, and the example of the former peoples has preceded. (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) Who hath made for you the earth a bed, and hath made for you paths therein that haply ye may be directed. (10) Who sent down water in due measure from the sky, then quickened a region that was dead -- So shall We bring you forth -- (11) He Who created all the pairs, and appointed for you ships and cattle whereupon ye ride. (12) That ye may mount upon their backs, and may remember your Lord's favour when ye mount thereon, and may say: Glorified be He Who hath subdued these unto us, and we were not capable (of subduing them); (13) surely unto our Lord we are turning.' (14) Yet they make some of His creatures His offspring! Man is surely most ungrateful. (15)
