Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
Ha-Mim. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Quran, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings]. (1) By this luminous Book. (2) verily We have made it an Arabic Qur'an that you may understand. (3) and behold, it is in the Essence of the Book, with Us; sublime indeed, wise. (4) Should We withdraw the admonition from you because you are a people far gone in transgression? (5) Many a prophet had We sent to the earlier communities, (6) And not a prophet came unto them but him they were wont to mock. (7) so We destroyed those who were mightier in courage than they. And the example of the ancients has passed away. (8) If you ask them: "Who created the heavens and the earth?" they will answer: "The Mighty and All-knowing created them," (9) Who has made the earth a cradle for you and made thereon paths for you so that, hopefully, 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) He Who created these pairs, all of them, and provided you ships and cattle on which you ride, (12) so that when you are mounted upon them you may remember the bounty of your Lord, and say: “Glory be to Him Who has subjected this to Us whereas we did not have the strength to subdue it. (13) Surely we have to go back to our Lord." (14) Yet they assign to Him some of His own (created) worshipers! Clearly, the human is unthankful. (15)
