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
Ha-Mim. (1) By the clear Book, (2) verily We have made it an Arabic Qur'an that you may understand. (3) And Lo! in the Source of Decrees, which We possess, it is indeed sublime, decisive. (4) Shall We turn away the Remembrance from you because you are a sinful nation? (5) And how many a prophet We sent among the former peoples, (6) And not a prophet came unto them but him they were wont to mock. (7) We therefore destroyed the people who were more forceful than these, and the example of the earlier ones has already gone by. (8) (Muhammad), if you ask them, "Who has created the heavens and the earth?" They will certainly say, "The Majestic and All-knowing God has created them". (9) The One Who made the earth a bed for you, and made roads for you in it, so that you may be guided. (10) It is He who sends water down from the sky in due measure, We revive dead land with it and likewise you will be resurrected from the grave, (11) He Who created all the pairs, and appointed for you ships and cattle whereupon ye ride. (12) so that perhaps when you ride them, you will recall the bounties of your Lord and when you establish your control over it you would say, "Glory belongs to Him who has made it subservient to us when we would not have been able to do so ourselves. (13) And lo! unto our Lord we surely are returning. (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)
