89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
HA MIM. (1) By the Clear Book; (2) behold, We have caused it to be a discourse in the Arabic tongue, so that you might encompass it with your reason. (3) And indeed it is, in the Mother of the Book with Us, exalted and 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) How many a Prophet We sent among the ancients, (6) no Prophet came to them except that they mocked him, (7) Then We destroyed men stronger (in power) than these, and the example of the ancients has passed away (before them). (8) And indeed if you ask them, "Who has created the heavens and the earth?" They will surely say: "The All-Mighty, the All-Knower created them." (9) (Yea, the same that) has made for you the earth (like a carpet) spread out, and has made for you roads (and channels) therein, in order that ye may find guidance (on the way); (10) He Who sent down water from the sky in a determined measure, and thereby We revived a dead land: likewise will you be raised up (from the earth) -- (11) That has created pairs in all things, and has made for you ships and cattle on which ye 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) “And indeed we have to return to our Lord.” (14) And they assign to Him a part of His servants; man, to be sure, is clearly ungrateful.
