Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
Ha-Mim (1) By the manifest Book (that makes things clear, i.e. this Quran). (2) verily We have made it an Arabic Qur'an that you may understand. (3) And surely it is in the original of the Book with Us, truly elevated, full of wisdom. (4) Shall We utterly ignore you because ye are a wanton folk? (5) And how many a prophet did We send to people of olden times! (6) Yet never did a Prophet come to them but they mocked him. (7) so We destroyed those who were mightier in courage than they. And the example of the ancients has passed away. (8) Yet thus it is [with most people]: if thou ask them, "Who is it that has created the heavens and the earth?" - they will surely answer, "The Almighty, the All-Knowing has created them." (9) Who made the earth a resting-place for you, and placed roads for you therein, that haply ye may find your way; (10) And who sends down rain from the sky in measured amounts, and We revive thereby a dead land - thus will you be brought forth - (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) It is to our Lord that we shall eventually return.” (14) AND YET, they attribute to Him offspring from among some of the beings created by Him! Verily, most obviously bereft of all gratitude is man! (15)
