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) By the Book that makes things clear, (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 surely it is in the original of the Book with Us, truly elevated, full of wisdom. (4) Should We have withdrawn the Reminder from you as you are a people who exceed the bounds? (5) But how many were the prophets We sent amongst the peoples of old? (6) but not a Prophet came to them, without they mocked at him; (7) We destroyed the strongest among them in power. The stories of the ancient people have already been mentioned. (8) And if you should ask them, Who created the heavens and the earth? they would most certainly say: The Mighty, the Knowing One, has created them; (9) He Who made the earth a resting-place for you, and made in it ways for you that you may go aright; (10) And Who sendeth down water from the sky in (due) measure, and We revive a dead land therewith. Even so will ye be brought forth; (11) And the One Who created all pairs, and made the ships and cattle as rides for you. (12) so that you may sit firmly on their backs. Then once you have mounted them, remember your Lord's favour and say, "Glory be to Him who has subjected these creatures to us; we would never on our own have subdued 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)
