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-Meem. (Alphabets of the Arabic language Allah, and to whomever He reveals, know their precise meanings.) (1) By the manifest Book (that makes things clear, i.e. this Quran). (2) behold, We have made it an Arabic Koran; haply you will understand; (3) Indeed it is transcribed in the Original Book with Us; sublime and full of wisdom. (4) What! shall We then turn away the reminder from you altogether because you are an extravagant people? (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 than these; such was the example of the earlier peoples. (8) And if thou askest them: who hath created the heavens and the earth? they will surely say: created them the Mighty, the Knower. (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 sent down water from the sky with a proper measure, so We revived a dead city with it; this is how you will be taken out. (11) And Who has created all the pairs and has appointed for you ships and cattle on which you 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 Him some of His own (created) worshipers! Clearly, the human is unthankful. (15)
