Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
Ha. Mim. (1) By the manifest Book (that makes things clear, i.e. this Quran). (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 Lo! in the Source of Decrees, which We possess, it is indeed sublime, decisive. (4) What! shall We then turn away the reminder from you altogether because you are an extravagant people? (5) And how many Prophets We did send among the earlier people! (6) And never came there a Prophet to them but they used to mock at him. (7) Then We destroyed men mightier than these in prowess; and the example of the men of old hath gone (before them). (8) And if thou (Muhammad) ask them: Who created the heavens and the earth, they will surely answer: The Mighty, the Knower created them; (9) Who hath made for you the earth a bed, and hath made for you paths therein that haply ye may be directed. (10) And He it is who sends down, again and again, waters from the sky in due measure: and [as] We raise therewith dead land to life, even thus will you be brought forth [from the dead]. (11) He who created pairs of everything, and fashioned for you boats and beasts on which you ride, (12) That you may firmly sit on their backs, then remember the favor of your Lord when you are firmly seated thereon, and say: Glory be to Him Who made this subservient to us and we were not able to do it (13) "And to our Lord, surely, must we turn back!" (14) And they appoint for Him from His bondmen a part! Verily man is an ingrate manifest. (15)
