Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
Ha-Mim (1) By this luminous Book. (2) We verily, have made it a Quran in Arabic, that you may be able to understand (its meanings and its admonitions). (3) It is inscribed in the original Book (of Books) with Us, sublime, dispenser of (all) laws. (4) Should We have withdrawn the Reminder from you as you are a people who exceed the bounds? (5) How many a Prophet did We send to the earlier peoples! (6) And never came there a prophet to them but 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) (Muhammad), if you ask them, "Who has created the heavens and the earth?" They will certainly say, "The Majestic and All-knowing God has created them". (9) He it is who has made the earth a cradle for you, and has provided for you ways [of livelihood] thereon, so that you might follow the right path. (10) And (it is He), who sends down water from the sky in its measure thereby We revive the land that was dead, as such you shall be brought forth. (11) That has created pairs in all things, and has made for you ships and cattle on which ye 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) surely unto our Lord we are turning.' (14) Yet they have assigned to Him a part of His own servants! Man is dearly unthankful. (15)
