Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, 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) We verily, have made it a Quran in Arabic, that you may be able to understand (its meanings and its admonitions). (3) And surely it is in the original of the Book with Us, truly elevated, full of wisdom. (4) Shall We turn away the Remembrance from you, for that you are a prodigal people? (5) We have sent many a prophet to earlier peoples (6) And never came there a Prophet to them but they used to mock at him. (7) Then We destroyed men stronger (in power) than these, and the example of the ancients has passed away (before them). (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) He who made the earth a bed for you, and laid out tracks upon it so that you may find the way; (10) It is He who has sent down water from the sky in a known measure by which He has given life to the dead earth. In the same way will you also be resurrected. (11) And He it is who has created all opposites. And He [it is who] has provided for you all those ships and animals whereon you ride, (12) That you may settle yourselves upon their backs and then remember the favor of your Lord when you have settled upon them and say. "Exalted is He who has subjected this to us, and we could not have [otherwise] subdued it. (13) indeed, to our Lord we are turning' (14) Yet they attribute to some of His servants a share with Him (in his godhead)! truly is man a blasphemous ingrate avowed! (15)
