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 the Clear Book (2) Surely We have made it an Arabic Quran that you may understand. (3) And verily, it is in the Mother of the Book, in Our Presence, high (in dignity), full of wisdom. (4) What! shall We then turn away the reminder from you altogether because you are an extravagant people? (5) And how many a prophet We sent among the ancients. (6) But never yet came a prophet to them without their deriding him (7) We destroyed the strongest among them in power. The stories of the ancient people have already been mentioned. (8) Yet, if you ask them who created the heavens and the earth, they will answer: 'The Almighty, the Knower created them' (9) Who has made the earth a cradle for you and made thereon paths for you so that, hopefully, you may find your way (10) and who sent down out of heaven water in measure; and We revived thereby a land that was dead; even so you shall be brought forth; (11) And who created the species, all of them, and has made for you of ships and animals those which you mount. (12) So that you may properly mount their backs, and may remember your Lord’s favour when you have mounted them, and say, “Purity is to Him, Who has given this ride in our control, and we did not have the strength for it.” (13) To our Lord we shall all return". (14) Yet they have assigned to Him a part of His own servants! Man is dearly unthankful. (15)
