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 Mim. (1) By the Book that makes things clear,- (2) That We made it a distinctly lucid Qur'an that you may understand. (3) Indeed it is transcribed in the Original Book with Us; sublime and full of wisdom. (4) [O YOU who deny the truth!] Should We, perchance, withdraw this reminder from you altogether, seeing that you are people bent on wasting your own selves? (5) Many a prophet had We sent to the earlier communities, (6) But never yet came a prophet to them without their deriding him (7) Then We destroyed men mightier than these in prowess; and the example of the men of old hath gone (before them). (8) If thou askest them, 'Who created the heavens and earth?' they will say, 'The All-mighty, the All-knowing created them.' (9) (It is) He who made the earth to be a cradle for you and made in it ways for you, in order that you are guided. (10) And He Who sends down water from the cloud according to a measure, then We raise to life thereby a dead country, even thus shall you be brought forth; (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) So that when you sit astride of them and think of the bounties of your Lord, you may say: "All glory to Him who subjugated these for us. We were incapable of doing so. (13) And indeed we, to our Lord, will [surely] return." (14) Yet they attribute to some of His servants a share with Him (in his godhead)! truly is man a blasphemous ingrate avowed! (15)
