Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Ha'. Mim. (1) I call to witness the lucent Book, (2) Surely We have made it an Arabic Quran that you may understand. (3) And indeed it is, in the Mother of the Book with Us, exalted and full of wisdom. (4) Should We divert this Good Counsel from you because you are a people immersed in extravagance? (5) And how many a prophet We sent among the former peoples, (6) but whenever a prophet came to them, they mocked him, (7) so We destroyed those who were mightier than these; such was the example of the earlier peoples. (8) Yet, if you ask them who created the heavens and the earth, they will answer: 'The Almighty, the Knower created them' (9) (Yea, the same that) has made for you the earth (like a carpet) spread out, and has made for you roads (and channels) therein, in order that ye may find guidance (on the way); (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 who created the species, all of them, and has made for you of ships and animals those which you mount. (12) so that perhaps when you ride them, you will recall the bounties of your Lord and when you establish your control over it you would say, "Glory belongs to Him who has made it subservient to us when we would not have been able to do so ourselves. (13) "And to our Lord, surely, must we turn back!" (14) And they assign to Him a part of His servants; man, to be sure, is clearly ungrateful. (15)
