Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
Ha. Mim. (1) By this luminous Book. (2) behold, We have made it an Arabic Koran; haply you will understand; (3) And verily it is, in the Original Book before Us, indeed exalted. (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) And how many a prophet did We send to people of olden times! (6) And not a prophet came unto them but him they were wont to mock. (7) Then We destroyed men stronger (in power) than these, and the example of the ancients has passed away (before them). (8) Yet if you were to ask them: “Who created the heavens and the earth?” they will certainly say: “The All-Mighty, the All-Knowing has created them.” (9) It is He who has made the earth for you as a cradle and has made roads therein so that you will perhaps seek guidance. (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 pairs, all of them, and appointed for you ships and cattle such as you ride, (12) In order that you may mount firmly on their backs, and then may remember the Favour of your Lord when you mount thereon, and say: "Glory to Him who has subjected this to us, and we could never have it (by our efforts)." (13) And to our Lord we shall surely return." (14) And they appoint for Him from His bondmen a part! Verily man is an ingrate manifest. (15)
