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. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Quran, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings]. (1) By the Clear Book, (2) We have made it an Arabic reading text so that perhaps you may understand. (3) It is in the Origin of the Book with Us, sublime and wise. (4) So shall We divert the advice away from you, because you are a nation that exceeds the limits? (5) And how many a prophet have We sent among the ancients. (6) no Prophet came to them except that they mocked him, (7) Then We destroyed men stronger (in power) than these, and the example of the ancients has passed away (before them). (8) And if you ask them, “Who has created the heavens and the earth?”, they will surely say, “They are created by the Most Honourable, the All Knowing.” (9) Who hath made for you the earth a bed, and hath made for you paths therein that haply ye may be directed. (10) And Who sent down water from the sky with a proper measure, so We revived a dead city with it; this is how you will be taken out. (11) He Who created all the pairs, and appointed for you ships and cattle whereupon ye ride. (12) in order that you might gain mastery over them, and that, whenever you have mastered them, you might remember your Sustainer's blessings and say: "Limitless in His glory is He who has made [all] this subservient to our use - since [but for Him,] we would not have been able to attain to it. (13) To our Lord we shall all 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)
