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) By the Clear Book; (2) We have made it an Arabic reading text so that perhaps you may understand. (3) Indeed it is transcribed in the Original Book with Us; sublime and full of wisdom. (4) Then should We turn the message away, disregarding you, because you are a transgressing people? (5) How many a prophet did We send among the men of old! (6) And never came there a Prophet to them but they used to mock at him. (7) So We destroyed far more powerful (nations) than they. The example of earlier people is there. (8) If you ask them, "Who has created the heavens and the earth?", they will surely answer, "The Almighty, the All Knowing One has 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) He Who sent down water from the sky in a determined measure, and thereby We revived a dead land: likewise will you be raised up (from the earth) -- (11) And Who has created all the pairs and has appointed for you ships and cattle on which you ride, (12) That you may settle yourselves upon their backs and then remember the favor of your Lord when you have settled upon them and say. "Exalted is He who has subjected this to us, and we could not have [otherwise] subdued it. (13) And indeed we, to our Lord, will [surely] return." (14) And they allot to Him a portion of His bondmen! Lo! man is verily a mere ingrate. (15)
