Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
Ha-Meem. (Alphabets of the Arabic language Allah, and to whomever He reveals, know their precise meanings.) (1) By the Book that makes things clear, (2) We have indeed sent it as a Qur’an in the Arabic language, so that you may understand. (3) It is inscribed in the original Book (of Books) with Us, sublime, dispenser of (all) laws. (4) Shall We utterly ignore you because ye are a wanton folk? (5) And how many a prophet We sent among the former peoples, (6) And whenever any Prophet came to them, they only mocked at him. (7) so We destroyed those who were mightier than these; such was the example of the earlier peoples. (8) If thou wert to question them, 'Who created the heavens and the earth?' They would be sure to reply, 'they were created by (Him), the Exalted in Power, Full of Knowledge';- (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) Who sent down water in due measure from the sky, then quickened a region that was dead -- So shall We bring you 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 you can sit upon their backs and then remember the Favors of your Lord and say: 'Exaltations to Him who has subjected these to us otherwise, we ourselves were not capable of it, (13) And lo! unto our Lord we surely are returning. (14) But they have attributed to Him from His servants a portion. Indeed, man is clearly ungrateful. (15)
