Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
Ha-Mim (1) I swear by the Book that makes things clear: (2) We verily, have made it a Quran in Arabic, that you may be able to understand (its meanings and its admonitions). (3) And the Qur’an is undoubtedly, in the Original Book with Us, surely the exalted, 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 did We send to people of olden times! (6) And there came not to them a prophet but they mocked at him. (7) so We destroyed those who were mightier in courage than they. And the example of the ancients has passed away. (8) If you ask them: "Who created the heavens and the earth?" they will answer: "The Mighty and All-knowing created them," (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 sends down water (rain) from the sky in due measure. Then We revive a dead land therewith, and even so you will be brought forth (from the dead), (11) It is He who has created everything in pairs and the ships and cattle for you to 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) Hence, verily, it is unto Him that we must always turn." (14) Yet they assign to some of His slaves a share with Him (by pretending that He has children, and considering them as equals or co-partners in worship with Him). Verily, man is indeed a manifest ingrate! (15)
