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, Meem. (1) By the manifest Book (that makes things clear, i.e. this Quran). (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) Shall We turn away the Remembrance from you, for that you are a prodigal people? (5) How many a prophet did We send among the men of old! (6) but not a Prophet came to them, without they mocked at him; (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) Who has made the earth a cradle for you and made thereon paths for you so that, hopefully, you may find your way (10) And Who sendeth down from the heaven water in measure; then We quicken a dead land therewith: even so ye shall be brought forth. (11) That has created pairs in all things, and has made for you ships and cattle on which ye ride, (12) So that when you sit astride of them and think of the bounties of your Lord, you may say: "All glory to Him who subjugated these for us. We were incapable of doing so. (13) And indeed we, to our Lord, will [surely] 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)
