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) Lo! We have appointed it a Lecture, in Arabic that haply ye may understand. (3) Truly, it is inscribed in the Original Book, in Our keeping; it is sublime and full of wisdom. (4) Shall We turn away the Remembrance from you because you are a sinful nation? (5) How many a Prophet did We send to the ancients, (6) but whenever a prophet came to them, they mocked him, (7) So We destroyed (them)- stronger in power than these;- and (thus) has passed on the Parable of the peoples of old. (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) (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) And He Who sends down water from the cloud according to a measure, then We raise to life thereby a dead country, even thus shall you be brought forth; (11) And who created the species, all of them, and has made for you of ships and animals those which you mount. (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 surely to our Lord we must return. (14) The pagans have considered some of His servants as His children. There is no doubt that the human being is simply ungrateful. (15)
