Surah Adh-Dhariyat 51:41-50

52:41 And [you have the same message] in [what happened to the tribe of] ‘Ad, when We let loose against them that life-destroying wind.

51:42 Which spared nothing of what it came upon, but caused [all of] it to become like bones dead and decayed.

51:43 And in [the story of the tribe of] Thamud, too, when they were told, “You shall enjoy your life for [but] a little while”.

51:44 after they had turned with disdain from their Sustainer’s commandment – whereupon the thunderbolt of punishment overtook them while they were [helplessly] looking on.

51:45 for they were unable even to rise, and could not defend themselves.

51:46 And [thus, too, We destroyed] Noah’s people aforetime, for they were iniquitous folk.

51:47 And it is We who have built the universe with [Our creative] power; and, verily, it is We who are steadily expanding it.

51:48 And the earth have We spread out wide – and how well have We ordered it!

51:49 And in everything have We created opposites so that you might bear in mind [that God alone is One.

51:50 And so, [O Muhammad, say unto them] “Flee I unto God [from all that is false and evil]! Verily, I am a plain warner to you from Him!


The divine scriptures are God’s beacons to the world. Surely God offered His trust to the heavens and the earth, and the hills, but they shrank from bearing it and were afraid of it. And man undertook it.
