Surah Ash-Shu’ara’: 26:121-130

26:121 In this [story], behold, there is a message [unto men], even though most of them will not believe [in it].

26:122 But, verily, thy Sustainer – He alone – is Almighty, a Dispenser of Grace!

26:123 [And the tribe of] ‘Ad gave the lie to [one of God’s] message-bearers. 

26:124 When their brother Hud said unto them “Will you not be conscious of God?

26:125 Behold, I am an apostle [sent by Him] to you, [and therefore] worthy of your trust. 

26:126 Be, then, conscious of God, and pay heed unto me!

26:127 And no reward whatever do I ask of you for it, my reward rests with none but the Sustainer of all the worlds.

26:128 Will you, in your wanton folly, build [idolatrous] altars on every height.

26:129 And make for yourselves mighty castles, [hoping] that you might become immortal?

26:130 And will you [always], whenever you lay hand [on others], lay hand [on them] cruelly, without any restraint?


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.
