So when Our Commandment came, We turned (that city) upside down (We caused it to move up and down), rained on them stones of baked clay, in a well-arranged manner one after another.
Marked from your Lord and it is not far off from the wrong-doers.
And to the Madyan (Midian) people their brother Shu’aib said: “O my people! Be servants to Allah, you have no god other than He. Do not give short measure and weight. Surely I see you in prosperity and surely I fear for you the torment of an all-encompassing day”.
And, O my People! Give full measure and weight in justice! Do not defraud the men their things (rights), and do not act corruptly in the land, making mischief.
The remainder of Allah (the profit that the commerce brings, the lawful profit) is better for you if you are believers. And I am not a guardian over you.
They said: “O Shu’aib! Does your prayer command you that we should forsake what our fathers worshipped or that we should not do what we please with regard to our property? Truly, you are gentle, the mature one (the one who reached to the Spiritual maturity-Irshad)”.
(Shu’aib) said: “Is this your opinion even if I am upon a clear proof from my Lord and He has given me a goodly sustenance from Himself? I do not intend to oppose you in that which I have forbidden you. I desire nothing but ameliorate so far as I am able. And my success can only come from Allah. Upon him I have relied, and to Him I turned to”.
