How many countries which were tyrant did We demolish (razed). And We raised up (created) after them other people.
So when they feel our (severe) punishment, behold, they flee from it.
Do not flee and come back to the thing (place) that you were spoiled (all you asked for were given to you) and to your dwellings, that you may be questioned (there).
And this did not cease their case (complaint) till We made (kill) them as a mown field.
And We did not create the heaven and the earth and what is between them for a (mere) play (amusement).
If We had wished to make a diversion, We would surely have taken it from Our Presence, if We were going to do (that).
Nay, We cast the truth over the falsehood, so that it devastates it. Then it (falsehood) vanishes. Woe to you for what you describe (of Allah).
And whoever is in the heavens and the earth is His. And those who are in His Presence (those who fulfill the Presence Prayer before Him) are not proud to worship Him, nor do they grow weary.
They glorify (Allah) by night and day, without a break (they are the owners of continuous Dhikr).
If there had been in them (heavens and earth) any gods except Allah, they would both (heavens and earth) have certainly been in a state of mischief. The Lord of Beyond Existence is above what they attribute of Him.
He (Allah) cannot be questioned as to what He does, and they shall be questioned.
Or, have they taken gods besides Him? Say: “Bring forth your proof. This is the Reminder (the Book) of those with me and the reminder of those before me”. But most of them do not know the truth. Therefore they turn aside.
