And when they were cast into a narrow place thereof, tied together, they asked for destruction (to disappear).

Therefore (what you worshipped aside from Allah) belied you in what you have said. So you cannot avert (the torment) nor obtain help. And whoever among you becomes unjust, We will make him taste a great torment.
And We have not sent before you any Messengers but they most surely ate food and went about in the markets. And We have made some of you a mischief (trial) for others to see ‘if you bear patiently’! And your Lord is All-Seeing.
