And certainly Moses came to Qarun and Pharaoh and Haman with clear arguments (proofs), but they were boastful in the land and they could not outstrip (Our torment).
So We seized all with their sins. Thus We sent hurricane upon some and some were taken by As-Saihah (a terrible sound wave) and some We caused the earth to swallow up and some We drowned. Allah has never tormented them, but they tormented their own souls.
The likeness of those who take friends besides Allah is as the likeness of the spider that takes unto herself a house. And most surely the weakest of the houses is the spider’s house. If they but knew!
Surely Allah knows whatever the things they worship besides Him and He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise (the Owner of Judgment and Wisdom).
And We give these examples for mankind and none understands (comprehends) them but the scholars.
Allah created the heavens and the earth with the truth. Most surely there are proofs in this for the believers.
Recite (read and explain to others) that which has been revealed to you of the Book and keep up the Prayer. Surely the Prayer keeps away from Al-Fahsh (to do what Allah prohibits) and Al-Munkar (to deny what Allah commands). And certainly the Remembrance (the repetition of the Name) of Allah is the greatest, and Allah knows what you do.
