The two gardens on the right and on the left was indeed a Sign (lesson) for Saba (Sheba nation) in their dwelling-place. Eat of the sustenance of your Lord and give thanks to Him! (That is) a fair land. And (Allah is) an Oft-Forgiving Lord!
But they turned aside. So We sent upon them Arim flood, and We converted their two gardens into gardens producing bitter fruit, no fruit and a few of timbers.
Thus We punished them because of their denial. Do We punish any but the disbelievers?
And We made between them and the towns which We had blessed towns near each other, and We apportioned paths to journey therein. (We said) travel through them safely nights and days.
But they said: “Our Lord! Make spaces to be longer between our journeys” and they wronged themselves. So We made them as tales (narrated from generation to generation) and scattered them with an utter scattering. Most surely there are Signs (lessons) in this for every very patient, grateful one.
And certainly Iblis (Lucifer) did prove true his conjecture (he fulfilled his purpose). So they followed (depended on) him (Satan), all except a group of believers.
And he (Lucifer) had no authority (influence) over them that We may know him who believes in the Hereafter (in making his spirit reach Allah while he is living) from him who is in doubt concerning it (We tested them with Lucifer). And your Lord is the Preserver of all things.
Call upon those whom you assert (you consider as gods) besides Allah! They do not possess even a particle’s weight either in the heavens or in the earth, nor have they any partnership in either (in the heavens and in the earth), nor is there for Him (Allah) from among them any helper.
