So leave Me the people who belied this Word. We soon will lead them slowly (to the torment) from whence they do not perceive.
Or is it that you ask them a wage? So that they are heavily burdened with debt?
Or that the Unseen (the unknown worlds) is near them, so that they write down?
So wait patiently for the Judgment of your Lord, and be not like the owner of the Fish (like Jonah). He had cried out (to his Lord) while he was in deep sorrow.
Had not a Blessing from his Lord reached him, he would certainly have been cast down upon the naked ground while he was blamed.
And those who deny almost knock you down to the ground with their eyes when they hear the Dhikr (the Qur’ân) and they say: “Most surely he is indeed mad”.
And it (the Qur’an) is nothing else but a Dhikr (Reminder) for the Worlds.
And what is it that lets you know what the Reality (Inevitable) is?
(The nation of) Thamûd and Âd belied the “Qâri’ah” (the Dreadful Event).
But therefore Thamûd (nation) was destroyed by an excessive (severe) torment.
And but Âd (nation) however (too) was destroyed by an extremely freezing, excessively blowing fierce storm.
(Allah) assigned it (the storm) upon them seven nights and eight days continuously. After that you see that nation therein lying on ground overthrown as if they were hollow trunks of palm-trees.
So are there any remains belonging to them, do you see any?
