The eminent of those who were arrogant among his people said: “We will most certainly drive you out, O Shu’ayb, and (also) those who believe with you (reaching Allah before death), from our land or you shall come back to our nation (religion)”. (Shu’ayb) said: “Even though we dislike it”?
Indeed we shall have forged a lie against Allah if we go back to your nation (religion) after Allah has delivered us from it. And it does not befit us that we should go back to it, except if Allah our Lord should will. Our Lord encompasses all things with His Knowledge. In Allah we put our trust. Our Lord, separate between us and our people with truth. And You are the Best of the conquerors.
And the eminent of those who disbelieved from among his people said: If you follow (depend on) Shu’ayb, You shall then most surely be losers (be of those who make their souls fall into loss).
So a severe earthquake seized them. Upon that they remained on their knees in their own land.
Those who called Shu’ayb a liar were as though they had never dwelt therein. Those who called Shu’ayb a liar, they were the losers (they caused their souls to fall into loss, husrân).
So (Shu’ayb) turned away from them and said: “Certainly I delivered to you the messages of my Lord and I gave you good advice. How shall I then be sorry for a disbelieving people”?
And We did not send a Prophet in a town but We overtook its people with distress and affliction in order that they might beg earnestly.
Then We changed the evil for the good. When they increased in number and in wealth they said: “Severe efficiency and abundance also touched Our fathers (they did not think it was from Allah and did not learn a lesson)”. So We seized them suddenly while they were unaware (when they were conscious of it).
