Our Motto : 'In-Allah-ha-Ma'anaa' ("Be not grieved, for surely Allah is with us." - The Holy Quran 9:40). We find spiritual strength, courage and comfort, in the times of trials and  hardships, from this Divine Quranic revelation that descended upon the pure heart of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him), so as to console and compose him during one of the most perilous moments of his life. <Please click the 'Our Motto' link on our homepage for more details>

Section/Ruku 2 [Verses 24 to 46]: The fate of previous nations:
Chapter 51: (Al-Dhariyat: The Scatterers)
(Revealed at Makkah: 3 sections; 60 verses)

1. Translation:

24 Has the story of Abraham’s honoured guests reached thee?
a

25 When they came to him, they said: Peace! Peace! said he. Strangers!

26 Then he turned aside to his family and brought a fat calf.

27 So he placed it before them. He said: Will you not eat?

28 So he conceived a fear of them. They said: Fear not. And they gave him the good news of a boy possessing knowledge.

29 Then his wife came up in grief, and she smote her face and said: A barren old woman!

30 They said: Thus says thy Lord. Surely He is the Wise, the Knowing.

Part 27

31 He said: what is your errand, O messengers!

32 They said: We have been sent to a guilty people

33 That we may send upon them stones of clay,

34 Marked from thy Lord for the prodigal.a

35 Then We brought forth such believers as were there.

36 And We found there but a (single) house of Muslims.a

37 And We left therein a sign for those who fear the painful chastisement.

38 And in Moses, when We sent him to Pharaoh with clear authority.

39 But he turned away on account of his might and said: An enchanter or a madman!

40 So We seized him and his hosts and hurled them into the sea, and he was blameable.

41 And in ‘Ad, when We sent upon them the destructive wind.

42 It spared naught that it came against, but it made it like ashes.

43 And in Thamud, when it was said to them: Enjoy yourselves for a while.

44 But they revolted against the commandment of their Lord, so the punishment overtook them, while they saw.a

45 So they were unable to rise up, nor could they defend themselves;

46 And the people of Noah before. Surely they were a transgressing people.

 2. Commentary:

24a. See 11:69a, 70a. [Back to verse 24]

34a. For the punishment sent on Lot’s people, see 7:84a. The stones were marked, i.e., they were destined for them. [Back to verse 34]

36a. It is said to be the house of Lot himself. A Muslim is one who submits himself to God, and in this sense all prophets and their righteous followers were Muslims. [Back to verse 36]

44a. See 7:78a; it was an earthquake. [Back to verse 44]
