[Zariyat 51:31] Said Ibrahim, “What is your task, O the sent angels?”

[Zariyat 51:32] They said, “We have been sent towards a guilty nation.”

[Zariyat 51:33] “To throw upon them stones of baked clay.”

[Zariyat 51:34] “That are kept marked, with your Lord, for the transgressors.”

[Zariyat 51:35] So We removed the people who had faith, from that town.

[Zariyat 51:36] We therefore found just one house over there that was Muslim.

[Zariyat 51:37] And We kept a sign remaining in it, for those who fear the painful punishment.

[Zariyat 51:38] And in Moosa, when We sent him with a clear proof towards Firaun.

[Zariyat 51:39] In response, he turned away along with his army and said, “He is a magician or a madman.”

[Zariyat 51:40] We therefore seized him and his army and threw them into the sea, while he was blaming himself.

[Zariyat 51:41] And in the tribe of A’ad, when we sent a dry windstorm upon them.

[Zariyat 51:42] It left out nothing in its path, but which it split up into fragments.

[Zariyat 51:43] And in the tribe of Thamud when it was told to them, “Enjoy for a while.”

[Zariyat 51:44] In response they rebelled against their Lord’s command, so the thunderbolt seized them whilst they were watching.

[Zariyat 51:45] So they were neither able to stand up, nor were they able to take revenge.

[Zariyat 51:46] And before them, We destroyed the people of Nooh; they were indeed a sinning nation.

Section 3

[Zariyat 51:47] And We have built the heaven with hands (the Divine Power), and it is We Who give the expanse.

[Zariyat 51:48] And We made the earth a base, so how well do We lay out!

[Zariyat 51:49] And We created all things in pairs, so that you may ponder.

[Zariyat 51:50] “Therefore rush towards Allah; indeed I am from Him, a clear Herald of Warning towards you.”

[Zariyat 51:51] “And do not appoint other deities along with Allah; indeed I am from Him, a clear Herald of Warning towards you.”
