A curse for the tribe of Aad

Surah Huud (Hud) – 11


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

   وَتِلْكَ عَادٌ جَحَدُوا۟ بِـَٔايَٰتِ رَبِّهِمْ وَعَصَوْا۟ رُسُلَهُۥوَٱتَّبَعُوٓا۟ أَمْرَ كُلِّ جَبَّارٍ عَنِيدٍ (59)

  وَأُتْبِعُوا۟ فِى هَٰذِهِ ٱلدُّنْيَا لَعْنَةً وَيَوْمَ ٱلْقِيَٰمَةِ أَلَآ إِنَّ عَادًا كَفَرُوا۟ رَبَّهُمْ أَلَا بُعْدًا لِّعَادٍ قَوْمِ هُودٍ (60)

59.  And such were ‘Aad, they denied the Revelations of their Lord and flouted His Messengers and followed the command of every froward potentate.


60.  And a curse was made to follow them in the world and on the Day of Resurrection. Beware! ‘Aad disbelieved in their Lord. Beware! A far removal for ‘Aad, the folk of Huud.

59.  Wa  tilka  ‘Aadun,  jaha-duu  bi- ‘Aayaati-  Rabbi-him  wa  ‘asaw  Rusula-Huu  wattaba-‘uuu  ‘amra  kulli  jabbaarin  ‘aniid.


60.  Wa  ‘utbi-‘uu  fii  haazihid-dunyaa  la’-natanw-wa  Yaw-mal-Qi-yaamah.  ‘Alaaa  ‘inna  ‘Aadan-  Kafaruu  Rabba-hum.  ‘Alaa  bu’-dal-li- ‘Aadin-  Qaw-mi-  Huud.         




They never reach the prosperity; who turn away from The Cherisher of the world (Allah Almighty). If the mankind does not know Him during his present life, then his all good deeds are useless. Behold the nation of Aad! The ruins of their towns have been lying before you. They had much pride on their physical strength and used to give self airs to their senses. They used to do all works but deny their Lord and the Lord of the entire universe. They did neither care the Sayings of the Messengers (peace be upon them) and nor obey Their commands. However, they used to honor the strong, proud, froward and the oppressive people. They used to treat such people most cordially.


Eventually, their end was worst. Allah Almighty overwhelmed them by the torment of dust-storm. Their entire boasting was disgraced. Every thing was kept back but they fell on the ground by turning to and fro with pressure of the wind-storm; after flying like straws of the grass. The pressure of the wind broke their bodies into pieces. They were removed away from the Mercy of Allah Almighty and were hunted by His wrath. They had to know their Lord and bow before Him, but they walked affectedly. Allah Almighty ordered: Go away, be repelled from the world and be deprived of the Paradise also in the Hereafter.
