Quran Chapter 11-67 & 68 (Pt-12, Stg-3) (L-1395) – درس قرآن
Morning found Thamud prostrate in their houses
Surah Huud (Hud) – 11
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
وَأَخَذَ ٱلَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا۟ ٱلصَّيْحَةُ فَأَصْبَحُوا۟ فِى دِيَٰرِهِمْ جَٰثِمِينَ 67
كَأَن لَّمْ يَغْنَوْا۟ فِيهَآ أَلَآ إِنَّ ثَمُودَا۟ كَفَرُوا۟ رَبَّهُمْ أَلَا بُعْدًا لِّثَمُودَ (68
|67. And the (awful) Cry overtook those who did wrong, so that morning found them prostrate in their dwellings-
68. As though that had not dwelt there. Beware! Thamud disbelieved in their Lord. Beware! A far removal for Thamud!
|67. Wa ‘akhazal-laziina zalamus-Sayhatu fa-‘asbahuu fii di-yaarihim jaasi-miina-
68. Ka-‘allam yagnaw fiihaa. ‘Alaaa ‘inna Samuuda kafa-ruu Rabba-hum. ‘Alaa bu’-dal-li-Samuud. (Section 7)
Promises and denunciations by Allah Almighty are eternal and an epithet of the Deity. Surely, that will happen whichever He has described in His Scripture and whichever His Messengers (peace be upon them) have spoken. But a time has been fixed for it. When such time comes; then there is no delay and whatsoever is required to be, that; it is immediately.
The folk of Thamud had built their dwellings by cutting great rocks of the mountain, most probably with this thought that they would remain safe from the issue of dust-storms. They were aware that the mountains do not move by dust-storms, but they did not know that a way of ruining the mountains exists also. Jerks of earthquakes began when they were sleeping at night and besides it, a terrible rumbling noise and a harsh thunder was born.
Consequent, that earthquake threw them down from their beds and their gall-bladders were cracked by thundering sound. In the morning, they were found prostrate on the earth. And then it became all quiet and silent everywhere. And it seemed that this land was uninhabited since long. It was the tribe of Thamud which did not know their Lord. And at last, they were removed from the world. Allah Almighty has caused to hear their story for the purpose that we should be careful and become conscious before arrival of misfortune from Allah Almighty. Beware! A far removal for Thamud.
