They were seized by an Awful Cry

Surah Huud (Hud) – 11


In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

وَلَمَّا جَآءَ أَمْرُنَا نَجَّيْنَا شُعَيْبًا وَٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ مَعَهُۥ بِرَحْمَةٍ مِّنَّا وَأَخَذَتِ ٱلَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا۟ ٱلصَّيْحَةُ فَأَصْبَحُوا۟ فِىدِيَٰرِهِمْ جَٰثِمِينَ (94

كَأَن لَّمْ يَغْنَوْا۟ فِيهَآ أَلَا بُعْدًا لِّمَدْيَنَ كَمَا بَعِدَتْ ثَمُودُ 95

94.  And when Our commandment came to pass We saved Shu’eyb and those who believed with him by a Mercy from Us, and the (Awful) Cry seized those who did injustice, and morning found them prostrate in their dwellings-

95.  As though they had not dwelt their. Beware! A far removal for Midian, even as Thamud had been removed afar!

94.  Wa  lammaa  jaaa-‘a  ‘amru-Naa  naj-jayNaa  Shu-‘aybanw-walla-ziina  ‘aamanuu  ma-‘ahuu  bi-Rahmatim-minnaa,  wa  ‘akha-zatil-laziina  zalamus-Say-hatu  fa-‘asbahuu  fii  di-yaari-him  jaasi-miina.


95.  Ka-‘allam  yag-naw  fiihaa.  ‘Alaa  bu’dal-li-Madyana  kamaa ba-‘idat  Samuud.  (Section 9)


It suits to the mankind that he should remain standing before Allah Almighty submissively and earnestly. No-one can reach success by opposing Him.

In this verse, the end of the people of Midian has been explained. They disregarded Prophet of Allah Almighty Shu’eyb (peace be upon him), replied him harshly, afflicted him, terrified and threatened him. It was the result at last, it has been mentioned in this verse, that they were ruined by thunder. At another place it has been described that an earthquake caught them. When they came out being confused and senseless due to heat, a cloud came and spread over their heads. They considered that there would be coldness in it, but there was furious heat below the cloud. They all befell being deprived of sensibility and died. Their arrogances, absurdities and abusiveness were just like the people of Thamud, so the doom came on them as on the people of Thamud. And at last, they were addressed: Be ruined you also like Thamud and beware! Begone from the Mercy of Allah Almighty and a far removal for you, even as Thamud had been removed afar!

Our Lord! Guide us with Your grace for doing good works, make us Your most obedient and keep us under Your Shelter from doom on the Doomsday!
