‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.

 (I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)


(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)


وَلَقَدْ ءَاتَيْنَا مُوسَى ٱلْكِتَٰبَ وَجَعَلْنَا مَعَهُۥٓ أَخَاهُ هَٰرُونَ وَزِيرًا 35  فَقُلْنَا ٱذْهَبَآ إِلَى ٱلْقَوْمِ ٱلَّذِينَ كَذَّبُوا۟ بِـَٔايَٰتِنَافَدَمَّرْنَٰهُمْ تَدْمِيرًا 36

35.  And We verily gave Moses the Scripture and placed with him his brother Aaron as henchman.


36.  Then We said: Go together unto the folk who have denied Our Revelations. Then We destroyed them, a complete destruction.

35.  Wa  laqad  ‘aatayNaa  Muusal-Kitaaba  wa  ja-‘alNaa  ma-‘ahuuu  ‘akhaahu  Haaruuna  Waziiraa.


36.  FaqulNaz-habaaa  ‘ilal-qawmil-laziina  kazzabuu  bi-‘AayaatiNaa.  Fadammar-Naahum  tad-miiraa.



Tad-miiran – (to destroy, to annihilate), origin of this word is damara. Damaar means “destruction”. The word tadmiiran is past tense from DammarNaa, which means “to annihilate”.


It is commanded: Several human beings before these people rebelled. Satan deceived them and they forgot Allaah Almighty entirely, established their separate groups and who from them were powerful; they appointed themselves chieftains of those groups, began to press down the weak and subordinate people, and they began to take work from them like animals. From the same people, a group of Egyptians was established, chieftain of which was called Pharaoh. He was such a rebellious that he claimed of his godhead and used to get adored from the people of his folk. And he had oppressed the Children of Israel who had come from outside and settled in his country.


It is commanded: We appointed Moses as Our Messenger (peace be upon him), bestowed upon him Our Scripture, appointed his brother Aaron as a Prophet, his helper and follower and sent them (peace be upon them) unto Pharaoh and his folk. Their first duty was to make the tribe of Pharaoh to understand that they should give up insurrection and obey the Commandments of Allaah Almighty. But those people denied. At last We annihilated that folk entirely.
