So when Our command came, We made the highest part [of the city] its lowest and rained upon them stones of layered hard clay, [which were]
Marked from your Lord. And Allah 's punishment is not from the wrongdoers [very] far.
And to Madyan [We sent] their brother Shu'ayb. He said, |O my people, worship Allah ; you have no deity other than Him. And do not decrease from the measure and the scale. Indeed, I see you in prosperity, but indeed, I fear for you the punishment of an all-encompassing Day.
And O my people, give full measure and weight in justice and do not deprive the people of their due and do not commit abuse on the earth, spreading corruption.
What remains [lawful] from Allah is best for you, if you would be believers. But I am not a guardian over you.
They said, |O Shu'ayb, does your prayer command you that we should leave what our fathers worship or not do with our wealth what we please? Indeed, you are the forbearing, the discerning!|
He said, |O my people, have you considered: if I am upon clear evidence from my Lord and He has provided me with a good provision from Him... ? And I do not intend to differ from you in that which I have forbidden you; I only intend reform as much as I am able. And my success is not but through Allah . Upon him I have relied, and to Him I return.
