THE KORAN'S WARNINGS
Koran spells out stern warnings to nations of disbelievers. The threats and
warnings are a reminder that Allah is all-powerful.
And how many a generation We
destroyed before them, who were mightier than these in prowess so that they
overran the lands! Had they any place of refuge (when the judgement came)?
Are the people of the
townships then secure from the coming of Our wrath upon them as a night-raid
while they sleep?
Or are the people of the
townships then secure from the coming of Our wrath upon them in the daytime
while they play?
Are they then secure from
Allah's scheme? None deemeth himself secure from Allah's scheme save folk that
How many a township have We
destroyed while it was sinful, so that it lieth (to this day) in ruins, and (how
many) a deserted well and lofty tower!
And how many a township did I
suffer long though it was sinful! Then I grasped it. Unto Me is the return.
See they not how many a
generation We destroyed before them, whom We had established in the earth more
firmly than We have established you, and We shed on them abundant showers from
the sky, and made the rivers flow beneath them. Yet We destroyed them for their
sins, and created after them another generation.
