Lesson # 894 - Morning found the people of Shu-aib prostrate
Lesson # 894 from the Noble Quran
Morning found the people of Shu-aib prostrate
Surah ‘A’-RAAF(The Heights) – Chapter – 7)
Stage – 2, Verses – 91 to 93 of 206, Section –
11 of 24 (Part - 9)
In the name ofAllah, the Beneficent, the
the earthquake seized them and morning found them prostrate in their dwelling-place.
Those who denied Shu-aib
became as though they had not dwelt there; those who denied Shu-aib, they were the losers.
he turned from them and said: O my people! I delivered my Lord’s messages
unto you and gave you good advice; then how can I sorrow for a people that

wa qaala yaa-qawmi laqad ‘ablag-tukum risaa-laati

– (I sorrow).
Prophet Shu-aib (blessing on Him) prayed from
Allah Almighty: “Our Lord! Decide with truth between us and our folk, for Thou
art the Best of those who make decision”. These people have been inclined to molest
us. On the other side, there is no protecting friend and supporter of My
companions but You only.
commanded that at last; the earthquake seized those unmindful and arrogant
people and they fell prostrate in their dwelling-places and could not get up
again. Those people, who were contending against Prophet Shu-aib (blessing on Him) with great airs, they were desirous of; either
to drive Him and His believers out or their death. And they used to disregard
everyone in front of their strength and power. Due to strong shocks of
earthquakes, they were destroyed totally.
prior to this mishap, the fastidious and haughty chieftains of the tribe of Prophet
Shu-aib (blessing on Him) were
showing their power and going to convince their people: You should not obey the
command of Prophet Shu-aib (blessing
on Him), otherwise; you will be the losers.
the earthquake ruined the nation of Prophet Shu-aib
(blessing on Him)}, the world beheld that they were thinking wrong. They lose
their wealth and despair of life. As soon as Prophet Shu-aib (blessing on Him) felt that the wrath of God Almighty is
near to appear, He (blessing on Him) left that place along with His believers,
and at the time of leaving the township, He (blessing on Him) was saying: O My
nation! I delivered the Commands of My Lord unto you. I was your well-wisher.
Alas! You did never listen to Me. What can I do now for you? How can I sorrow
for such obstinate and perverse infidel nation, who rejected the Truth?
