We surely sent a messenger to every community, saying, “Worship Allah and shun false gods.” But some of them were guided by Allah, while others were destined to stray. So travel throughout the land and see the fate of the deniers!
— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
And We certainly sent into every nation a messenger, [saying], "Worship Allah and avoid ṭāghūt."1 And among them were those whom Allah guided, and among them were those upon whom error was [deservedly] decreed. So proceed [i.e., travel] through the earth and observe how was the end of the deniers.
