Those who rejected Shu’aib were ˹wiped out˺ as if they had never lived there. Those who rejected Shu’aib were the true losers.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Those who denied Shuʿayb - it was as though they had never resided there. Those who denied Shuʿayb - it was they who were the losers.

He turned away from them, saying, “O my people! Indeed, I have delivered to you the messages of my Lord and gave you ˹sincere˺ advice. How can I then grieve for those who chose to disbelieve?”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And he [i.e., Shuʿayb] turned away from them and said, "O my people, I had certainly conveyed to you the messages of my Lord and advised you, so how could I grieve for a disbelieving people?"

Whenever We sent a prophet to a society, We afflicted its ˹disbelieving˺ people with suffering and adversity, so perhaps they would be humbled.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And We sent to no city a prophet [who was denied] except that We seized its people with poverty and hardship that they might humble themselves [to Allah].

— Saheeh International

Then We changed their adversity to prosperity until they flourished and argued ˹falsely˺, “Our forefathers ˹too˺ had been visited by adversity and prosperity.”1 So We seized them by surprise, while they were unaware.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Then We exchanged in place of the bad [condition], good, until they increased [and prospered] and said, "Our fathers [also] were touched with hardship and ease."1 So We seized them suddenly while they did not perceive.2

— Saheeh International

Had the people of those societies been faithful and mindful ˹of Allah˺, We would have overwhelmed them with blessings from heaven and earth. But they disbelieved, so We seized them for what they used to commit.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And if only the people of the cities had believed and feared Allah, We would have opened [i.e., bestowed] upon them blessings from the heaven and the earth; but they denied [the messengers], so We seized them for what they were earning.1

— Saheeh International

Did the people of those societies feel secure that Our punishment would not come upon them by night while they were asleep?

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Then, did the people of the cities feel secure from Our punishment coming to them at night while they were asleep?

— Saheeh International

Or did they feel secure that Our punishment would not come upon them by day while they were at play?

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Or did the people of the cities feel secure from Our punishment coming to them in the morning while they were at play?1

— Saheeh International

Did they feel secure against Allah’s planning? None would feel secure from Allah’s planning except the losers.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Then, did they feel secure from the plan of Allah? But no one feels secure from the plan of Allah except the losing people.

— Saheeh International

Is it not clear to those who take over the land after ˹the destruction of˺ its former residents that—if We will—We can punish them ˹too˺ for their sins and seal their hearts so they will not hear ˹the truth˺?

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Has it not become clear to those who inherited the earth after its [previous] people that if We willed, We could afflict them for their sins? But We seal over their hearts so they do not hear.1

— Saheeh International

We have narrated to you ˹O Prophet˺ some of the stories of those societies. Surely, their messengers came to them with clear proofs, but still they would not believe in what they had already denied. This is how Allah seals the hearts of the disbelievers.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Those cities - We relate to you, [O Muḥammad], some of their news. And certainly did their messengers come to them with clear proofs, but they were not to believe in that which they had denied before.1 Thus does Allah seal over the hearts of the disbelievers.

— Saheeh International

We did not find most of them true to their covenant. Rather, We found most of them truly rebellious.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And We did not find for most of them any covenant;1 but indeed, We found most of them defiantly disobedient.
