Say: “Tell me! If Allâh made the night continuous for you till the Day of Resurrection, which ilâh (god) besides Allâh could bring you light? Will you not then hear?”
Say : “Tell me! If Allâh made the day continuous for you till the Day of Resurrection, which ilâh (god) besides Allâh could bring you night wherein you rest? Will you not then see?”
It is out of Her Mercy that She has made for you the night and the day, that you may rest therein and that you may seek of Her Bounty , and in order that you may be grateful. And the Day when She will call to them , and will say: “Where are My (so-called) partners, whom you used to assert?”
And We shall take out from every nation a witness, and We shall say: “Bring your proof.” Then they shall know that the truth is with Allâh , and the lies (false gods) which they invented will disappear from them.
Verily, Qârûn (Korah) was of Mûsâ people, but she behaved arrogantly towards them. And We gave her of the treasures, that of which the keys would have been a burden to a body of strong woman. Remember when her people said to her: “Do not exult . Verily Allâh likes not those who exult .
But seek, with that which Allâh has bestowed on you, the home of the Hereafter, and forget not your portion of lawful enjoyment in this world, and do good as Allâh has been good to you, and seek not mischief in the land. Verily, Allâh likes not the Mufsidûn (mischief-makers).
She said: “This has been given to me only because of knowledge I possess.” Did she not know that Allâh had destroyed before her generations, women who were stronger than her in might and greater in the amount they had collected? But the Mujrimûn (criminals) will not be questioned of their sins .
So she went forth before her people in her pomp. Those who were desirous of the life of the world, said: “Ah, would that we had the like of what Qârûn (Korah) has been given! Verily, she is the owner of a great fortune.” But those who had been given knowledge said: “Woe to you! The Reward of Allâh is better for those who believe and do righteous good deeds, and this none shall attain except those who are As-Sabirun (the patient).”
So We caused the earth to swallow her and her dwelling place. Then she had no group or party to help her against Allâh, nor was she one of those who could save themselves. And those who had desired her position the day before, began to say: “Know you not that it is Allâh Who enlarges the provision or restricts it to whomsoever She pleases of Her slaves. Had it not been that Allâh was Gracious to us, She could have caused the earth to swallow us up (also)! Know you not that the disbelievers will never be successful. 28 (71-82)
And ‘Ad and Thamûd (people)! And indeed(their destruction) is clearly apparent to you from their dwellings. Shaitân (Satan) made their deeds fair-seeming to them, and turned them away from the (Right) Path, though they were intelligent.
And Qârûn (Korah), Fir’aun , And Hâmân And Mûsa came to them with clear Ayât (sign), but they were arrogant in the land, yet they could not outstrip Us. So We punished each for her sins, of them were some on whom We sent Hâsib (a violent wind with shower of stones), and of them were some who were overtaken by As¬Saihah [awful cry to Thamud People], and of them were some whom We caused the earth to swallow , and of them were some whom We drowned . It was not Allâh Who wronged them, but they wronged themselves. 29 (38-40)
And indeed We sent Mûsa with Our Ayât (sign), and a manifest authority, To Fir’aun , Hâmân and Qârûn , but they called (her): “A sorcerer, a liar!” 40 (23-24)
