Cause of ruin
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast)
(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful)
16, And when We decide to destroy a township We send commandment to its folk who live at ease, and afterward they commit abomination therein, and so the Word (of doom) hath effect for it, and We annihilate it with complete annihilation.
17. And how many generations have We destroyed since Noah! And Allah sufficeth as Knower and Beholder of the sins of His slaves.
16. Wa ‘izaaa ‘aradNaaa ‘an-Nuhlika qaryatan ‘amarNaa mutrafiihaa fa-fasaquu fiihaa fa-haqqa ‘alayhal-qawlu fa-dammar-Naahaa tadmiiraa.
17. Wa kam ‘ahlakNaa minal-quruuni mim- ba’-di Nuuh. Wa kafaa bi-Rabbika bi-zu-nuubi ‘ibaadiHii Khabiiram-Basiiraa.
