their Lord and worship Him only, and that there is none who have any power

illustrious people of that nation said: Talking against the traditions and
customs is a token of straying. We have been looking clearly that You (Noah (peace

abuse and tease Him (peace be upon Him). And they began to say to Him: You are
a malicious performer and a liar too. At last, their end (that, what happened
with them) has been described in this verse briefly. More detail will be
discussed in Surah Huud (Hud) and Surah Shu-‘araaa’ (The Poets) Chapters

Lord of this universe has fixed some rules and principles for this world after
its creation, according to which some changes continue to undergo in its

Guidance, then confusion of the heart, fear and dissatisfaction will make you
more frightful. None can save anyone with management or plan against Allah
