(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)
(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)
109. We sent not before thee (any messengers) save men whom We inspired from among the folk of the townships. Have they not traveled in the land and seen the nature of the consequence for those who were before them? And verily the abode of the Hereafter, for those who ward off (evil), is best. Have ye then no sense?
