Tyrants Will Be Destroyed

In the Holy Quran Allah swt swears by the Dawn that those who are corrupt, tyrannical and oppressive upon people will be destroyed. There were mighty rulers and empires in the past whose likeness is unparalleled in history. The physical strength of A’ad, the genius of Thamud and the power of Firaun were brought to a destructive end. They were criminals who rejected reformers. They thought they were all powerful, transgressing beyond limit. Allah swt destroyed those nations and the destruction was absolute. There is no trace of them now.

89:6 Have you not seen how your Lord has done with Aad,

89:7 Iram comprising the columns,

89:8 The like of which was not created in the lands?

89:9 And (with) Thamud? who carved out the rocks in the valley,

89:10 And (with) Firaawn, (Pharaoh) owning the stakes?

89:11  (They) who tyrannized in the lands,

89:12 So they worked much corruption therein,

89:13 Then your Lord poured on them the scourge of torment?

89:14 Surely your Lord is indeed Ever-Observing.
