Have they not travelled throughout the land to see what was the end of those who were ˹destroyed˺ before them? They were far superior in might and ˹richer in˺ monuments throughout the land, but their ˹worldly˺ gains were of no benefit to them.When their messengers came to them with clear proofs, they were prideful in whatever ˹worldly˺ knowledge they had, and were ˹ultimately˺ overwhelmed by what they used to ridicule.When they saw Our punishment, they cried, “˹Now˺ we believe in Allah alone and reject what we had been associating with Him!”But their faith was of no benefit to them when they saw Our torment. This has ˹always˺ been Allah’s way ˹of dealing˺ with His ˹wicked˺ servants. Then and there the disbelievers were in ˹total˺ loss.

أَفَلَمْ يَسِيرُوا۟ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ فَيَنظُرُوا۟ كَيْفَ كَانَ عَقِبَةُ ٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِمْۚ كَانُوٓا۟ أَكْثَرَ مِنْهُمْ وَأَشَدَّ قُوَّةًۭ وَءَاثَارًۭا فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ فَمَآ أَغْنَىٰ عَنْهُم مَّا كَانُوا۟ يَكْسِبُونَ ‎
‏فَلَمَّا جَآءَتْهُمْ رُسُلُهُم بِٱلْبَيِّنَتِ فَرِحُوا۟ بِمَا عِندَهُم مِّنَ ٱلْعِلْمِ وَحَاقَ بِهِم مَّا كَانُوا۟ بِهِۦ يَسْتَهْزِءُونَ ‎
‏فَلَمَّا رَأَوْا۟ بَأْسَنَا قَالُوٓا۟ ءَامَنَّا بِٱللَّهِ وَحْدَهُۥ وَكَفَرْنَا بِمَا كُنَّا بِهِۦ مُشْرِكِينَ ‎
‏فَلَمْ يَكُ يَنفَعُهُمْ إِيمَنُهُمْ لَمَّا رَأَوْا۟ بَأْسَنَاۖ سُنَّتَ ٱللَّهِ ٱلَّتِى قَدْ خَلَتْ فِى عِبَادِهِۖۦ وَخَسِرَ هُنَالِكَ ٱلْكَفِرُونَ
There are seven Surahs (al-Mu’min, HaMim al-Sajdah, al-Shura, al-Zukhruf, al-Dukhan, al-Jathiyah, al-Ahqaf) that begin with the word “HaMim”. Thus these seven Surahs are also called “al-Hawamim”. These are Surahs of Da’wah, inviting people to believe in Allah, take advantage of the mercy of Allah. There is solace and comfort in these Surahs for the Believers who were persecuted because of their faith and they are given the good news that the truth will prevail.
کیا ان لوگوں نے زمین میں سیر نہیں کی تاکہ دیکھتے جو لوگ ان سے پہلے تھے ان کا انجام کیسا ہوا۔ (حالانکہ) وہ ان سے کہیں زیادہ طاقتور اور زمین میں نشانات (بنانے) کے اعتبار سے بہت بڑھ کر تھے۔ تو جو کچھ وہ کرتے تھے وہ ان کے کچھ کام نہ آیا 
اور جب ان کے پیغمبر ان کے پاس کھلی نشانیاں لے کر آئے تو جو علم (اپنے خیال میں) ان کے پاس تھا اس پر اترانے لگے اور جس چیز سے تمسخر کیا کرتے تھے اس نے ان کو آ گھیرا 
پھر جب انہوں نے ہمارا عذاب دیکھ لیا تو کہنے لگے کہ ہم خدائے واحد پر ایمان لائے اور جس چیز کو اس کے ساتھ شریک بناتے تھے اس سے نامعتقد ہوئے 
لیکن جب وہ ہمارا عذاب دیکھ چکے (اس وقت) ان کے ایمان نے ان کو کچھ بھی فائدہ نہ دیا۔ (یہ) خدا کی عادت (ہے) جو اس کے بندوں (کے بارے) میں چلی آتی ہے۔ اور وہاں کافر گھاٹے میں پڑ گئے
The Qur’an is from Allah who is both Merciful and Severe in Punishment. Warnings to the non-believers and comfort to the believers.
The failure of the disbelievers. The Day of Judgment belongs to Allah.
A lesson from the history of Prophet Moses -peace be upon him. Even the mighty Pharaoh and his army could not help him against the wrath of Allah.
A Believer from the Pharaoh’s people declared his faith. His conversation with his people.
The false leaders will take their people to hell.
Allah helps the Prophets and their followers.
The Glory of Allah. Allah has power over life and death.
The fate of the un-believers will be bad.
Take lessons from the past history. After the judgment comes, repentance makes no difference.
