And He destroyed the first ˹people of˺ ’Ȃd, and ˹then˺ Thamûd, sparing no one.And before ˹that He destroyed˺ the people of Noah, who were truly far worse in wrongdoing and transgression.And ˹it was˺ He ˹Who˺ turned the cities ˹of Sodom and Gomorrah˺ upside down.How overwhelming was what covered ˹them˺!Now, which of your Lord’s favours will you dispute?Quran 53:50~55

  ‏وَثَمُودَا۟ فَمَآ أَبْقَىٰ ‎

  ‏وَقَوْمَ نُوحٍۢ مِّن قَبْلُ ۖ 
إِنَّهُمْ كَانُوا۟ هُمْ أَظْلَمَ وَأَطْغَىٰ ‎
  ‏وَٱلْمُؤْتَفِكَةَ أَهْوَىٰ ‎

  ‏فَغَشَّىٰهَا مَا غَشَّىٰ ‎

  ‏فَبِأَىِّ ءَالَآءِ رَبِّكَ تَتَمَارَىٰ
The Surah talks about the eminence of the Prophet (saw) with his Mi’raj and closeness to Allah. It warns the disbelievers about the errors of their attitude towards the Qur’an and the Prophet of Allah. Some of their wrong beliefs in the angels as daughters of God, intercession of the angels etc. are also mentioned.
اور یہ کہ اُسی نے عاد اولیٰ کو ہلاک کیا 
اور ثمود کو ایسا مٹایا کہ ان میں سے کسی کو باقی نہ چھوڑا 
اور اُن سے پہلے قوم نوحؑ کو تباہ کیا کیونکہ وہ تھے ہی سخت ظالم و سرکش لوگ 
اور اوندھی گرنے والی بستیوں کو اٹھا پھینکا 
پھر چھا دیا اُن پر وہ کچھ جو  (تم جانتے ہی ہو کہ) کیا چھا دیا 
پس اے مخاطب، 
اپنے رب کی کن کن نعمتوں  میں تو شک کرے گا؟"
The Mi’raj experience of the Prophet Muhammad (saw). Gods or goddesses of the non-believers are mere conjectures and names without any reality.
The angels are the servants of Allah. No intercession can work against Allah. Allah is most forgiving, but He requires righteousness.
Those who deny the truth they are standing against the power and majesty of Allah.
