Oh, verily, they [who are bent on denying the truth of this divine writ] are enshrouding their hearts in order to hide from Him. Oh, verily, [even] when they cover themselves with their garments [in order not to see or hear], He knows all that they keep secret as well as all that they bring into the open - for, behold, He has full knowledge of what is in the hearts [of men]Quran 11:5

أَلَاۤ إِنَّهُمۡ یَثۡنُونَ صُدُورَهُمۡ لِیَسۡتَخۡفُوا۟ مِنۡهُۚ 
أَلَا حِینَ یَسۡتَغۡشُونَ ثِیَابَهُمۡ یَعۡلَمُ 
مَا یُسِرُّونَ 
وَمَا یُعۡلِنُونَۚ 
إِنَّهُۥ عَلِیمُۢ بِذَاتِ ٱلصُّدُورِ
In this Surah we have the stories of Prophets Noah, Salih, Hud, Lot, Shuaib and Moses – peace be upon them all. The basic point is that Allah sent His Prophets and Messengers to mankind out of His grace and mercy, but when people did not listen to the Prophets and rejected their message then Allah’s punishment came and came relentlessly. It did not make any difference whether someone was the son of a Prophet or his wife or any one, none could escape Allah’s judgment.
دیکھو یہ اپنے سینوں کو دوھرا کرتے ہیں تاکہ خدا سے پردہ کریں۔ 
سن رکھو جس وقت یہ کپڑوں میں لپٹ کر پڑتے ہیں (تب بھی) وہ ان کی چھپی اور کھلی باتوں کو جانتا ہے۔ 

وہ تو دلوں تک کی باتوں سے آگاہ ہے
Seek forgiveness from Allah and His bounties will be for you.
Patience and good deeds bring the stability in character.
The story of Prophet Noah -peace be upon him.
The fate of those who disbelieved in Prophet Noah. The moving description of the fate of Prophet Noah’s son.
The Message of Prophet Hud. ‘Ad people denied Allah’s message and were punished.
The Message of Prophet Saleh, the Sign of the She-Camel, and end of Thamud.
Prophet Ibrahim receives the angles. The angels then went to Prophet Lot. The punishment of the people of Lot -peace be upon him.
