Is it not yet clear to them how many peoples We destroyed before them, whose ruins they still pass by? Surely in this are signs for people of sound judgment.Had it not been for a prior decree from your Lord ˹O Prophet˺ and a term already set, their ˹instant˺ doom would have been inevitable.So be patient ˹O Prophet˺ with what they say. And glorify the praises of your Lord before sunrise and before sunset, and glorify Him in the hours of the night and at both ends of the day, so that you may be pleased ˹with the reward˺.Quran 20:128~130

أَفَلَمۡ یَهۡدِ لَهُمۡ كَمۡ أَهۡلَكۡنَا قَبۡلَهُم مِّنَ ٱلۡقُرُونِ یَمۡشُونَ فِی مَسَـٰكِنِهِمۡۚ إِنَّ فِی ذَ ٰلِكَ لَءَایَـٰتࣲ لِّأُو۟لِی ٱلنُّهَىٰ

وَلَوۡلَا كَلِمَةࣱ سَبَقَتۡ مِن رَّبِّكَ لَكَانَ لِزَامࣰا وَأَجَلࣱ مُّسَمࣰّى

فَٱصۡبِرۡ عَلَىٰ مَا یَقُولُونَ وَسَبِّحۡ بِحَمۡدِ رَبِّكَ قَبۡلَ طُلُوعِ ٱلشَّمۡسِ وَقَبۡلَ غُرُوبِهَاۖ
وَمِنۡ ءَانَاۤىِٕ ٱلَّیۡلِ فَسَبِّحۡ وَأَطۡرَافَ ٱلنَّهَارِ 
لَعَلَّكَ تَرۡضَىٰ
The subject matter of the Surah is to assure the Prophet and his followers that the message of the Qur’an will eventually succeed. The story of Prophet Moses is mentioned in detail. Then it is mentioned how the enemies of Islam are opposing it and what will be the consequences of this opposition for them.
پھر کیا اِن لوگوں کو (تاریخ کے اس سبق سے) کوئی ہدایت نہ ملی کہ اِن سے پہلے کتنی ہی قوموں کو ہم ہلاک کر چکے ہیں جن کی (برباد شدہ) بستیوں میں آج یہ چلتے پھرتے ہیں؟ در حقیقت اِس میں بہت سی نشانیاں ہیں اُن لوگوں کے لیے جو عقل سلیم رکھنے والے ہیں 

اگر تیرے رب کی طرف سے پہلے ایک بات طے نہ کر دی گئی ہوتی اور مہلت کی ایک مدّت مقرّر نہ کی جا چکی ہوتی تو ضرور اِن کا بھی فیصلہ چکا دیا جاتا 

پس اے محمدؐ، جو باتیں یہ لوگ بناتے ہیں اُن پر صبر کرو، 
اور اپنے رب کی حمد و ثنا کے ساتھ اُس کی تسبیح کرو سورج نکلنے سے پہلے اور غروب ہونے سے پہلے، 
اور رات کے اوقات میں بھی تسبیح کرو اور دن کے کناروں پر بھی، 
تاکہ تم خوش ہوجاؤ
