[029:039] And (We destroyed also) Qrn (Korah), Fir'aun (Pharaoh), and Hmn. And indeed Ms (Moses) came to them with clear Ayt (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), but they were arrogant in the land, yet they could not outstrip Us (escape Our punishment).


[029:040] So, We punished each (of them) for his sins, of them were some on whom We sent Hsib (a violent wind with shower of stones) [as on the people of Lt (Lot)], and of them were some who were overtaken by As-Saihah [torment awful cry, (as Thamd or Shu'aib's people)], and of them were some whom We caused the earth to swallow [as Qrn (Korah)], and of them were some whom We drowned [as the people of Nh (Noah), or Fir'aun (Pharaoh) and his people]. It was not Allh Who wronged them, but they wronged themselves.


[029:041] The likeness of those who take (false deities as) Auliy' (protectors, helpers) other than Allh is the likeness of a spider who builds (for itself) a house; but verily, the frailest (weakest) of houses is the spider's house if they but knew.


[029:042] Verily, Allh knows what things they invoke instead of Him. He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.


[029:043] And these similitudes We put forward for mankind; but none will understand them except those who have knowledge (of Allh and His Signs).


[029:044] (Allh says to His Prophet Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]): "Allh (Alone) created the heavens and the earth with truth (and none shared with Him in their creation)." Verily therein is surely a sign for those who believe.


[029:045] Recite (O Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) what has been revealed to you of the Book (the Qur'n), and perform As-Salt (the prayers). Verily, As-Salt (the prayer) prevents from Al-Fahsh' (i.e. great sins of every kind, unlawful sexual intercourse) and Al-Munkar (i.e. disbelief, polytheism, and every kind of evil wicked deed) and the remembering (praising) of (you by) Allh (in front of the angels) is greater indeed [than your remembering (praising) of Allh in prayers]. And Allh knows what you do.




(V.29:42) See the footnote of (V.2:165).


(V.29:45) It is said by Ibn 'Abbs and 'Abdullh bin Mas'd [radhi-yAllhu 'anhu]: If the Salt (prayer) of anyone does not prevent him from Al-Fhsh' and Al-Munkar (all kinds of evil, illegal and sinful deeds), then his Salt (prayer) increases him in nothing but loss, and to be far away from his Lord (Allh). (Tafsir Al-Qurtub)
