[054:028] And inform them that the water is to be shared between (her and) them, each one's right to drink being established (by turns).
[054:029] But they called their comrade and he took (a sword) and killed (her).
[054:030] Then, how (terrible) was My torment and My Warnings?
[054:031] Verily, We sent against them a single Saihah (torment awful cry), and they became like the stubble of a fold-builder.
[054:032] And indeed, We have made the Qur'ān easy to understand and remember; then is there any that will remember (or receive admonition)?
[054:033] The people of Lūt (Lot) denied the warnings.
[054:034] Verily, We sent against them a violent storm of stones (which destroyed them all), except the family of Lūt (Lot), We saved them in the last hour of the night,
[054:035] As a favour from Us. Thus do We reward him who gives thanks (by obeying Us).
[054:036] And he [Lūt (Lot)] indeed had warned them of Our Seizure (punishment), but they did doubt the warnings!
[054:037] And they indeed sought to shame his guests (by asking to commit sodomy with them). So, We blinded their eyes (saying), "Then taste you My torment and My Warnings."
[054:038] And verily, an abiding torment seized them early in the morning.
[054:039] "Then taste you My torment and My Warnings."
[054:040] And indeed, We have made the Qur'ān easy to understand and remember; then is there any that will remember (or receive admonition)?
[054:041] And indeed, warnings came to the people of Fir'aun (Pharaoh) [through Mūsā (Moses) and Hārūn (Aaron)].
[054:042] (They) denied all Our Signs, so We seized them with a Seizure of the All-Mighty, All-Capable (Omnipotent).
[054:043] Are your disbelievers (O Quraish!) better than these [nations of Nūh (Noah), Lūt (Lot), Sālih, and the people of Fir'aun (Pharaoh), who were destroyed]? Or have you an immunity (against Our torment) in the Divine Scriptures?
[054:044] Or say they: "We are a great multitude, victorious?"
[054:045] Their multitude will be defeated, and they will show their backs.
[054:046] Nay, but the Hour is their appointed time (for their full recompense), and the Hour will be more grievous and more bitter.
[054:047] Verily, the Mujrimūn (polytheists, disbelievers, sinners, criminals) are in error (in this world) and will burn (in the Hell-fire in the Hereafter).
[054:048] The Day they will be dragged on their faces into the Fire (it will be said to them): "Taste you the touch of Hell!"
[054:049] Verily, We have created all things with Qadar (Divine Preordainments of all things before their creation as written in the Book of Decrees Al-Lauh Al-Mahfūz).
