With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Sura 26 (Shuaraa)
Fraud, the vice of the Nabi Shuaib’s people
Nabi Shuaib admonished his people to follow the commands of Allah. They were a people who indulged in fraud, an evil practice that is prevalent today.
026.181 “Give just measure, and cause no loss (to others by fraud).
026.182 “And weigh with scales true and upright.
026.183 “And withhold not things justly due to men, nor do evil in the land, working mischief.
026.184 “And fear Him Who created you and (who created) the generations before (you)”
However, they rejected his warnings and as a consequence, were destroyed. A clear lesson for us today.
026.189 But they rejected him. Then the punishment of a day of overshadowing gloom seized them, and that was the Penalty of a Great Day.
