With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Sura 46 (Ahqaf)
The guidance of Allah is explained in various ways
“We destroyed aforetime populations round about you; and We have shown the Signs in various ways, that they may turn (to Us).”
The people of Ad were destroyed despite been shown various signs to guide them to Allah. The Quran also gives us guidance in various ways so that no one can claim that they were unable to understand it. We learn from parables, stories, science, history and also through repetition. Allah (SWT) has catered for all types of intellect, in all places of the world and even all eras.
Cross reference Surah 39 verse 23
“Allah has revealed (from time to time) the most beautiful Message in the form of a Book, consistent with itself, (yet) repeating (its teaching in various aspects): the skins of those who fear their Lord tremble thereat; then their skins and their hearts do soften to the celebration of Allah’s praises. Such is the guidance of Allah: he guides therewith whom He pleases, but such as Allah leaves to stray, can have none to guide.”
