With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Sura 54 (Qamr)
The destruction of nations
“The (people) rejected all Our Signs; but We seized them with such Penalty (as comes) from One Exalted in Power, able to carry out His Will.”
We come across the destruction of a nation many times in the Quran. The punishments came because the people were stubborn in their resistance to the preachings of the Prophets of Allah. They were shown many clear and irrefutable Signs which if only one was shown to people seeking the truth, it would be sufficient for them accepting the message. However the rejecters were blinded by their arrogance and this lead their eventual destruction.
Cross reference Surah 6 verse 131
“(The Messengers were sent) thus, for thy Lord would not destroy, for their wrongdoing man’s habitations whilst their occupants were unwarned.”
