Prophet Hud (a.s)

[7:65] And to Ad (We sent) their brother Hud. He said: O my people! Serve Allah, you have no god other than Him; will you not then guard (against evil)?

[7:66] The chiefs of those who disbelieved from among his people said: Most surely we see you in folly, and most surely we think you to be of the liars.

[7:67] He said: O my people! There is no folly in me, but I am a messenger of the Lord of the worlds.

[7:68] I deliver to you the messages of my Lord and I am a faithful adviser to you:

[7:69] What! Do you wonder that a reminder has come to you from your Lord through a man from among you that he might warn you? And remember when He made you successors after Nuh's people and increased you in excellence in respect of make; therefore remember the benefits of Allah, that you may be successful.

[7:70] They said: Have you come to us that we may serve Allah alone and give up what our fathers used to serve? Then bring to us what you threaten us with, if you are of the truthful ones.

[7:71] He said: Indeed uncleanness and wrath from your Lord have lighted upon you; what! do you dispute with me about names which you and your fathers have given? Allah has not sent any authority for them; wait then, I too with you will be of those who wait.

[7:72] So We delivered him and those with him by mercy from Us, and We cut off the last of those who rejected Our communications and were not believers.

[11:50] And to Ad (We sent) their brother Hud. He said: O my people! Serve Allah, you have no god other than He; you are nothing but forgers (of lies).

[11:51] O my people! I do not ask of you any reward for it; my reward is only with Him Who created me; do you not then understand?

[11:52] And, O my people! Ask forgiveness of your Lord, then turn to Him; He will send on you clouds pouring down abundance of rain and add strength to your strength, and do not turn back guilty.

[11:53] They said: O Hud! You have not brought to us any clear argument and we are not going to desert our gods for your word, and we are not believers in you:

[11:54] We cannot say aught but that some of our gods have smitten you with evil. He said: Surely I call Allah to witness, and do you bear witness too, that I am clear of what you associate (with Allah).

[11:55] Besides Him, therefore scheme against me all together; then give me no respite:

[11:56] Surely I rely on Allah, my Lord and your Lord; there is no living creature but He holds it by its forelock; surely my Lord is on the right path.

[11:57] But if you turn back, then indeed I have delivered to you the message with which I have been sent to you, and my Lord will bring an- other people in your place, and you cannot do Him any harm; surely my Lord is the Preserver of all things.

[11:58] And when Our decree came to pass, We delivered Hud and those who believed with him with mercy from Us, and We delivered them from a hard chastisement.

[11:59] And this was Ad; they denied the communications of their Lord, and disobeyed His messengers and followed the bidding of every insolent opposer (of truth).

[11:60] And they were overtaken by curse in this world and on the resurrection day; now surely Ad disbelieved in their Lord; now surely, away with Ad, the people of Hud.

[26:123] Ad gave the lie to the messengers.

[26:124] When their brother Hud said to them: Will you not guard (against evil)?

[26:125] Surely I am a faithful messenger to you;

[26:126] Therefore guard against (the punishment of) Allah and obey me:

[26:127] And I do not ask you any reward for it; surely my reward is only with the Lord of the worlds

[26:128] Do you build on every height a monument? Vain is it that you do:

[26:129] And you make strong fortresses that perhaps you may

[26:130] And when you lay hands (on men) you lay hands (like) tyrants;

[26:131] So guard against (the punishment of) Allah and obey me

[26:132] And be careful of (your duty to) Him Who has given you abundance of what you know.

[26:133] He has given you abundance of cattle and children

[26:134] And gardens and fountains;

[26:135] Surely I fear for you the chastisement of a grievous day.

[26:136] They said: It is the same to us whether you admonish or are not one of the admonishers

[26:137] This is naught but a custom of the ancients;

[26:138] And we are not going to be punished.

[26:139] So they gave him the lie, then We destroyed them. Most surely there is a sign in this, but most of them do not believe.

[41:15] Then as to Ad, they were unjustly proud in the land, and they said: Who is mightier in strength than we? Did they not see that Allah Who created them was mightier than they in strength, and they denied Our communications?

[41:16] So We sent on them a furious wind in unlucky days, that We may make them taste the chastisement of abasement in this world's life; and certainly the chastisement of the hereafter is much more abasing, and they shall not be helped.

[46:21] And mention the brother of Ad; when he warned his people in the sandy plains, and indeed warners came before him and after him, saying Serve none but Allah; surely I fear for you the punishment of a grievous day.

[46:22] They said: Have you come to us to turn us away from our gods; then bring us what you threaten us with, if you are of the truthful ones.

[46:23] He said: The knowledge is only with Allah, and I deliver to you the message with which I am sent, but I see you are a people who are ignorant.

[46:24] So when they saw it as a cloud appearing in the sky advancing towards their valleys, they said: This is a cloud which will give us rain. Nay! It is what you sought to hasten on, a blast of wind in which is a painful punishment,

[46:25] Destroying everything by the command of its Lord, so they be- came such that naught could be seen except their dwellings. Thus do We reward the guilty people.

[46:26] And certainly We had established them in what We have not established you in, and We had given, them ears and eyes and hearts, but neither their ears, nor their eyes, nor their hearts availed them aught, since they denied the communications of Allah, and that which they mocked encompassed them.

[51:41] And in Ad: When We sent upon them the destructive wind.

[51:42] It did not leave aught on which it blew, but it made it like ashes.

[54:18] Ad treated (the truth) as a lie, so how (great) was My punishment and My warning!

[54:19] Surely We sent on them a tornado in a day of bitter ill-luck

[54:20] Tearing men away as if they were the trunks of palm-trees torn up.

[54:21] How (great) was then My punishment and My warning!

[69:6] And as to Ad, they were destroyed by a roaring, violent blast.

[69:7] Which He made to prevail against them for seven nights and eight days unremittingly, so that you might have seen the people therein prostrate as if they were the trunks of hollow palms.

[69:8] Do you then see of them one remaining?
