Prophet Shuaib (a.s)

[7:85] And to Madyan (We sent) their brother Shu'aib. He said: O my people! Serve Allah, you have no god other than Him; clear proof indeed has come to you from your Lord, therefore give full measure and weight and do not diminish to men their things, and do not make mischief in the land after its reform; this is better for you if you are believers:

[7:86] And do not lie in wait in every path, threatening and turning away from Allah's way him who believes in Him and seeking to make it crooked; and remember when you were few then He multiplied you, and consider what was the end of the mischief-makers.

[7:87] And if there is a party of you who believe in that with which am sent, and another party who do not believe, then wait patiently until Allah judges between us; and He is the best of the Judges.

[7:88] The chiefs, those who were proud from among his people said: We will most certainly turn you out, O Shu'aib, and (also; those who believe with you, from our town, or you shall come back to our faith. He said: What! Though we dislike (it)?

[7:89] Indeed we shall have forged a lie against Allah If we go back to your religion after Allah has delivered us from It, and it befits us not that we should go back to it, except if Allah our Lord please: Our Lord comprehends all things :n His knowledge; in Allah do we trust: Our Lord! Decide between us and our people with truth; and Thou art the best of deciders.

[7:90] And the chiefs of those who disbelieved from among his people said: If you follow Shu'aib, you shall then most surely be losers

[7:91] Then the earthquake overtook them, so they became motionless bodies in their abode.

[7:92] Those who called Shu'aib a liar were as though they had never dwelt therein; those who called Shu'aib a liar, they were the losers.

[7:93] So he turned away from them and said: O my people! Certainly I delivered to you the messages of my Lord and I gave you good advice; how shall I then be sorry for an unbelieving people?

[11:84] And to Madyan (We sent) their brother Shu'aib. He said: O my people! Serve Allah, you have no god other than He, and do not give short measure and weight: surely I see you in prosperity and surely I fear for you the punishment of an all-encompassing day.

[11:85] And, O my people! Give full measure and weight fairly, and de- fraud not men their things, and do not act corruptly in the land, making mischief:

[11:86] What remains with Allah is better for you if you are believers, and I am not a keeper over you.

[11:87] They said: O Shu'aib! Does your prayer enjoin you that we should forsake what our fathers worshipped or that we should not do what we please with regard to our property? Forsooth you are the forbearing, the right-directing one.

[11:88] He said: O my people! Have you considered if I have a clear proof from my Lord and He has given me a goodly sustenance from Himself, and I do not desire that in opposition to you I should betake myself to that which I forbid you: I desire nothing but reform so far as I am able, and with none but Allah is the direction of my affair to a right issue; on Him do I rely and to Him do I turn:

[11:89] And, O my people! Let not opposition to me make you guilty so that there may befall you the like of what befell the people of Nuh, or the people of Hud, or the people of Salih, nor are the people of Lut far off from you;

[11:90] And ask forgiveness of your Lord, then turn to Him; surely my Lord is Merciful, Loving-kind.

[11:91] They said: O Shu'aib! We do not understand much of what you say and most surely we see you to be weak among us, and were it not for your family we would surely stone you, and you are not mighty against us.

[11:92] He said: O my people! Is my family more esteemed by you than Allah? And you neglect Him as a thing cast behind your back; surely my Lord encompasses what you do:

[11:93] And, O my people! Act according to your ability, I too am acting; you will come to know soon who it is on whom will light the punishment that will disgrace him and who it is that is a liar, and watch, surely I too am watching with you.

[11:94] And when Our decree came to pass We delivered Shu'aib, and those who believed with him by mercy from Us, and the rumbling over- took those who were unjust so they became motionless bodies in their abodes,

[11:95] As though they had never dwelt in them; now surely perdition overtook Madyan as had perished Samood.

[15:78] And the dwellers of the thicket also were most surely unjust.

[15:79] So We inflicted retribution on them, and they are both, indeed, on an open road (still) pursued.

[26:176] The dwellers of the thicket gave the lie to the messengers.

[26:177] When Shu'aib said to them: Will you not guard (against evil)?

[26:178] Surely I am a faithful messenger to you;

[26:179] Therefore guard against (the punishment of) Allah and obey me:

[26:180] And I do not ask you any reward for it, my reward is only with the Lord of the worlds;

[26:181] Give a full measure and be not of those who diminish;

[26:182] And weigh (things) with a right balance,

[26:183] And do not wrong men of their things, and do not act corruptly in the earth, making mischief.

[26:184] And guard against (the punishment of) Him who created you and the former nations.

[26:185] They said: You are only of those deluded;

[26:186] And you are naught but a mortal like ourselves, and we know you to be certainly of the liars.

[26:187] Therefore cause a portion of the heaven to come down upon us, if you are one of the truthful.

[26:188] He said: My Lord knows best what you do.

[26:189] But they called him a liar, so the punishment of the day of covering overtook them; surely it was the punishment of a grievous day.

[26:190] Most surely there is a sign in this, but most of them do not believe.

[29:36] And to Madyan (We sent) their brother Shuaib, so he said: O my people! Serve Allah and fear the latter day and do not act corruptly in the land, making mischief.

[29:37] But they rejected him, so a severe earthquake overtook them, and they became motionless bodies in their abode.
