Yusuf Ali

Yusuf Ali 3973 Allah's Justice or Punishment does not necessarily come with pomp and circumstance, nor have the forces of human evil or wickedness the power to require the exertion of mighty spiritual forces to subdue them. A single mighty Blast-either the rumbling of an earthquake, or a great and violent wind-was sufficient in this case. Cf. xi. 67 and n. 1561 (which describes the fate of the Thamud; also. n. 3463 to xxix. 40).

Yusuf Ali 3974 Cf. xxi. 15. They had made a great deal of noise in their time, but they were reduced to silence, like spent ashes.
