وَمَآ أَرْسَلْنَا فِى قَرْيَةٍ مِّن نَّبِىٍّ إِلَّآ أَخَذْنَآ أَهْلَهَا بِٱلْبَأْسَآءِ وَٱلضَّرَّآءِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَضَّرَّعُونَ
Asad Quran Translation
AND NEVER YET have We sent a prophet unto any community without trying its people with misfortune and hardship, so that they might humble themselves;
Malik Quran Translation
Whenever We sent a Prophet to a town We afflicted its people with adversity and misfortunes so that they might humble themselves.
Yusuf Ali Quran Translation
Whenever We sent a prophet to a town We took up its people in suffering and adversity in order that they might learn humility. 1065
Man was originally created pure. The need of a prophet arises when there is some corruption and iniquity, which he is sent to combat. His coming means much trial and suffering, especially to those who join him in his protest against wrong. Even so peaceful a prophet as Jesus said; "I came not to send peace but a sword" (Matt. x. 34). But it is all in Allah's Plan, for we must learn humility if we would be worthy of Him.
Mustafa Khattab Quran Translation
Whenever We sent a prophet to a society, We afflicted its ˹disbelieving˺ people with suffering and adversity, so perhaps they would be humbled.
Piktal Quran Translation
And We sent no prophet unto any township but We did afflict its folk with tribulation and adversity that haply they might grow humble.
