[AND] the dwellers of the wooded dales [of Madyan] gave the lie to [one of God's] message-bearers (176) when Shuaib said to them, 'Will you not be godfearing? (177) Lo! I am a faithful messenger unto you, (178) So fear Allah and obey me. (179) "No reward do I ask of you for it (my Message of Islamic Monotheism), my reward is only from the Lord of the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists). (180) ۞ "Give just measure, and cause no loss (to others by fraud). (181) and weigh with the straight scale, (182) and do not deprive people of what is rightfully theirs; and do not act wickedly on earth by spreading corruption, (183) Fear Him who created you and those who have gone before you." (184) They said: "You are no more than one of those who have been bewitched, (185) Thou art but a mortal like us, and lo! we deem thee of the liars. (186) Then make fragments of the heaven fall upon us, if thou art of the truthful. (187) He. said: My Lord is the Best Knower of that which ye work. (188) But they belied him, so the torment of the day of shadow (a gloomy cloud) seized them, indeed that was the torment of a Great Day. (189) Surely, in that there is a sign; yet most of them do not believe. (190) And verily! Your Lord, He is indeed the All-Mighty, the Most Merciful. (191)
