Do they not travel through the earth and see what was the end of those before them? They were greater in number than these and superior in strength and in the traces in the land: Yet all that they accomplished was of no profit to them” – (Quran 40:82)
And verily, We have sent among every community, a Messenger (proclaiming): “Worship Allah (Alone), and avoid false deities ” Then of them were some whom Allah guided and of them were some upon whom the straying was justified. So travel through the land and see what was the end of those who denied (the truth). (Qur’an 16:36)
