The people of ‘Ad denied their messenger

I take refuge with Allaah, the Exalted, from the accursed devil.

The people of ‘Ad denied their messenger.

كَذَّبَتْ عَادٌ فَكَيْفَ كَانَ عَذَابِى وَنُذُرِ

(18. `Ad denied; then how was My torment and My warnings)

إِنَّآ أَرْسَلْنَا عَلَيْهِمْ رِيحاً صَرْصَراً فِى يَوْمِ نَحْسٍ مُّسْتَمِرٍّ

(19. Verily, We sent against them a violently cold (Sarsar) wind on a day of calamity, continuous.)

– تَنزِعُ النَّاسَ كَأَنَّهُمْ أَعْجَازُ نَخْلٍ مُّنقَعِرٍ  

(20. Plucking out men as if they were uprooted stems of date palms.)

فَكَيْفَ كَانَ عَذَابِى وَنُذُرِ

 (21. Then, how was My torment and My warnings)

وَلَقَدْ يَسَّرْنَا الْقُرْءَانَ لِلذِّكْرِ فَهَلْ مِن مُّدَّكِرٍ

 (22. And We have indeed made the Qur’an easy to understand and remember; then is there any that will remember)

Surah 54 Al Qamar Verse 18-22

Tafsir Ibn Kathir

So, Allah sent on them,

(against them a violently cold (Sarsar) wind), means, a bitterly cold and furious wind,

(on a day of calamity), against them, according to Ad-Dahhak, Qatadah and As-Suddi,

(continuous), upon them because the calamity, torment and destruction that they suffered in this life on that day continued with that of the Hereafter,

(Plucking out men as if they were uprooted stems of date palms.) The wind would pluck one of them and raise him high, until he could no longer be seen, and then violently send him down on his head to the ground. His head would be smashed and only his body would be left, headless,

(as if they were uprooted stems of date palms. Then, how was My torment and My warnings And We have indeed made the Qur’an easy to understand and remember; then is there any that will remember)
