مَآ ءَامَنَتۡ قَبۡلَهُم مِّن قَرۡيَةٍ أَهۡلَكۡنَٰهَآ ۖ أَفَهُمۡ يُؤۡمِنُونَ
(As to those) before them, not one of the populations which We destroyed believed: will these believe?<br/>
No town before them ever believed - meaning [none of] its inhabitants - of those that We destroyed, for the denial of the signs brought to them. Would they then believe? No.
