وَكَأَيِّن مِّن قَرۡيَةٍ أَمۡلَيۡتُ لَهَا وَهِىَ ظَالِمَةٌ ثُمَّ أَخَذۡتُهَا وَإِلَىَّ ٱلۡمَصِيرُ
And to how many populations did I give respite, which were given to wrong-doing? in the end I punished them. To me is the destination (of all).<br/>
To how many a town did I give respite while it was doing wrong; [but] then I seized it, meaning, [I seized] its inhabitants, and with Me lies the journey's end, the [final] return.
