Translation

Do they not travel through the earth, and see what was the End of those before them,- though they were superior to them in strength? Nor is Allah to be frustrated by anything whatever in the heavens or on earth: for He is All-Knowing. All-Powerful.

Tafsir

Have they not travelled in the land and seen the nature of the consequence for those who were before them - and they were mightier than these in power?, but [still] God destroyed them for their denial of the messengers. And God is not such that anything in the skies or in the earth can escape Him, pre-empt Him or elude Him. Truly He is ever Knower, of all things, Omnipotent.
