Ayah

فَأَمَّا عَادٌ فَٱسۡتَكۡبَرُواْ فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ بِغَيۡرِ ٱلۡحَقِّ وَقَالُواْ مَنۡ أَشَدُّ مِنَّا قُوَّةً ۖ أَوَلَمۡ يَرَوۡاْ أَنَّ ٱللَّهَ ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَهُمۡ هُوَ أَشَدُّ مِنۡهُمۡ قُوَّةً ۖ وَكَانُواْ بِـَٔايَٰتِنَا يَجۡحَدُونَ

Translation

Now the 'Ad behaved arrogantly through the land, against (all) truth and reason, and said: "Who is superior to us in strength?" What! did they not see that Allah, Who created them, was superior to them in strength? But they continued to reject Our Signs!<br/>

Tafsir

As for 'aad, they acted arrogantly in the earth without right, and they said, upon their being threatened with the chastisement, 'Who is more powerful than us in might?', in other words, [they believed] no one [to be so] - a single man among them could pull out a huge rock from a mountainside and [have the strength to] place it wherever he wished. Did they not see, [did they not] realise, that God, He Who created them, was more powerful than them in might? And they used to deny Our signs, the miracles [We sent down].
