Translation

What! Are they better than the people of Tubba and those who were before them? We destroyed them because they were guilty of sin.

Tafsir

God, exalted be He, says: Are they better, or the people of Tubba' - [he was] a prophet or a righteous man - and those, communities, before them? We destroyed, because of their disbelief. In other words: they are not mightier than those, and yet they were destroyed; indeed they were criminals.
