Translation

Mention (Hud) one of 'Ad's (own) brethren: Behold, he warned his people about the winding Sand-tracts: but there have been warners before him and after him: "Worship ye none other than Allah: Truly I fear for you the Penalty of a Mighty Day."

Tafsir

And mention the brother of 'aad, namely, Hood, peace be upon him, when (idh . [from here] to the end [of the verse] constitutes an inclusive substitution) he warned his people, he threatened them, at Ahqaaf, ['the Sand dunes' is the name of] a valley in Yemen, where their dwellings were located - and already warners, messengers, had passed away before him and after him, that is to say, before Hood [came to them] and after him, to their peoples - saying, 'Do not worship anyone but God (the statement [beginning with] wa-qad khalat, 'and already [warners] had passed away', is a parenthetical one). Truly I fear for you - should you worship other than God - the chastisement of a dreadful day'.
