Ayah

وَكَأَيِّن مِّن قَرۡيَةٍ هِىَ أَشَدُّ قُوَّةً مِّن قَرۡيَتِكَ ٱلَّتِىٓ أَخۡرَجَتۡكَ أَهۡلَكۡنَٰهُمۡ فَلَا نَاصِرَ لَهُمۡ

Translation

And how many cities, with more power than thy city which has driven thee out, have We destroyed (for their sins)? and there was none to aid them.<br/>

Tafsir

And how many (ka-ayyin means kam) a town, by which is meant the inhabitants thereof, mightier in power than your town, Mecca, that is to say, its inhabitants, which expelled you (akhrajatka [is feminine despite the plural sense of inhabitants meant is because it] takes into account the [feminine] form of qarya, 'town'), have We destroyed (ahlaknaahum takes into account the former [plural] import of qarya, 'town'), and they had none to help them, against Our destruction [of them].
