Chapter 17 Verse 59

A Prophet Before Punishment

Allah has Outlined in the Qur’an beautifully:



“There is not a township but We shall destroy it before the Day of Resurrection, or punish it with a severe punishment. That is written down in the Book.” (Chapter 17 Verse 59)


Allah has made it clear that all townships would be destroyed before the day of judgement and States:


He who follows the right way follows it only for the good of his own soul: and he who goes astray, goes astray only to his own loss. And no bearer of burden shall bear the burden of another. We never punish until We have sent a Messenger.(Chapter 17 Verse 16)


Allah also States:


And thy Lord would never destroy the towns until He has raised in the mothertown thereof a Messenger, reciting unto them Our Signs; nor would We destroy the towns unless the people thereof are wrongdoers.(Chapter 28 Verse 60)


And He States:


And if We had destroyed them with a punishment before it they would have surely said, ‘Our Lord, wherefore didst Thou not send to us a Messenger that we might have followed Thy commandments before we were humbled and disgraced?’(Chapter 20 Verse 135)


Allah has made it clear that all towns will be destroyed and that whenever such punishment occurs a prophet has to come.
