وَعَادًا وَثَمُودَ وَقَدْ تَبَيَّنَ لَكُمْ مِنْ مَسَاكِنِهِمْ ۖ وَزَيَّنَ لَهُمُ الشَّيْطَانُ أَعْمَالَهُمْ فَصَدَّهُمْ عَنِ السَّبِيلِ وَكَانُوا مُسْتَبْصِرِينَ ﴿٣٨﴾
٣٨ - اور عاد اور ثمود کو بھی (ہم نے ہلاک کر دیا) چنانچہ اُن کے (ویران گھر) تمہاری آنکھوں کے سامنے ہیں اور شیطان نے اُن کے اعمال ان کو آراستہ کر دکھائے اور ان کو (سیدھے) رستے سے روک دیا۔ حالانکہ وہ دیکھنے والے (لوگ )تھے .
[29:38] And [We destroyed] 'Aad and Thamud, and it has become clear to you from their [ruined] dwellings. And Satan had made pleasing to them their deeds and averted them from the path, and they were endowed with perception.
