In the Name of Allah the Merciful Beneficient



7:130         And We punished [Pharaoh's] people with years of drought and shortage of crops in order that they might accept Admonition;

7:131         But when some good fortune came to them, they said: "This is due to our own efforts." When some misfortune afflicted them, they ascribed it to ill luck connected with [Moses] and those with him. Be informed! In fact men's ill luck is due to their evil deeds, so [God's] Punishment comes upon them but most of the people do not know.

7:133         And they said: [to Moses]: "Whatever miracle you bring to us to bewitch us, we will not believe in you."

7:133         So We sent upon them [all sorts of calamities]: the flood, the locusts, the lice, the frogs and the blood,*1 a succession of Clear Signs [representing [God's] Wrath]; yet they acted arrogantly because they were sinful folk;

7:134         And whenever a plague fell upon them, they said: O, [Moses!] Pray to your Creator&Nurturer on our behalf, regarding [Its] Promise to you;*2 If you remove the plague from us, we shall indeed believe in you, and we shall let the Children of Israel go with you."

7:135         But whenever We removed the plague from them after a fixed term which they were to reach, they would again break their promise;

7:136         So We took revenge from them, and drowned them in the sea, because they belied Our Signs and Miracles and were heedless about them;


*1- Turning of water into blood

*2- Acceptance of the Messengers intercessions by [God] for the people
