Sura 7
Aya 84
وَأَمطَرنا عَلَيهِم مَطَرًا ۖ فَانظُر كَيفَ كانَ عاقِبَةُ المُجرِمينَ

Yusuf Ali

And we rained down on them a shower (of brimstone):1 Then see what was the end of those who indulged in sin and crime!
  • The shower is expressly stated in Q. 11:82 to have been of stones. In 15:73-74, we are told that there was a terrible blast or noise (sayhah) in addition to the shower of stones. Taking these passages into consideration along with Gen, 19:24. (seen. 1049 above), I think it is legitimate to translate: “a shower of brimstone.”
