Sura 17
Aya 16
وَإِذا أَرَدنا أَن نُهلِكَ قَريَةً أَمَرنا مُترَفيها فَفَسَقوا فيها فَحَقَّ عَلَيهَا القَولُ فَدَمَّرناها تَدميرًا


And when We resolve to destroy a town, We send (some) command to the rich and the affluent among them (so that the common man and the poor too may make amends) but they act disobediently in (the town). Thus Our decree (of torment) becomes due against it. Then We totally smash that town.
