Sura 35
Aya 44
أَوَلَم يَسيروا فِي الأَرضِ فَيَنظُروا كَيفَ كانَ عاقِبَةُ الَّذينَ مِن قَبلِهِم وَكانوا أَشَدَّ مِنهُم قُوَّةً ۚ وَما كانَ اللَّهُ لِيُعجِزَهُ مِن شَيءٍ فِي السَّماواتِ وَلا فِي الأَرضِ ۚ إِنَّهُ كانَ عَليمًا قَديرًا


Have they not journeyed through the land and looked with their minds' eyes to see what was the end of those who preceded them who were far mightier than they are and their diligence never wearied! Nonetheless, their might conferred on them no immunity against Allah's retributive punishment. Nothing irrespective of its nature can stand in Allah's way or impede His course of action or frustrate the laws and statutes of His realm in the heavens or on earth; He has always been 'Alimun and Qadirun
