>>Messengers (Prophets)
Shu'ayb A

S
hu'ayb A was a Rasul (Messenger) whom Allah (God) had sent to the city of Madyan (Madian); which was a part of Ma'an, now in Syria. People of Madyan (Madian) were greedy people who did not believe in Allah (God) and worshipped other idols and deities.
They had loose characters and deceived people to make profits. Most of them were trouble-makers who thrived upon telling lies and making mischief.
There was a very small number of straight people who believed in
Allah (God).
Shu'ayb A
told them that
Allah (God) has specifically sent them to the non-believers of Madyan (Madian). Shu'ayb A began delivering the Message of Allah (God) to them.
And to the people of Madyan (Madian), (We sent) their brother Shu'ayb. He said: "O my people! Worship Allah! You have no other Ilah (God) but Him. [La ilaha illallah (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah)]." Verily a clear proof (sign) from your Lord has come unto you; so give full measure and full weight and wrong not men in their things, and do not do mischief on the earth after it has been set in order, that will be better for you, if you are believers.
Surah (Chapter) Al-A'raf (The Heights) The Qur-an 7:85

Most people of
Madyan (Madian) did not listen to Shu'ayb A and reacted sharply to his preachings.
They also mocked him and told him that he was a liar and a possessed one and not a Messenger of
Allah (God).


They said: "You are only one of those bewitched!
"You are but a human being like us and verily, we think that you are one of the liars!
Surah (Chapter) Ash-Shu'ara (The Poets) The Qur-an 26:185, 186

They did not allow those few good people of their city who listened to Shu'ayb A and were on the Path of Allah (God).
Shu'ayb A
warned them of the Wrath of Allah (God), they were invited upon them selves by their wrong deeds.
"And sit not on every road, threatening and hindering from the Path of Allah those who believ in Him, and seeking to make it crooked. And remember when you were but few, and He multiplied you. And see what was the end of the Mufsidun (mischief-makers, corrupters, liars).
Surah (Chapter) Al-A'raf (The Heights) The Qur-an 7:86

Shu'ayb A
tried to reason with the trouble-makers of his town. He pleaded to them to allow the believers in Allah (God) to follow their beliefs and asked them to continue with their beliefs.

"And if their is a party of you who who believe in that with which I have been sent and a party who do not believe, so be patient until Allah judges between us, and He is the Best of judges."
Surah (Chapter) Al-A'raf (The Heights) The Qur-an 7:87

The non-believers of
Madyan (Madian) had been blinded so much by their wrong-doings that they threatened Shu'ayb A and his followers to mend their ways by joining them or leave their town.

The chiefs of those who were arrogant among his people said: "We shall certainly drive you out, O Shu'aib, and those who have believed with you from our town, or else you (all) shall return to our religion." He said: "Even though we hate it!?"
Surah (Chapter) Al-A'raf (The Heights) The Qur-an 7:88

The people of
Madyan (Madian) challenged Shu'ayb A to bring the Wrath of Allah (God) upon them if he was a true Messenger.
"So cause a piece of the heaven to fall on us, if you are the truthful!"
Surah (Chapter) Ash-Shu'ara (The Poets) The Qur-an 26:187

Shu'ayb A
warned them again and again about the wrath of Allah (God) but they were adament and did not care.
Allah (God) caused a severe earthquake that devastated Madyan (Madian) and killed all disbelievers.

Our religion." He said: "Even though we hate it!?"So the earthquake seized them and they lay (dead), prostrate in their homes.
Surah (Chapter) Al-A'raf (The Heights) The Qur-an 7:91

Shu'ayb A
told his followers that the disbelievers did not believe in the Message of Allah (God) that he had deliverd and Allah (God) punished them severely.
Then he (Shu'aib) turned from them and said: "O my people! I have indeed conveyed my Lord's Message unto you and I have given you good advice. Then how can I sorrow for the disbelieving people's (destruction)."
Surah (Chapter) Al-A'raf (The Heights) The Qur-an 7:93
