Story of Hazrat Hud (A.S.) part 2

Hazrat Hud (A.S.) continued to guide his people and warned them from the punishment from Allah (S.W.T.). They were not accepting guidance and said to him that he is given punishment from the idols due to harming them. As the disbelief of people of Aad was increasing with time therefore signs of punishment started to appear. Drought started and affected the fertile lands.

People of Aad were shocked and started to wait for rain but their disbelief was not ended. There was intense heat which resulted in dry land and it was the start of punishment. Then weather changed to very cool. Wind blew with great speed and torn the shelters. Severity of the wind was so great that it destroyed the skin of the body. This storm of wind continued for almost one week.

People of Aad were searching for shelter in this storm of wind but they were not able to get rid of punishment from Allah (S.W.T.). That storm continued on them for almost one week and destroyed all the disbelievers. All the disbelievers were destroyed and the green lands were converted to desert. Hazrat Hud (A.S.) and his followers were kept save from hardships of storm and they were then moved to present day Yemen.

Recent research has discovered that area and found that a wealthy nation lived there. Signs of towers and walls are found which also indicate that this place was occupied by ancient civilization of Aad. People of Aad were destroyed because they were not following the right path of Islam. They were given instructions and guidance through Hazrat Hud (A.S.) but they paid no attention.

They were happy with their life in this world and spreading crime by using their powers in a wrong manner. Allah (S.W.T.) gave them many facilities and then guided them through Hazrat Hud (A.S.) but these people were not willing to accept the guidance. Their wrong actions were increasing and there was a need to stop them. There is a limit from Allah (S.W.T.) for all tasks.

When that limit is crossed then decisions are made which are not changed. People of Aad were proud on their strength and wealth therefore they were not willing to admit to the rules of Allah (S.W.T.). Strength was also given to Hazrat Hud (A.S.) but he was also given guidance and knowledge from Allah (S.W.T.) for working in the right direction.

His guidance attracted some people who become believers and followers of Islam. These believers were saved from the storm of sand which destroyed all the disbelievers in the civilization of Aad. Remains of Aad could be found in the present time as a lesson for all the disbelievers. This life is limited and there will be life again after death in which actions in this life would be checked and decisions would be made on their basis.

Punishment from Allah (S.W.T.) comes only when there are no signs of improvements. Chances are given in this life for following the right path and leave the wrong path so that punishment could be avoided. It is important to use time in this life for doing good acts and leaving bad acts so that success could be obtained in the permanent life after this life.
