If you look at Sura 7, Verse 64 says: “They rejected him (Noah). Consequently, we saved him and those who stood by him in the ark, and we drowned those who rejected our revelations, for they were blinded people.” Verse 72 says: “We then saved him (Hood) and those who stood by him, by mercy from us. And we annihilated those who rejected our revelations, and refused to believe.” Verses 78–79 say: “Consequently, the quake annihilated them, leaving them dead in their homes. He (Saaleh) turned away from them, saying, ‘O my people, I have delivered my Lord’s message to you, and advised you, but you do not like those who advise you.’ ” Verse 83 says, “Consequently, we saved him (Lot) and his people, except his wife; she was with the doomed.” Verses 91–92 say, “The quake annihilated them, leaving them dead in their homes. Those who rejected Shu’aib vanished, as if they never existed. Those who rejected Shu’aib were the losers.” Verse 101 says, “We narrate to you the history of the doomed communities: their messengers went to them with clear proofs, but they were not to believe in what they had already rejected. God thus seals the hearts of the disbelievers.”
We see the same lessons in 26:105-190. The angel Gabriel has conveyed to me God’s plan: those who refuse to stand by His Messenger of the Covenant will be utterly destroyed. I was told specifically that it will be like the time of Noah. Only those who stand by God’s messenger will be saved. Allahu Akbar.
