وَكَمْ اَهْلَكْنَا قَبْلَهُمْ مِّنْ قَرْنٍ هُمْ اَحْسَنُ اَثَاثًا وَّرِءْيًا ( مريم: ٧٤ )
Wa kam ahlaknaa qablahum min qarnin hum ahsanu asaasanw wa ri'yaa (Maryam 19:74)
And how many a generation have We destroyed before them who were better in possessions and [outward] appearance? (Maryam  : 74)
1 Mufti Taqi Usmani
How many a generation We have destroyed before them who were better in assets and outlook!
