وَكَمْ قَصَمْنَا مِنْ قَرْيَةٍ كَانَتْ ظَالِمَةً وَّاَنْشَأْنَا بَعْدَهَا قَوْمًا اٰخَرِيْنَ ( الأنبياء: ١١ )
Wa kam qasamnaa min qaryatin kannat zaalimatanw wa anshadnaa ba'dahaa qawman aakhareen (al-ʾAnbiyāʾ 21:11)
And how many a city which was unjust have We shattered and produced after it another people. (Al-Anbya  : 11)
1 Mufti Taqi Usmani
How many a town, that were unjust, have We crushed and raised up after them another people!
