ثُمَّ اَرْسَلْنَا رُسُلَنَا تَتْرَاۗ كُلَّمَا جَاۤءَ اُمَّةً رَّسُوْلُهَا كَذَّبُوْهُ فَاَتْبَعْنَا بَعْضَهُمْ بَعْضًا وَّجَعَلْنٰهُمْ اَحَادِيْثَۚ فَبُعْدًا لِّقَوْمٍ لَّا يُؤْمِنُوْنَ ( المؤمنون: ٤٤ )

Then We sent Our messengers in succession. Every time there came to a nation its messenger, they denied him, so We made them follow one another [to destruction], and We made them narrations. So away with a people who do not believe. (Al-Mu'minun  : 44)

Thereafter, We sent Our messengers successively. Whenever its messenger came to a community, they rejected him. Then We made some of them follow others (in destruction) and turned them into tales (of history). So, away with a people who do not believe.
