وَعَادًا وَثَمُودَ وَأَصْحَابَ الرَّسِّ

And (also) `Ad and Thamud, and the Dwellers of Ar-Rass,

We have already discussed their story, which is referred to in more than one Surah, such as Surah Al-A`raf, and there is no need to repeat it here.

they were the people of one of the villages of Thamud.

Ath-Thawri narrated from Abu Bukayr from Ikrimah that;
Ar-Rass was a well where they buried (Rassu) their Prophet.

وَقُرُونًا بَيْنَ ذَلِكَ كَثِيرًا



and many generations in between.

means nations, many more than have been mentioned here, whom We destroyed.
