Wa laqadis tuhzi'a bi-Rusulim min qablika fahaaqa billazeena sakhiroo minhum maa kaanoo bihee yastahzi'oon
And already were messengers ridiculed before you, but those who mocked them were enveloped by that which they used to ridicule.
1 Mufti Taqi Usmani
Even before you (O Prophet,) many messengers were ridiculed. Those who laughed at them were, then, besieged by what they used to ridicule.
