Travel Quotes

From the Quran

Travel through the earth Untitledand see what was the end of those before (you):
Most of them worshipped others besides Allah.
[Quran 30:42]For We assuredly sent amongst every People an apostle, (with the Command),
“Serve Allah, and eschew Evil”:
of the People were some whom Allah guided,
and some on whom error became inevitably (established).
So travel through the earth, and see what was the end of those who denied (the Truth).
[Quran 16:36]
