Although the Quran is a religious scripture, it lays great stress on the utility of history. There are many verses in the Quran that narrate the history of previous nations. It narrates the life story of both kings and the common men and their fate. God says that He destroyed many nations after the nation of Noah because of their idol worship and social evils rampant among them. The Quran speaks of many nations, that of Saba, of Aad, of Samud, of Pharaoh, nation of Prophet Loth and many others that were destroyed due to their evil and immoral practices along with their idol worship. The Quran also says that God has saved their relics and remnants so that the future generations and nations could learn a lesson till the Day of Judgment. Quran says,

Fatabiru ya ulil Absar
