Tafseer of Surah Al Rum (The Romans) Ayat 42. Say: "Travel through the earth and see what was the end of those before (you): Most of them worshipped others besides Allah." If you contemplate history and past experience (including spiritual experience), you will find that evil and corruption tended to destroy themselves, because they had false idols for worship, false standards of conduct, and false goals of desire.
