فَجَعَلْنَاهَا نَكَالاً لِّمَا بَيْنَ يَدَيْهَا وَمَا خَلْفَهَا وَمَوْعِظَةً لِّلْمُتَّقِينَ
-Al-Baqarah ( البقرة )

Al Qushairi Tafsir

[2:66] And We made it an exemplary punishment for all the former times and for the latter, and an admonition to such as who fear.
Thus the states of those who were tried by abandonment (muniyā bi'l-hijrān) and branded with disappointment (wusima bi'l-khidhlān) became a lesson - to look at what happened to them is to choke on grief. The one who is reduced to misery after having had status becomes an object of scorn before every low-life. This is what remains for those who have been brought low after the wrath of kings and the shunning of chieftains:
The youths surrounded
and ganged up on me.
From behind,
they called the dogs on me.
