وَإِلَىٰ مَدْيَنَ أَخَاهُمْ شُعَيْباً فَقَالَ يٰقَوْمِ ٱعْبُدُواْ ٱللَّهَ وَٱرْجُواْ ٱلْيَوْمَ ٱلأَخِرَ وَلاَ تَعْثَوْاْ فِي ٱلأَرْضِ مُفْسِدِينَ
-Al-‘Ankabût ( العنكبوت )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

And, We sent, to Midian, their brother Shu‘ayb. He said, ‘O my people! Worship God and anticipate the Last Day, fear it, namely, the Day of Resurrection; and do not be degenerate in the earth, working corruption’ (mufsidīna is a circumstantial qualifier, emphasising its operator [wa-lā ta‘thaw, ‘do not be degenerate’]; it [the verb] derives from ‘athiya, meaning afsada, ‘he corrupted’).
