وَلَوْ أَنَّ أَهْلَ ٱلْقُرَىٰ ءَامَنُواْ وَٱتَّقَواْ لَفَتَحْنَا عَلَيْهِمْ بَرَكَٰتٍ مِّنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ وَٱلأَرْضِ وَلَـٰكِن كَذَّبُواْ فَأَخَذْنَٰهُمْ بِمَا كَانُواْ يَكْسِبُونَ
٩٦
-Al-A‘râf ( الأعراف )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

Yet had the people of the towns, the deniers, believed, in God and the messengers [sent] to them, and been fearful, of unbelief and acts of disobedience, We would have indeed opened upon them (read la-fatahnā or la-fattahnā) blessings from the heaven, by way of rain, and earth, by way of vegetation; but they denied, the messengers, and so We seized them, We punished them, on account of what they used to earn.
