Quran 58:5 [Opposing Allah]

Those who resist Allah and His Messenger will be crumbled to dust, as were those before them: for we have already sent down Clear Signs and the Unbelievers will have a humiliating Penalty [Quran 58:5]


The correct translation is “Surely those who act in opposition to Allah and His Apostle shall be laid down prostrate as those before them were laid down prostrate; and indeed We have revealed clear communications, and the unbelievers shall have an abasing chastisement.” Here, the clear reference is to the foolish pre-Islamic practice in which when a man would say to his wife in anger that her back is like that of her mother, and that by uttering this sentence, the marriage would be over. Quran is condemning such practices and claims that whoever does this, against the clear injunctions of God, would indeed be humbled.
