وَسۡ‍َٔلۡهُمۡ عَنِ ٱلۡقَرۡيَةِ ٱلَّتِي كَانَتۡ حَاضِرَةَ ٱلۡبَحۡرِ إِذۡ يَعۡدُونَ فِي ٱلسَّبۡتِ إِذۡ تَأۡتِيهِمۡ حِيتَانُهُمۡ يَوۡمَ سَبۡتِهِمۡ شُرَّعٗا وَيَوۡمَ لَا يَسۡبِتُونَ لَا تَأۡتِيهِمۡۚ كَذَٰلِكَ نَبۡلُوهُم بِمَا كَانُواْ يَفۡسُقُونَ


[O Muhammad ( may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him )!] And ask them about the town that was by the sea, when they transgressed concerning the Sabbath (i.e. Saturday), when their fish came to them very visible on Saturday and did not come to them on other days. In this way We tested them because they used to disobey (the Commands of Allah).
