The Response of Shu`ayb's People, Their Disbelief in Him and the coming of the Punishment upon Them

Allah tells us how his people responded and how it was like the response of Thamud to their Messenger -- for they were of like mind -- when;

قَالُوا إِنَّمَا أَنتَ مِنَ الْمُسَحَّرِينَ

They said;You are only one of those bewitched!

meaning, `you are one of those who are affected by witchcraft.'
