The city of Iram is mentioned in the Quran in (Chapter 89, Verse 6): "Have you not considered how your Lord dealt with 'Aad - [With] Iram - who had lofty pillars..."
Iram is believed to be the city of the ancient civilization of 'Ad. According to Islamic tradition, the 'Ad people were a powerful and prosperous tribe but became arrogant and disobedient to God, leading to their destruction.
Connection to the Quran: The Quranic mention of Iram serves as a reminder of the consequences of arrogance and disobedience to God's guidance. It highlights the fleeting nature of worldly power and the importance of humility and righteousness.
