Is there a nation that was destroyed because of blocking roads and preventing people from passing?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

The nation that stopped by the roads and threatened people so that they would not believe was the nation of Hz. Shuayb. One of the verses regarding the issue is as follows:  

“And squat not on every road, breathing, threats, hindering from the path of Allah those who believe in Him and seek to make it something crooked…”(al-Araf, 7/86).

According to what is stated in the resources, the people of this nation stood at the entrance of of the roads and threatened to kill the people who wanted to visit Hz. Shuayb and told them that he was a liar, preventing them from meeting and talking to him. (see Tabari, Baghawi, Ibn Ashur, the interpretation of the relevant verse)
