Juz 9
And to Midian, their brother Shu'aib. He said: 'Worship Allah, my nation, for you have no god except He. A clear sign has come to you from your Lord. Give just weight, and full measure; and do not diminish the goods of people. Do not corrupt the land after it has been set right, that is best for you, if you are believers. (85) And do not sit in every path, threatening and barring from God's way those who believe in Him, desiring to make it crooked. And remember when you were few, and He multiplied you; and behold, how was the end of the workers of corruption. (86) And if there is a group of you which believes in My message and others who disbelieve it, be patient until God shall judge between us. He is the best of judges." (87) ۞ The haughty elders of his people said: 'O Shu'ayb! We shall certainly banish you and your companions-in-faith from our town, or else you shall return to our faith.' Shu'ayb said: 'What! Even though we abhor [your faith]? (88) We would certainly be inventing falsehoods against God if we were to accept your way of life, when God has already saved us from it. We do not have to accept it unless God, our Lord, wills it. Our Lord's knowledge covers all things. We trust in Him and ask Him to judge among us and our people, for He is the best Judge." (89) A group of the unbelievers among his people told the others, "If you follow Shu'ayb, you will certainly lose a great deal." (90) But the earthquake took them unawares, and they lay prostrate in their homes before the morning! (91) those who had denied Shu'ayb became as though they had never lived there. Those who denied Shu'ayb, were themselves the losers. (92) So he turned away from them, saying, "My people, I delivered my Lord's messages to you and gave you sincere advice, so why should I grieve for people who refused to believe?" (93)
