Hizb 17
Juz 9
And We sent Shuaib to Madyan from their community; he said, “O my people! Worship Allah you do not have any God except Him; indeed a clear proof has come to you from your Lord, so measure and weigh in full and do not give the people their goods diminished, and do not spread turmoil in the earth after it is organised; this is for your good, if you believe.” (85) And do not lie in ambush by every road [that leads to the truth,] threatening and trying to turn away from God's path all who believe in Him, and trying to make it appear crooked. And remember [the time] when you were few, and [how] He made you many: and behold what happened in the end to the spreaders 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 leaders, the arrogant party among his people, said: "O Shu'aib! we shall certainly drive thee out of our city - (thee) and those who believe with thee; or else ye (thou and they) shall have to return to our ways and religion." He said: "What! even though we do detest (them)? (88) We should have forged against God a lie if we returned into your creed; after God delivered us from it. It is not for us to return into it, unless God our Lord so will. Our Lord embraces all things in His knowledge. In God we have put our trust. Our Lord, give true deliverance between us and our people; Thou art the best of deliverers.' (89) The chiefs among his people who did not believe said (to them): "If you follow Shu'aib and his way you will surely be ruined." (90) Thereupon an earthquake overtook them and morning found them lying flattened in their homes; (91) those who cried lies to Shuaib, as if never they dwelt there; those who cried lies to Shuaib, they were the losers. (92) Then he (Shu'aib) turned from them and said: "O my people! I have indeed conveyed my Lord's Messages unto you and I have given you good advice. Then how can I sorrow for the disbelieving people's (destruction)." (93)
