Hizb 17
Juz 9
To Midian We sent their brother Shu'ayb. He said, "O my people, worship God; you have no other god but Him. A clear Sign has indeed come to you from your Lord. So give full measure and full weight, and do not deliver short. Do not corrupt the land after it has been set in order. This is for your own good, if you are true believers. (85) Do not lie in ambush to intimidate and divert from the path of God those who believe in Him, nor seek obliquity in it. Remember the day when you were few and He increased your numbers. So consider the fate of those who were evil. (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 arrogant leaders of the people replied: "We shall drive you away from our land, O Shu'aib, and those who are with you, unless you come back to your faith." But he remarked: "Even if we are disgusted with it? (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) The leaders, the unbelievers among his people, said: "If ye follow Shu'aib, be sure then ye are ruined!" (90) Whereupon an earthquake laid hold of them: so that they lay prone in their dwelling. (91) As if those who denied Shoaib had never lived in those homes; those who denied Shoaib, were themselves ruined. (92) So Shoaib turned away from them saying, “O my people! Indeed I did deliver my Lord’s message to you and gave you sound advice; so why should I grieve for the disbelievers?” (The people in the graves can hear the speech of those who are on earth.) (93)
