Hizb 45
Juz 23
Recount to them the example of the people to whose town Our messengers came. (13) We sent to them two, but they belied them so We reinforced them with a third. They said: 'We have surely been sent as Messengers to you' (14) They said, 'You are naught but mortals like us; the All-merciful has not sent down anything. You are speaking only lies.' (15) They said, 'Our Lord knows we are Envoys unto you; (16) And on us is naught but manifest preaching. (17) They (people) said: "For us, we see an evil omen from you, if you cease not, we will surely stone you, and a painful torment will touch you from us." (18) [The apostles] replied: "Your destiny, good or evil, is [bound up] with yourselves! [Does it seem evil to you] if you are told to take [the truth] to heart? Nay, but you are people who have wasted their own selves!" (19) And there came from the uttermost part of the city a man running. He cried: O my people! Follow those who have been sent! (20) "Obey those who ask no reward of you (for themselves), and who have themselves received Guidance. (21) Why should I not worship Him who has originated me and to whom you shall all be returned? (22) What! Shall I take any deities apart from Him whose intercession will not avail me the least were the Merciful One to bring any adversity upon me, nor will they be able to rescue me? (23) Then truly I should be in error manifest. (24) I believe in your Lord; so listen to me.” (25) It was said (to him when the disbelievers killed him): "Enter Paradise." He said: "Would that my people knew! (26) With what (munificence) my Lord hath pardoned me and made me of the honoured ones! (27) ۞ And after him, We did not send down any army from heaven against his people, nor did We intend to send down an army. (28) It was not but one shout, and immediately they were extinguished. (29) Woe to human beings! Whenever a Messenger came to them, they mocked him. (30) Have they not seen how many generations We destroyed before them? They shall never return to them, (31) all shall be arraigned before Us. (32)
