Hizb 45
Juz 23
And present to them an example: the people of the city, when the messengers came to it - (13) When We sent to them two, they rejected both of them, then We strengthened (them) with a third, so they said: Surely we are apostles to you. (14) They said: Ye are but mortals like unto us. The Beneficent hath naught revealed. Ye do but lie! (15) (The messengers) said: "Our Lord knows that we have been sent to you. (16) And it is only for us to deliver a Clear Message' (17) Said [the others]: "Truly, we augur evil from you! Indeed, if you desist not, we will surely stone you, and grievous suffering is bound to befall you at our hands!" (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) At that, a man came running from the farthest end of the city, [and] exclaimed: "O my people! Follow these message-bearers! (20) Follow those who ask no recompense of you and are rightly guided. (21) Why should I not serve the One Who created me and to Whom all of you shall be sent back? (22) Shall I take beside Him gods when, if the Compassionate should intend me any harm, their intercession will avail me not at all, nor would they save me? (23) In that case I should indeed be in manifest error. (24) "For me, I have faith in the Lord of you (all): listen, then, to me!" (25) It was said, 'Enter Paradise!' He said, 'Ah, would that my people had knowledge (26) how my Sustainer has forgiven me [the sins of my past,] and has placed me among the honoured ones!" (27) ۞ And We sent not down upon his people, after him, any host out of heaven; neither would We send any down. (28) It was just one scream, and with it they were extinguished. (29) Woe to human beings! Whenever a Messenger came to them, they mocked him. (30) Behold they not how many We have destroyed before them of the generations! verily unto them they shall not return. (31) And surely, all, everyone of them will be brought before Us. (32)
