AND SET FORTH unto them a parable - [the story of how] the people of a township [behaved] when [Our] message-bearers came unto them. (13) We sent them two Messengers whom they rejected. We supported them by sending a third one who told the people, "We are the Messengers (of God) who have been sent to you". (14) They replied, "You are nothing but mortal men like us and the Merciful God has not revealed anything. You are surely lying." (15) They said: "Our Lord doth know that we have been sent on a mission to you: (16) but we are not bound to do more than clearly deliver the message [entrusted to us]." (17) They said, 'We augur ill of you. If you give not over, we will stone you and there shall visit you from us a painful chastisement.' (18) They said: 'Your prediction is with you, if you are reminded. Surely, you are but a wayward nation' (19) Then came a man from the furthest part of the city, running; he said, 'My people, follow the Envoys! (20) follow those who do not ask any recompense from you and are rightly-guided. (21) Why should I not worship Him who brought me into being, to whom you will be brought back in the end? (22) What! shall I take besides Him gods whose intercession, If the Beneficent Allah should desire to afflict me with a harm, shall not avail me aught, nor shall they be able to deliver me? (23) In that case I would surely be in clear error. (24) "Verily, [O my people,] in the Sustainer of you all have I come to believe: listen, then, to me!" (25) (Eventually they killed him and he was told): “Enter Paradise.” The man exclaimed: “Would that my people knew (26) (wherein he said), "Would that people knew how my Lord has granted me forgiveness and honor". (27) ۞ After him, We did not send down any hosts from the heaven; We stood in no need to send down any host. (28) It was only one Cry and lo, they were silent and still. (29) How regretful for the servants. There did not come to them any messenger except that they used to ridicule him. (30) Are they not aware of how many a generation We have destroyed before their time, [and] that those [that have perished] will never return to them, (31) And surely, all, everyone of them will be brought before Us. (32)
