Hizb 45
Juz 23
Recite to them, as a case in point, the story of the people of the town when the Messengers came to them. (13) We sent to them two Messengers and they rejected both of them as liars. Then We strengthened them with a third (Messenger). (14) They said: You are naught but mortals like ourselves, nor has the Beneficent Allah revealed anything; you only lie. (15) The Messengers said: “Our Lord knows that we have indeed been sent to you (16) but we are not bound to do more than clearly deliver the message [entrusted to us]." (17) (The people of the city) said: We augur ill of you. If ye desist not, we shall surely stone you, and grievous torture will befall you at our hands. (18) They said: 'Your prediction is with you, if you are reminded. Surely, you are but a wayward nation' (19) Then, from the furthest part of the city, a man came running. He said, "My people, follow the messengers. (20) follow those who do not ask any recompense from you and are rightly-guided. (21) And why should I not worship He who created me and to whom you will be returned? (22) Shall I take (other) gods in place of Him when, if the Beneficent should wish me any harm, their intercession will avail me naught, nor can they save? (23) Then truly I should be in error manifest. (24) "Verily, [O my people,] in the Sustainer of you all have I come to believe: listen, then, to me!" (25) [And] he was told, "[Thou shalt] enter paradise!" - [whereupon] he exclaimed: "Would that my people knew (26) how my Lord has forgiven me and placed me among the honoured ones!" (27) ۞ And We sent not down against his People, after him, any hosts from heaven, nor was it needful for Us so to do. (28) it was but one great blast and they fell down lifeless. (29) Woe to human beings! Whenever a Messenger came to them, they mocked him. (30) Have they not seen how many generations, living before them, had We destroyed and they cannot ever come back to them? (31) All of them shall (one day) be gathered before Us. (32)
