And relate to them the signs of the people of the city when two emissaries came to them. (13) When We sent to them two Messengers, they belied them both, so We reinforced them with a third, and they said: "Verily! We have been sent to you as Messengers." (14) They (people of the town) said: "You are only human beings like ourselves, and the Most Beneficent (Allah) has revealed nothing, you are only telling lies." (15) They answered, “Our Lord knows that surely, without doubt, we have been sent towards you.” (16) and our duty is no more than to clearly convey the Message.” (17) They said: Surely we augur evil from you; if you do not desist, we will certainly stone you, and there shall certainly afflict you a painful chastisement from us. (18) They said: your evil augury be with you. Call ye it an ill-luck because ye are admonished! Aye! ye are a people extravagant. (19) Then, a man came running from the furthest part of the village 'My nation' he said, 'follow the Messengers, (20) Follow those who ask no recompense of 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) Should I worship other gods besides Him? If the Beneficent God was to afflict me with hardship, the intercession of the idols can be of no benefit to me nor could it rescue me from hardship. (23) Surely in that case I should indeed be in evident error. (24) "For me, I have faith in the Lord of you (all): listen, then, to me!" (25) It was said: enter thou the Garden. He said: would that my people knew. (26) "That my Lord (Allah) has forgiven me, and made me of the honoured ones!" (27) ۞ We did not send down any army against his people from heaven, nor did We have to send one. (28) There was but a single Blast and suddenly they became silent and still. (29) Alas for men! No apostle ever came to them but they made fun of him. (30) Do they not consider how many of the generations have We destroyed before them, because they do not turn to them? (31) All of them, gathered together, will certainly be brought before Us. (32)
