Hizb 45
Juz 23
Tell them the story of the people of the town to whom Messengers came. (13) When We sent unto them twain, and they denied them both, so We reinforced them with a third, and they said: Lo! we have been sent unto you. (14) The people said, "You are mere mortals like us and the Beneficent God has sent nothing. You are only liars." (15) They answered: Our Lord knoweth that we are indeed sent unto you, (16) And nothing devolves on us but a clear deliverance (of the 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 messengers) said: "The augury is within your own selves. Do you (consider it a bad omen) that you should be warned? You are a people guilty of excess." (19) Then a man came running from the other side of the city. "O my people," he said, "follow the messengers. (20) "Obey those who ask no reward of you (for themselves), and who have themselves received Guidance. (21) And what aileth me that I should not worship Him who hath created me, and unto whom ye shall be returned. (22) "Shall I take besides Him aliha (gods), if the Most Beneficent (Allah) intends me any harm, their intercession will be of no use for me whatsoever, nor can they save me? (23) In that case I shall most surely be in clear error: (24) Surely I believe in your Lord, therefore hear me. (25) [And] he was told, "[Thou shalt] enter paradise!" - [whereupon] he exclaimed: "Would that my people knew (26) “The manner in which my Lord has pardoned me and made me of the honoured ones!” (27) ۞ And We sent not against his people after him a host from heaven, nor have We been sending down any such. (28) It was no more than a single mighty Blast, and behold! they were (like ashes) quenched and silent. (29) Alas for human beings! They ridicule every messenger that comes to them. (30) What, have they not seen how many generations We have destroyed before them, and that it is not unto them that they return? (31) and [that] all of them, all together, will [in the end] before Us be arraigned? (32)
