Hizb 45
Juz 23
Recount to them the example of the people to whose town Our messengers came. (13) when We sent unto them two men, but they cried them lies, so We sent a third as reinforcement. They said, 'We are assuredly Envoys unto 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 knows that we are Messengers to you. (16) and our duty is no more than to clearly convey the Message.” (17) They (people) said: "For us, we see an evil omen from you, if you cease not, we will surely stone you, and a painful torment will touch you from us." (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) In the meantime a man came running from the far end of the town, saying: “My people, follow the Messengers; (20) follow those who do not ask any recompense from you and are rightly-guided. (21) And what aileth me that I should not worship Him who hath created me, and unto whom ye shall be returned. (22) What, shall I take, other than Him, gods whose intercession, if the Merciful desires to afflict me, cannot help me at all, and they will never save me? (23) Surely in that case I should indeed be in evident error. (24) “Indeed I have believed in your Lord, so heed me.” (25) We said to him, "Enter paradise," and he exclaimed: "Would that my people knew (26) that my Lord has forgiven me and that He has placed me among the honoured.' (27) ۞ And We sent not down upon his people, after him, any host out of heaven; neither would We send any down. (28) nothing was [needed] but one single blast [of Our punishment] - and lo! they became as still and silent as ashes. (29) OH, THE REGRETS that [most] human beings will have to bear! Never has an apostle come to them without their deriding him! (30) Have they not seen how many generations, living before them, had We destroyed and they cannot ever come back to them? (31) But all, without exception, will be brought before Us. (32)
