Hizb 45
Juz 23
Set forth to them, by way of a parable, the (story of) the Companions of the City. Behold!, there came messengers to it. (13) What time We sent unto them two, then they belied the twain, wherefore We strengthened them with a third, and they said: verily we are unto you the sent ones. (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 most surely apostles to you. (16) And we are not responsible except for clear notification." (17) They rejoined: "We feel you augur ill. If you do not desist, we shall stone you to death, and inflict a grievous punishment on you." (18) They said, 'Your augury is with you; if you are reminded? But you are a prodigal people.' (19) And there came from the farthest part of the town a man running. He said; O my people! follow the sent ones. (20) follow those who ask no wage of you and are rightly guided. (21) "Why should I not worship God who has created me? To him you will all return. (22) Should I take to worshipping [other] deities beside Him? [But then,] if the Most Gracious should will that harm befall me, their intercession could not in the least avail me, nor could they save me: (23) "I would indeed, if I were to do so, be in manifest Error. (24) I believe in your Lord; so listen to me.” (25) [And] he was told, "[Thou shalt] enter paradise!" - [whereupon] he exclaimed: "Would that my people knew (26) how my Sustainer has forgiven me [the sins of my past,] and has placed me among the honoured ones!" (27) ۞ And We sent not against his people after him a host from heaven, nor do We send (such a thing). (28) It was just one scream, and with it they were extinguished. (29) Alas for men! No apostle ever came to them but they made fun of him. (30) Have they not seen how many nations before them did We destroy? Thereafter they never came back to them. (31) All of them shall (one day) be gathered before Us. (32)
