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) When We sent two of them they called them liars; so We sent a third to strengthen them. "We have been sent to you," they said. (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 nothing devolves on us but a clear deliverance (of the message). (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 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) "Why should I not worship God who has created me? To him you will all return. (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) In that case I would surely be in clear error. (24) Indeed, I have believed in your Lord, so listen to me." (25) It was said (to him when the disbelievers killed him): "Enter Paradise." He said: "Would that my people knew! (26) that my Lord has forgiven me and that He has placed me among the honoured.' (27) ۞ And We did not send down to his nation after him any army from heaven, neither would We send any down. (28) It was no more than a single mighty Blast, and behold! they were (like ashes) quenched and silent. (29) Ah, woe for those servants! Never comes unto them a Messenger, but they mock at him. (30) Have they not seen how many nations before them did We destroy? Thereafter they never came back to them. (31) But all, without exception, will be brought before Us. (32)
