Hizb 45
Juz 23
And propound thou unto them the similitude of the inhabitants of a town, when there came thereto the sent ones. (13) Lo! We sent unto them two [apostles,] and they gave the lie to both; and so We strengthened [the two] with a third; and thereupon they said: "Behold, we have been sent unto you [by God]!" (14) But they said: 'You are only humans like ourselves. The Merciful has not sent down anything, your speech is but lies' (15) They answered: Our Lord knoweth that we are indeed sent unto you, (16) And we are not responsible except for clear notification." (17) The (people) said: "for us, we augur an evil omen from you: if ye desist not, we will certainly stone you. And a grievous punishment indeed will be inflicted on you by us." (18) They said: Your evil fortune is with you; what! if you are reminded! Nay, you are an extravagant people. (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) And what reason have I that I should not serve Him Who brought me into existence? And to Him you shall be brought back; (22) What! shall I take besides Him gods whose intercession, If the Beneficent Allah should desire to afflict me with a harm, shall not avail me aught, nor shall they be able to deliver me? (23) "I would indeed, if I were to do so, be in manifest Error. (24) Indeed, I have believed in your Lord, so listen to me." (25) It was said (to him): 'Enter Paradise' and he said: 'Would that my people knew (26) That my Lord hath forgiven me, and hath made me of the honoured ones. (27) ۞ We did not send an army against his people from the heaven after his death nor did We need to send one. (28) nothing was [needed] but one single blast [of Our punishment] - and lo! they became as still and silent as ashes. (29) How regretful for the servants. There did not come to them any messenger except that they used to ridicule him. (30) Are they not aware of how many a generation We have destroyed before their time, [and] that those [that have perished] will never return to them, (31) They shall every one of them be arraigned before Us. (32)
