Hizb 45
Juz 23
Recite to them, as a case in point, the story of the people of the town when the Messengers came to them. (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) They said: You are naught but mortals like ourselves, nor has the Beneficent Allah revealed anything; you only lie. (15) They said, "Our Lord knows that we are messengers to you, (16) but we are not bound to do more than clearly deliver the message [entrusted to us]." (17) They said, 'We augur ill of you. If you give not over, we will stone you and there shall visit you from us a painful chastisement.' (18) The Messengers said, "This ill omen lies within yourselves. Will you then take heed? In fact, you are a transgressing people." (19) And there came from the farthest end of the city a man, running. He said, "O my people, follow the messengers. (20) Follow those who do not ask you for any reward and who 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) Should I take other than Him [false] deities [while], if the Most Merciful intends for me some adversity, their intercession will not avail me at all, nor can they save me? (23) In that case I shall most surely be in clear 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) Of that on account of which my Lord has forgiven me and made me of the honored ones! (27) ۞ We sent not down against his people after him a host from heaven, nor do We ever send. (28) It was just one scream, and with it they were extinguished. (29) Alas for mankind! There never came a Messenger to them but they used to mock at him. (30) Have they not seen how many generations We destroyed before them? They shall never return to them, (31) All of them shall (one day) be gathered before Us. (32)
