Hizb 45
Juz 23
Strike for them a similitude -- the inhabitants of the city, when the Envoys came to it; (13) When We sent to them two Messengers, they belied them both, so We reinforced them with a third, and they said: "Verily! We have been sent to you as Messengers." (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) but we are not bound to do more than clearly deliver the message [entrusted to us]." (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 omen is with yourselves. Is it because you were reminded? Rather, you are a transgressing people." (19) Then a man came running from the other side of the city. "O my people," he said, "follow the messengers. (20) Follow such as ask no wage of you, that are right-guided. (21) "[As for me,] why should I not worship Him who has brought me into being, and to whom you all will be brought back? (22) "Shall I take (other) gods besides Him? If (Allah) Most Gracious should intend some adversity for me, of no use whatever will be their intercession for me, nor can they deliver me. (23) In that case I shall most surely be in clear error: (24) "For me, I have faith in the Lord of you (all): listen, then, to me!" (25) It was said (unto 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 after him, We did not send down any army from heaven against his people, nor did We intend to send down an army. (28) it was but one great blast and they fell down lifeless. (29) Ah, woe for those servants! Never comes unto them a Messenger, but they mock at him. (30) Have they not seen how many generations We destroyed before them, which indeed returned not unto them; (31) They will all be brought together before Us. (32)
