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) We sent to them two Messengers and they rejected both of them as liars. Then We strengthened them with a third (Messenger). (14) The (people) said: "Ye are only men like ourselves; and (Allah) Most Gracious sends no sort of revelation: ye do nothing but lie." (15) They answered: Our Lord knoweth that we are indeed sent unto you, (16) And nothing devolves on us but a clear deliverance (of the message). (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 from the remote part of the city there came a man running, he said: O my people! follow the apostles; (20) "Obey those who ask no reward of you (for themselves), and who have themselves received Guidance. (21) “And what is the matter with me that I should not worship Him Who created me, whereas it is towards Him that you are to return?” (22) Should I worship other gods besides Him? If the Beneficent God was to afflict me with hardship, the intercession of the idols can be of no benefit to me nor could it rescue me from hardship. (23) (Had I worshipped things besides God, I would have been in manifest error). (24) Verily I believe now in your Lord; so hearken unto me. (25) It was said, "Enter Paradise." He said, "I wish my people could know (26) how my Lord has forgiven me and 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) There was just one blast, and they were extinguished. (29) How regretful for the servants. There did not come to them any messenger except that they used to ridicule him. (30) Have they not considered how many generations We destroyed before them - that they to them will not return? (31) And all of them shall surely be brought before Us. (32)
