AND SET FORTH unto them a parable - [the story of how] the people of a township [behaved] when [Our] message-bearers came unto them. (13) What time We sent unto them two, then they belied the twain, wherefore We strengthened them with a third, and they said: verily we are unto you the sent ones. (14) "You are only men like us," they replied; "Ar-Rahman has not sent down any thing. You are speaking only lies." (15) They said: our Lord knoweth that we are surely unto you the sent ones. (16) and it is only for us to deliver the Manifest Message.' (17) The people of the town said: “We believe you are an evil omen for us. If you do not desist, we will stone you or you will receive a grievous chastisement from us.” (18) They said: 'Your prediction is with you, if you are reminded. Surely, you are but a wayward nation' (19) And there came from the farthest part of the town a man running. He said; O my people! follow the sent ones. (20) follow those who do not ask any recompense from you and are rightly-guided. (21) For what cause should I not serve Him Who hath created me, and unto Whom ye will be brought back? (22) Should I take other gods apart from Him, who would neither be able to intercede for me nor save me if Ar-Rahman brings me harm? (23) (Had I worshipped things besides God, I would have been in manifest error). (24) Indeed, I have believed in your Lord, so listen to me." (25) (Having been murdered by the disbelievers) he was told to enter paradise (26) how my Sustainer has forgiven me [the sins of my past,] and has placed me among the honoured ones!" (27) ۞ After him, We did not send down any hosts from the heaven; We stood in no need to send down any host. (28) It was just one scream, and with it they were extinguished. (29) Ah! Alas for (My) Servants! There comes not a messenger to them but they mock him! (30) Have they not considered how many generations We destroyed before them - that they to them will not return? (31) And surely all, every one of them, shall be brought before Us. (32)
