Hizb 45
Juz 23
And put forward to them a similitude; the (story of the) dwellers of the town, [It is said that the town was Antioch (Antakiya)], when there came Messengers to them. (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 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) They (people) said: "For us, we see an evil omen from you, if you cease not, we will surely stone you, and a painful torment will touch you from us." (18) They said, "Your omen is with yourselves. Is it because you were reminded? Rather, you are a transgressing people." (19) Then there came running, from the farthest part of the City, a man, saying, "O my people! Obey the messengers: (20) Follow those who do not ask you for any reward and who are rightly guided. (21) Why should I not worship Him who has originated me and to whom you shall all be returned? (22) Should I take to worshipping [other] deities beside Him? [But then,] if the Most Gracious should will that harm befall me, their intercession could not in the least avail me, nor could they save me: (23) In that case I would surely be in clear error. (24) “Indeed I have believed in your Lord, so heed me.” (25) It was said to him, “Enter Paradise”; he said, “If only my people knew!” (26) "That my Lord (Allah) has forgiven me, and made me of 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 naught but a single cry, and lo! they were still. (29) Ah, woe for those servants! Never comes unto them a Messenger, but they mock at 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) all shall be arraigned before Us. (32)
