Hizb 45
Juz 23
And propound thou unto them the similitude of the inhabitants of a town, when there came thereto the sent ones. (13) When We had sent two towards them and they denied them both, so We fortified them with a third, and they all said, “Indeed we have been sent to you.” (14) [The others] answered: "You are nothing but mortal men like ourselves; moreover, the Most Gracious has never bestowed aught [of revelation] from on high. You do nothing but lie!" (15) They said, "Our Lord knows that we are messengers to you, (16) “And our duty is nothing but to plainly convey (the message).” (17) They said: verily we augur ill of you; if ye desist not, we shall surely stone you, and there will befall you from us a torment afflictive. (18) [The apostles] replied: "Your destiny, good or evil, is [bound up] with yourselves! [Does it seem evil to you] if you are told to take [the truth] to heart? Nay, but you are people who have wasted their own selves!" (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 you for any reward and who are rightly guided. (21) Why should I not worship Him who brought me into being, to whom you will be brought back in the end? (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) Verily then I should be in error manifest. (24) Indeed, I have believed in your Lord, so listen to me." (25) It was said: enter thou the Garden. He said: 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) ۞ And We did not send down upon his people after him any hosts from heaven, nor do We ever send down. (28) It was no more than a single mighty Blast, and behold! they were (like ashes) quenched and silent. (29) Alas for mankind! There never came a Messenger to them but they used to 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 of them, gathered together, will certainly be brought before Us. (32)
