Hizb 45
Juz 23
And relate to them the signs of the people of the city when two emissaries came to them. (13) When We sent unto them twain, and they denied them both, so We reinforced them with a third, and they said: Lo! we have been sent unto you. (14) But they said: 'You are only humans like ourselves. The Merciful has not sent down anything, your speech is but lies' (15) They said: our Lord knoweth that we are surely unto you the sent ones. (16) And our duty is but plain conveyance (of the 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 augury is with you; if you are reminded? But you are a prodigal people.' (19) A man came running from the farthest part of the city saying, "My people, follow the Messengers. (20) “Obey those who do not ask any fee from you, and they are on 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) Shall I take (other) gods in place of Him when, if the Beneficent should wish me any harm, their intercession will avail me naught, nor can they save? (23) “Undoubtedly, I am then in open error.” (24) I believe in your Lord, so hear me' (25) (Eventually they killed him and he was told): “Enter Paradise.” The man exclaimed: “Would that my people knew (26) How my Lord has forgiven me and made me one of those who are honoured!" (27) ۞ After him We did not send down against his people a host from heaven, nor do We send down such hosts: (28) nothing was [needed] but one single blast [of Our punishment] - and lo! they became as still and silent as ashes. (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) But each one of them all - will be brought before Us (for judgment). (32)
