Hizb 45
Juz 23
And set out to them an example of the people of the town, when the apostles came to it. (13) When We sent them two messengers, they rejected them both, so We strengthened them with a third. They said, "Truly, we have been sent to you [by God] as messengers." (14) They said: You are naught but mortals like ourselves, nor has the Beneficent Allah revealed anything; you only lie. (15) They said: "Our Lord doth know that we have been sent on a mission to you: (16) And our duty is but plain conveyance (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) They said: your evil augury be with you. Call ye it an ill-luck because ye are admonished! Aye! ye are a people extravagant. (19) And there came running from the farthest part of the town, a man, saying: "O my people! Obey the Messengers; (20) Follow those who ask no reward of you, and themselves are rightly guided! (21) And what aileth me that I should not worship Him who hath created me, and unto whom ye shall be returned. (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) In that case I shall most surely be in clear error: (24) Indeed, I have believed in your Lord, so listen to me." (25) (Eventually they killed him and he was told): “Enter Paradise.” The man exclaimed: “Would that my people knew (26) for what reason Allah has forgiven me and placed me among the honoured ones.” (27) ۞ We did not send down any army against his people from heaven, nor did We have to send one. (28) it was but one great blast and they fell down lifeless. (29) Alas for human beings! They ridicule every messenger that comes to them. (30) Have they not seen how many generations We destroyed before them, which will not return to them? (31) They will all be brought together before Us. (32)
