Tell them the story of the people of the town to whom Messengers came. (13) When We sent to them two but they denied them, so We strengthened them with a third, and they said, "Indeed, we are messengers to you." (14) They replied, "You are nothing but mortal men like us and the Merciful God has not revealed anything. You are surely lying." (15) They answered: Our Lord knoweth that we are indeed sent unto you, (16) And our duty is but plain conveyance (of the message). (17) (The people of the city) said: We augur ill of you. If ye desist not, we shall surely stone you, and grievous torture will befall you at our hands. (18) They (Messengers) said: "Your evil omens be with you! (Do you call it "evil omen") because you are admonished? Nay, but you are a people Musrifun (transgressing all bounds by committing all kinds of great sins, and by disobeying Allah). (19) In the meantime a man came running from the far end of the town, saying: “My people, follow the Messengers; (20) follow those who ask no wage of 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) “What! Shall I appoint Gods other than Allah? So that if the Most Gracious should wish me any harm, their intercession would be of no use to me, nor would they be able to save me?” (23) Surely, I should then be in clear error. (24) Lo! I have believed in your Lord, so hear me! (25) [And] he was told, "[Thou shalt] enter paradise!" - [whereupon] he exclaimed: "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) ۞ 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 only a single blast which made them extinct. (29) OH, THE REGRETS that [most] human beings will have to bear! Never has an apostle come to them without their deriding him! (30) Do they not consider how many of the generations have We destroyed before them, because they do not turn to them? (31) All of them shall (one day) be gathered before Us. (32)
