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 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) [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 (16) “And our duty is nothing but to plainly convey (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) Then there came running, from the farthest part of the City, a man, saying, "O my people! Obey the messengers: (20) Follow those who ask no recompense of you and are rightly guided. (21) And why should I not serve Him who originated me, and unto whom you shall be returned? (22) What, shall I take, other than Him, gods whose intercession, if the Merciful desires to afflict me, cannot help me at all, and they will never save me? (23) "Then verily, I should be in plain error. (24) "Verily, [O my people,] in the Sustainer of you all have I come to believe: listen, then, to 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 placed me among the honoured ones!" (27) ۞ And We sent not against his people after him a host from heaven, nor do We send (such a thing). (28) It was but one Shout, and lo! they were extinct. (29) Ah, the anguish for the bondmen! Never came there unto them a messenger but they did mock him! (30) Do they not see how many of the generations We have destroyed before them? Verily, they will not return to them. (31) And surely, all, everyone of them will be brought before Us. (32)
