Juz 23
AND SET FORTH unto them a parable - [the story of how] the people of a township [behaved] when [Our] message-bearers came unto them. (13) We sent to them two Messengers and they rejected both of them as liars. Then We strengthened them with a third (Messenger). (14) They said, “You are nothing but mortals like us; the Most Gracious has not sent down anything you are nothing but liars.” (15) They answered, “Our Lord knows that surely, without doubt, we have been sent towards you.” (16) and it is only for us to deliver the Manifest Message.' (17) They rejoined: "We feel you augur ill. If you do not desist, we shall stone you to death, and inflict a grievous punishment on you." (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) Then, from the furthest part of the city, a man came running. He said, "My people, follow the messengers. (20) Follow those who do not ask for any recompense of you, and are rightly guided. (21) "Why should I not worship Him who has brought me into being, and to whom you shall all be recalled? (22) What! Shall I take any deities apart from Him whose intercession will not avail me the least were the Merciful One to bring any adversity upon me, nor will they be able to rescue me? (23) "Then verily, I should be in plain error. (24) "For me, I have faith in the Lord of you (all): listen, then, to me!" (25) It was said (to him when the disbelievers killed him): "Enter Paradise." He said: "Would that my people knew! (26) How my Lord has forgiven me and made me one of those who are honoured!" (27) ۞ We did not send down any army against his people from heaven, nor did We have to send one. (28) It was not but one shout, and immediately they were extinguished. (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) all shall be arraigned before Us. (32)
