And set out to them an example of the people of the town, when the apostles came to it. (13) We sent to them two, but they belied them so We reinforced them with a third. They said: 'We have surely been sent as Messengers to you' (14) They said: You are naught but mortals like ourselves, nor has the Beneficent Allah revealed anything; you only lie. (15) (The messengers) said: "Our Lord knows that we have been sent to you. (16) "And our duty is only to proclaim the clear Message." (17) They (people) said: "For us, we see an evil omen from you, if you cease not, we will surely stone you, and a painful torment will touch you from us." (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) Then there came running, from the farthest part of the City, a man, saying, "O my people! Obey the messengers: (20) Follow those who do not ask for any recompense of you, and are rightly guided. (21) "[As for me,] why should I not worship Him who has brought me into being, and to whom you all will be brought back? (22) "Shall I take besides Him aliha (gods), if the Most Beneficent (Allah) intends me any harm, their intercession will be of no use for me whatsoever, nor can they save me? (23) In that case I would surely be in clear error. (24) Verily! I have believed in your Lord, so listen to me!" (25) It was said: "Enter thou the Garden." He said: "Ah me! Would that my People knew (what I know)!- (26) how my Lord has forgiven me and placed me among the honoured ones!" (27) ۞ And We sent not down upon his people, after him, any host out of heaven; neither would We send any down. (28) It was only a single blast which made them extinct. (29) Ah, the anguish for the bondmen! Never came there unto them a messenger but they did mock him! (30) Have they not seen how many generations have We destroyed before them who will not return again? (31) And surely all, every one of them, shall be brought before Us. (32)
