Hizb 45
Juz 23
And put forward to them a similitude; the (story of the) dwellers of the town, [It is said that the town was Antioch (Antakiya)], when there came Messengers to them. (13) When We sent two of them they called them liars; so We sent a third to strengthen them. "We have been sent to you," they said. (14) The people said, "You are mere mortals like us and the Beneficent God has sent nothing. You are only liars." (15) The Messengers said: “Our Lord knows that we have indeed been sent to you (16) And our duty is only to convey the message to you clearly," (17) They said: Surely we augur evil from you; if you do not desist, we will certainly stone you, and there shall certainly afflict you a painful chastisement from us. (18) They said: 'Your prediction is with you, if you are reminded. Surely, you are but a wayward nation' (19) In the meantime a man came running from the far end of the town, saying: “My people, follow the Messengers; (20) Follow such as ask no wage of you, that are right-guided. (21) "Why should I not worship God who has created me? To him you will all return. (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) Indeed, I would then be in manifest error. (24) Indeed, I have believed in your Lord, so listen to 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) ۞ And We sent not down against his People, after him, any hosts from heaven, nor was it needful for Us so to do. (28) It was only a single blast which made them extinct. (29) How regretful for the servants. There did not come to them any messenger except that they used to ridicule him. (30) Behold they not how many We have destroyed before them of the generations! verily unto them they shall not return. (31) And without exception, all of them will be brought forth before Us. (32)
