Hizb 45
Juz 23
Tell them the story of the people of the town to whom Messengers came. (13) Lo! We sent unto them two [apostles,] and they gave the lie to both; and so We strengthened [the two] with a third; and thereupon they said: "Behold, we have been sent unto you [by God]!" (14) They (people of the town) said: "You are only human beings like ourselves, and the Most Beneficent (Allah) has revealed nothing, you are only telling lies." (15) They said: "Our Lord doth know that we have been sent on a mission to you: (16) and our duty is no more than to clearly 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) [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 a man came running from the other side of the city. "O my people," he said, "follow the messengers. (20) "Obey those who ask no wages of you (for themselves), and who 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 take, apart from Him, gods whose intercession, if the All-merciful desires affliction for me, shall not avail me anything, and who will never deliver me? (23) "I would indeed, if I were to do so, be in manifest Error. (24) Behold, I believe in your Lord; therefore hear me!' (25) It was said (unto him): Enter paradise. He said: Would that my people knew (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) And it was said, “Woe to those bondmen whenever a Noble Messenger comes to them, they mock at him!” (30) Have they not seen how many generations We destroyed before them? They shall never return to them, (31) all shall be arraigned before Us. (32)
