Hizb 45
Juz 23
And propound thou unto them the similitude of the inhabitants of a town, when there came thereto the sent ones. (13) What time We sent unto them two, then they belied the twain, wherefore We strengthened them with a third, and they said: verily we are unto you the sent ones. (14) The (people) said: "Ye are only men like ourselves; and (Allah) Most Gracious sends no sort of revelation: ye do nothing but lie." (15) They said: 'Our Lord knows that we are Messengers 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) [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) At that, a man came running from the farthest end of the city, [and] exclaimed: "O my people! Follow these message-bearers! (20) Follow those who ask of you no fee, and who are rightly guided. (21) Why should I not worship Him who has originated me and to whom you shall all be returned? (22) What! shall I take besides Him gods whose intercession, If the Beneficent Allah should desire to afflict me with a harm, shall not avail me aught, nor shall they be able to deliver me? (23) and so, behold, I would have indeed, most obviously, lost myself in error! (24) Lo! I have believed in your Lord, so hear me! (25) It was said to him, “Enter Paradise”; he said, “If only my people knew!” (26) “The manner in which my Lord has pardoned me and made me of the honoured ones!” (27) ۞ After him We did not send down against his people a host from heaven, nor do We send down such hosts: (28) There was but a single Blast and suddenly they became silent and still. (29) OH, THE REGRETS that [most] human beings will have to bear! Never has an apostle come to them without their deriding him! (30) Have they not seen how many generations have We destroyed before them who will not return again? (31) They will all be brought together before Us. (32)
