And relate to them the signs of the people of the city when two emissaries came to them. (13) We sent them two Messengers whom they rejected. We supported them by sending a third one who told the people, "We are the Messengers (of God) who have been sent to you". (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 said, "Our Lord knows that we are messengers to you, (16) who have been sent to you. Our only duty is to preach clearly to you". (17) but they answered, "We see an evil omen in you. If you do not stop, we shall certainly stone you, and you will suffer a painful punishment at our hands." (18) They said: 'Your prediction is with you, if you are reminded. Surely, you are but a wayward nation' (19) And there came from the uttermost part of the city a man running. He cried: O my people! Follow those who have been sent! (20) Follow him who does not ask you for reward, and they are the followers of the right course; (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 others besides Him as gods? If the Gracious God should intend me any harm, their intercession will be of no avail, nor can they deliver me. (23) Then truly I should be in error manifest. (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) ۞ And after that, no host out of heaven did We send down against his people, nor did We need to send down any: (28) There was but a single Blast and suddenly they became silent and still. (29) Alas for the servants! there comes not to them an apostle but they mock at him. (30) Have they not seen how many generations We destroyed before them, which will not return to them? (31) They will all be brought together before Us. (32)
