Hizb 45
Juz 23
Set forth to them, by way of a parable, the (story of) the Companions of the City. Behold!, there came messengers to it. (13) When We sent to them two, they rejected both of them, then We strengthened (them) with a third, so they said: Surely we are apostles to you. (14) [The others] answered: "You are nothing but mortal men like ourselves; moreover, the Most Gracious has never bestowed aught [of revelation] from on high. You do nothing but lie!" (15) The Messengers said: "Our Lord knows that we have been sent as Messengers to you, (16) And we are not responsible except for clear notification." (17) The people of the town said: “We believe you are an evil omen for us. If you do not desist, we will stone you or you will receive a grievous chastisement from us.” (18) They said, “Your evil omens are with you! What! You get annoyed for being advised? In fact you are a people who transgress the limits!” (19) In the meantime a man came running from the far end of the town, saying: “My people, follow the Messengers; (20) Follow those who do not ask for any recompense of you, and are rightly guided. (21) "Why should I not worship Him who has brought me into being, and to whom you shall all be recalled? (22) Should I take to worshipping [other] deities beside Him? [But then,] if the Most Gracious should will that harm befall me, their intercession could not in the least avail me, nor could they save me: (23) Surely in that case I should indeed be in evident error. (24) Messengers, listen to me. I believe in your Lord." (25) (Having been murdered by the disbelievers) he was told to enter paradise (26) that my Lord has forgiven me and that He has placed me among the honoured.' (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 one Shout and they were silent, still. (29) And it was said, “Woe to those bondmen whenever a Noble Messenger comes to them, they mock at him!” (30) Are they not aware of how many a generation We have destroyed before their time, [and] that those [that have perished] will never return to them, (31) They will all be brought into Our presence together. (32)
