Give to them a parable; to the people of the village there came Messengers, (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) But they said: 'You are only humans like ourselves. The Merciful has not sent down anything, your speech is but lies' (15) They answered, “Our Lord knows that surely, without doubt, we have been sent towards you.” (16) who have been sent to you. Our only duty is to preach clearly to you". (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) And there came from the farthest part of the town a man running. He said; O my people! follow the sent ones. (20) Follow such as ask no wage of you, that are right-guided. (21) "It would not be reasonable in me if I did not serve Him Who created me, and to Whom ye shall (all) be brought back. (22) Shall I take beside Him gods when, if the Compassionate should intend me any harm, their intercession will avail me not at all, nor would they save me? (23) In that case I shall most surely be in clear error: (24) "Verily, [O my people,] in the Sustainer of you all have I come to believe: listen, then, to me!" (25) It was said to him, “Enter Paradise”; he said, “If only my people knew!” (26) How my Lord has forgiven me and made me one of those who are honoured!" (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 but one Saihah (shout, etc.) and lo! They (all) were silent (dead-destroyed). (29) Alas for mankind! There never came a Messenger to them but they used to mock at him. (30) Have they not seen how many generations, living before them, had We destroyed and they cannot ever come back to them? (31) And indeed, all of them will yet be brought present before Us. (32)
