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) 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) 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 have been sent to you. (16) but we are not bound to do more than clearly deliver the message [entrusted to us]." (17) They said: verily we augur ill of you; if ye desist not, we shall surely stone you, and there will befall you from us a torment afflictive. (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, from the furthest part of the city, a man came running. He said, "My people, follow the messengers. (20) Follow such as ask no wage of you, that are right-guided. (21) "And why should I not worship Him (Allah Alone) Who has created me and to Whom you shall be returned. (22) “What! Shall I appoint Gods other than Allah? So that if the Most Gracious should wish me any harm, their intercession would be of no use to me, nor would they be able to save me?” (23) Surely in that case I should indeed be in evident error. (24) Indeed, I have believed in your Lord, so listen to me." (25) It was said: enter thou the Garden. He said: would that my people knew. (26) Of that on account of which my Lord has forgiven me and made me of the honored ones! (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) There was just one blast, and they were extinguished. (29) How regretful for the servants. There did not come to them any messenger except that they used to ridicule him. (30) Have they not seen how many generations We destroyed before them? They shall never return to them, (31) And indeed, all of them will yet be brought present before Us. (32)
