And propound thou unto them the similitude of the inhabitants of a town, when there came thereto the sent ones. (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 naught but mortals like us; the All-merciful has not sent down anything. You are speaking only lies.' (15) They said: Our Lord knows that we are most surely apostles to you. (16) And on us is naught but manifest preaching. (17) The people said, "We have ill omens about you. If you will not desist, we shall stone you and make you suffer a painful torment". (18) The Messengers replied: “Your evil omen is with you. (Are you saying this) because you were asked to take heed? The truth is that you are a people who have exceeded all bounds.” (19) And from the outermost part of the city came a man running; he said, “O my people! Obey those who have been sent.” (20) Follow those who ask of you no fee, and who are rightly guided. (21) "Why should I not worship God who has created me? To him you will all return. (22) "Shall I take besides Him aliha (gods), if the Most Beneficent (Allah) intends me any harm, their intercession will be of no use for me whatsoever, nor can they save me? (23) "Then verily, I should be in plain error. (24) "For me, I have faith in the Lord of you (all): listen, then, to me!" (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) ۞ We did not send an army against his people from the heaven after his death nor did We need to send one. (28) it was but one great blast and they fell down lifeless. (29) Alas for the servants! there comes not to them an apostle but they mock at him. (30) Have they not considered how many generations We destroyed before them - that they to them will not return? (31) And without exception, all of them will be brought forth before Us. (32)
