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) But they said: 'You are only humans like ourselves. The Merciful has not sent down anything, your speech is but lies' (15) They said: "Our Lord doth know that we have been sent on a mission to you: (16) "And our duty is only to convey plainly (the Message)." (17) They (people) said: "For us, we see an evil omen from you, if you cease not, we will surely stone you, and a painful torment will touch you from us." (18) They said, "Your omen is with yourselves. Is it because you were reminded? Rather, you are a transgressing people." (19) Then a man came running from the other side of the city. "O my people," he said, "follow the messengers. (20) "Obey those who ask no reward of you (for themselves), and who have themselves received Guidance. (21) And why should I not worship He who created me and to whom you will be returned? (22) What! shall I take besides Him gods whose intercession, If the Beneficent Allah should desire to afflict me with a harm, shall not avail me aught, nor shall they be able to deliver me? (23) In that case I shall most surely be in clear error: (24) Indeed, I have believed in your Lord, so listen to me." (25) It was said: Enter the garden. He said: O would that my people had known (26) Of that on account of which my Lord has forgiven me and made me of the honored ones! (27) ۞ And after him, We did not send down any army from heaven against his people, nor did We intend to send down an army. (28) It was just one scream, and with it they were extinguished. (29) Alas for the servants! there comes not to them an apostle but 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) All of them, gathered together, will certainly be brought before Us. (32)
