Hizb 45
Juz 23
Recount to them the example of the people to whose town Our messengers came. (13) We sent to them two, but they belied them so We reinforced them with a third. They said: 'We have surely been sent as Messengers to you' (14) They said, “You are nothing but mortals like us; the Most Gracious has not sent down anything you are nothing but liars.” (15) They said: Our Lord knows that we are most surely apostles to you. (16) And we are not responsible except for clear notification." (17) (The people of the city) said: We augur ill of you. If ye desist not, we shall surely stone you, and grievous torture will befall you at our hands. (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) Then, from the furthest part of the city, a man came running. He said, "My people, follow the messengers. (20) Follow those who do not ask for any recompense of you, and are rightly 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 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) In that case I shall most surely be in clear error: (24) I believe in your Lord, so listen to me." (25) [And] he was told, "[Thou shalt] enter paradise!" - [whereupon] he exclaimed: "Would that my people knew (26) for what reason Allah has forgiven me and placed me among the honoured ones.” (27) ۞ And We did not send down to his nation after him any army from heaven, neither would We send any down. (28) It was no more than a single mighty Blast, and behold! they were (like ashes) quenched and silent. (29) OH, THE REGRETS that [most] human beings will have to bear! Never has an apostle come to them without their deriding him! (30) Do they not consider how many of the generations have We destroyed before them, because they do not turn to them? (31) All of them, gathered together, will certainly be brought before Us. (32)
