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) When We (first) sent to them two messengers, they rejected them: But We strengthened them with a third: they said, "Truly, we have been sent on a mission to you." (14) They replied, "You are nothing but mortal men like us and the Merciful God has not revealed anything. You are surely lying." (15) The Messengers said: “Our Lord knows that we have indeed been sent to you (16) And nothing devolves on us but a clear deliverance (of the message). (17) They answered: 'We predict evil of you. If you do not desist, we will stone you and a painful punishment from us will befall you' (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 a man came running from the other side of the city. "O my people," he said, "follow the messengers. (20) Follow those who do not ask for any recompense of you, and are rightly guided. (21) Why should I not worship Him who brought me into being, to whom you will be brought back in the end? (22) What, shall I take, other than Him, gods whose intercession, if the Merciful desires to afflict me, cannot help me at all, and they will never save me? (23) Surely in that case I should be in manifest error. (24) Messengers, listen to me. I believe in your Lord." (25) It was said: enter thou the Garden. He said: would that my people knew. (26) how my Sustainer has forgiven me [the sins of my past,] and has placed me among the honoured 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) nothing was [needed] but one single blast [of Our punishment] - and lo! they became as still and silent as ashes. (29) Alas for My servants! Never does a Messenger come to them but they mock him. (30) What, have they not seen how many generations We have destroyed before them, and that it is not unto them that they return? (31) And surely all, every one of them, shall be brought before Us. (32)
