Hizb 45
Juz 23
Recite to them, as a case in point, the story of the people of the town when the Messengers came to them. (13) when We sent unto them two men, but they cried them lies, so We sent a third as reinforcement. They said, 'We are assuredly Envoys unto you. (14) They said, "You are not but human beings like us, and the Most Merciful has not revealed a thing. You are only telling lies." (15) They said: 'Our Lord knows that we are Messengers to you. (16) And we are not responsible except for clear notification." (17) They (the people of the city) said, “We think you are ominous; indeed, if you do not desist, we shall surely stone you to death, and you will surely face a grievous torture at our hands.” (18) They said, "Your omen is with yourselves. Is it because you were reminded? Rather, you are a transgressing people." (19) And there came from the farthest end of the city a man, running. He said, "O my people, follow the messengers. (20) "Obey those who ask no reward of you (for themselves), and who have themselves received Guidance. (21) And what aileth me that I should not worship Him who hath created me, and unto whom ye shall be returned. (22) Shall I take others besides Him as gods? If the Gracious God should intend me any harm, their intercession will be of no avail, nor can they deliver me. (23) Surely in that case I should indeed be in evident error. (24) Lo! I have believed in your Lord, so hear me! (25) [And] he was told, "[Thou shalt] enter paradise!" - [whereupon] he exclaimed: "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 that, no host out of heaven did We send down against his people, nor did We need to send down any: (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) 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)
