Juz 23
And relate to them the signs of the people of the city when two emissaries came to them. (13) When We sent to them two but they denied them, so We strengthened them with a third, and they said, "Indeed, we are messengers 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) They said, 'Our Lord knows we are Envoys unto you; (16) And nothing devolves on us but a clear deliverance (of the message). (17) They said: verily we augur ill of you; if ye desist not, we shall surely stone you, and there will befall you from us a torment afflictive. (18) [The apostles] replied: "Your destiny, good or evil, is [bound up] with yourselves! [Does it seem evil to you] if you are told to take [the truth] to heart? Nay, but you are people who have wasted their own selves!" (19) In the meantime a man came running from the far end of the town, saying: “My people, follow the Messengers; (20) follow those who do not ask any recompense from you and are rightly-guided. (21) "Why should I not worship Him who has brought me into being, and to whom you shall all be recalled? (22) Should I take other than Him [false] deities [while], if the Most Merciful intends for me some adversity, their intercession will not avail me at all, nor can they save me? (23) Indeed, I would then be in manifest error. (24) Verily! I have believed 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) that my Lord has forgiven me, and caused me to be amongst the receivers of generosity' (27) ۞ And We sent not against his people after him a host from heaven, nor do We send (such a thing). (28) There was but a single Blast and suddenly they became silent and still. (29) Alas for human beings! They ridicule every messenger that comes to them. (30) Do they not consider how many of the generations have We destroyed before them, because they do not turn to them? (31) But all, without exception, will be brought before Us. (32)
