Hizb 45
Juz 23
And put forward to them a similitude; the (story of the) dwellers of the town, [It is said that the town was Antioch (Antakiya)], when there came Messengers to them. (13) We sent them two Messengers whom they rejected. We supported them by sending a third one who told the people, "We are the Messengers (of God) who have been sent to you". (14) The (people) said: "Ye are only men like ourselves; and (Allah) Most Gracious sends no sort of revelation: ye do nothing but lie." (15) They answered: Our Lord knoweth that we are indeed sent unto you, (16) who have been sent to you. Our only duty is to preach clearly to you". (17) The people said, "We have ill omens about you. If you will not desist, we shall stone you and make you suffer a painful torment". (18) They said: Your evil augury be with you! Is it because ye are reminded (of the truth)? Nay, but ye are froward folk! (19) And there came running from the farthest part of the town, a man, saying: "O my people! Obey the Messengers; (20) Follow those who ask no reward of you, and themselves are rightly guided! (21) Why should I not serve the One Who created me and to Whom all of you shall be sent back? (22) Shall I take (other) gods in place of Him when, if the Beneficent should wish me any harm, their intercession will avail me naught, nor can they save? (23) In that case I should indeed be in manifest error. (24) I believe in your Lord; so listen to me.” (25) It was said (to him when the disbelievers killed him): "Enter Paradise." He said: "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 upon his people after him any hosts from heaven, nor do We ever send down. (28) It was naught but a single cry, and lo! they were still. (29) How regretful for the servants. There did not come to them any messenger except that they used to ridicule him. (30) Have they not seen how many generations We destroyed before them? They shall never return to them, (31) All of them, gathered together, will certainly be brought before Us. (32)
