Narrate to Them the Example of the People of a Certain Town to Whom the Messengers Came...

Narrate to them the example of the people of a certain town to whom the Messengers came.[13]

At first We sent to them two Messengers, but when they rejected both, We strengthened them with a third and they all said: "Surely we have been sent to you as Messengers."[14] 

But the people replied: "You are but humans like us. The Compassionate (Allah) has revealed nothing; you are surely lying."[15]

They said: "Our Lord knows that we have indeed been sent as Messengers towards you[16] and our only duty is to convey His message plainly."[17] 

The people replied:
"We regard you as an evil omen for us. Desist, or we will either stone you or you will receive from us a painful punishment."[18] 

They said: "Your evil omens lie within yourselves. Do you say this because you are being admonished? Indeed you are a nation of transgressors."[19] 

In the meantime a man came running from the remote part of the City and said: "O my people! Follow these Messengers.[20] Follow the ones who ask no reward of you and are rightly guided."[21]

It would not be justifiable on my part if I do not worship Him Who has created me and to Whom you shall be brought back.[22] Should I take other gods besides Him? If the Compassionate (Allah) should intend to harm me, their intercession will avail me nothing, nor will they be able to save me.[23] If I do so, I would indeed be in manifest error.[24] Surely I believe in your Lord, so listen to me."[25] 

Consequently they killed that man and it was said to him: "Enter paradise." 

He exclaimed: "Would that my people knew that what I know![26] 
How my Lord has granted me forgiveness and included me among the honored ones."[27] 

After that We did not send any army against his people from heaven, nor was it necessary to do so.[28] It was nothing but a single blast and they all became extinct.[29] 

Alas for My bondsmen! Whenever there came to them a Messenger they mocked at him.[30] 
Do they not see how many generations We have destroyed before them who will never return to
them?[31] While each one of them will be brought before Us on the Day of Judgment.[32]

The dead land may serve as a sign for them; We give it life and produce from it grain for them, which they eat.[33] We also produce from it gardens with date-palms and vines, and We cause springs to gush forth from it,[34] so that they may enjoy the fruits thereof. It was not their hands that made all this; should they not then givethanks?[35] 

Glory be to Allah Who created all things in pairs: the plants of the earth, mankind themselves and other living things which they do not know.[36]  Another sign for them is the night; when We withdraw the daylight from it, and behold they are in darkness.[37] The sun runs its course, this course is predetermined for it by the Almighty, the All-Knowing.[38] As for the moon, We have designed phases for it till it again becomes like an old dry palm branch.[39] Neither it is possible for thesun to overtake the moon, nor for the night to outstrip the day: each floats along in its
own orbit.[40] 

Another sign for them is how We carried their race through the flood in the laden ark;[41] and similar vessels We have made for them on which they ride.[42] If We want, We can drown them, and they will have no helper to save them, nor can they be rescued,[43] except through Our mercy and unless We prolong their lives for a while.[44]

The Holy Quran, Surah:Yasin, Verses: 13-44

"Good deeds are not equal to the evil ones. Repel other's evil deeds with your good deeds. You will see that he with whom you had enmity, will become your close friend.
But none will attain this quality except those who patiently endure and none will attain this quality except those who are truly fortunate."

Chapter: 41, Verses 34-35, Al-Quran
