Section 6

[Qasas 28:51] And We indeed sent down the Word continuously for them, so that they may ponder.

[Qasas 28:52] Those to whom We gave the Book before it, accept faith in it. (Some scholars among Jews / Christians).

[Qasas 28:53] And when these verses are recited to them, they say, “We accept faith in it - indeed it is the Truth from our Lord – and indeed we had surrendered even before this.”

[Qasas 28:54] They will be given double the reward, the recompense of their patience – and they repel evil with good, and spend part of what We have provided them.

[Qasas 28:55] And when they hear indecent speech, they ignore it and say, “For us are our deeds and for you are your deeds; peace be upon you (good bye); we are not interested in the ignorant.”

[Qasas 28:56] Indeed it is not such that you can guide whomever you love, but Allah guides whomever He wills; and He well knows the people upon guidance.

[Qasas 28:57] And they say, “If we follow the guidance along with you, people would snatch us away from our land”; did We not establish them in a safe Sacred Land, towards which are brought fruits of all kinds – the sustenance from Us? But most of them do not know.

[Qasas 28:58] And how many towns did We destroy which had stooped to self indulgence! So here lie their dwellings, uninhabited after them except a little; and only We are the Inheritors.

[Qasas 28:59] And never does your Lord destroy towns until He sends a Noble Messenger to their principal town, reciting Our verses to them; and We never destroy towns unless its people are unjust.
