Section 2

[Yaa-Seen 36:13] And relate to them the signs of the people of the city - when two emissaries came to them.

[Yaa-Seen 36:14] When We had sent two towards them and they denied them both, so We fortified them with a third, and they all said, “Indeed we have been sent to you.”

[Yaa-Seen 36:26] It was said to him, “Enter Paradise”; he said, “If only my people knew!”
