Hizb 53
Juz 27
Hast thou received the story of the honoured guests of Abraham? (24) They entered to him and said: 'Peace' And he replied: 'Peace, you are people unknown to me' (25) Then he went to his family and came with a fat [roasted] calf (26) and he laid it before them saying, 'Will you not eat?' (27) beginning to be afraid of them. But they said, "Don't be afraid"; and they gave him the good news of a son who would be endowed with knowledge. (28) Thereupon his wife approached [the guests] with a loud cry, and struck her face [in astonishment] and exclaimed: "A barren old woman [like me]!" (29) They said: even so saith thine Lord. Verily He! He is the Wise, the Knower. (30) ۞ [Abraham] said, "Then what is your business [here], O messengers?" (31) They said, 'We have been sent to a people of sinners, (32) That we may send down upon them stones of baked clay. (33) They are transgressors in the presence of your Lord". (34) So We brought out whoever was in the cities of the believers. (35) but We found only one Muslim house. (36) We left a sign in this for those who fear the grievous punishment, (37) And in Moses (was another Sign): Behold, We sent him to Pharaoh, with authority manifest. (38) The Pharaoh and his forces turned away from him, saying, "He is either a magician or an insane person". (39) So We took him and his hosts, and dumped them into the sea, while he was to be blamed. (40) And also in Ad, when We loosed against them the withering wind (41) and it destroyed everything over which it passed and reduced it to dust. (42) In the Thamud [there was another sign], when they were told, "Make the most of your lives for a while." (43) Then they turned in disdain from the commandment of their Lord, and the thunderbolt took them and they themselves beholding (44) So they were not able to rise up, nor could they defend themselves- (45) And [thus, too, We destroyed] Noah's people aforetime: for they were iniquitous folk. (46)
