Juz 27
Has the story reached you, of the honoured guests [three angels; Jibrael (Gabriel) along with another two] of Ibrahim (Abraham)? (24) When they entered upon him, they said: Peace. Peace, said he, a strange people. (25) Then he turned away privately unto his household, and brought a calf fatted. (26) And placed it before them.. he said, "Will ye not eat?" (27) Then he became afraid of them. They said: “Fear not,” and announced to him the good news of (the birth of) a boy endowed with knowledge. (28) So hearing his wife went forth shouting. She struck her face and exclaimed: “A barren old woman am I.” (29) They said: "Even so says your Lord. Verily, He is the All-Wise, the All-Knower." (30) ۞ (Abraham) said: And (afterward) what is your errand, O ye sent (from Allah)? (31) They replied: 'We are sent to a sinful nation, (32) to loose upon them stones of clay (33) marked by your Lord upon those who go beyond the limits.” (34) Then we brought forth such believers as were there. (35) and We did not find there any, apart from a single house of Muslims (36) And We left therein a sign for those who fear the painful punishment. (37) And in Moses (too, there is a portent) when We sent him unto Pharaoh with clear warrant, (38) The Pharaoh and his forces turned away from him, saying, "He is either a magician or an insane person". (39) We seized him and his army and threw them into the sea. He himself was to be blamed. (40) And in the 'Ad (people) (was another Sign): Behold, We sent against them the devastating Wind: (41) that left nothing it came upon, but made it as stuff decayed. (42) And in Thamud's also was a lesson, when it was said unto them: enjoy yourselves for a season. (43) In response they rebelled against their Lord’s command, so the thunderbolt seized them whilst they were watching. (44) They were unable to stand up, nor were they helped. (45) And the folk of Noah aforetime. Lo! they were licentious folk. (46)
