Juz 27
Have you heard the story of Abraham's honoured guests? (24) When they came to him saying, "Peace be with you," he replied to their greeting in the same manner and said to himself, "These are a strange people". (25) He went quietly to his wife and returned to his guests with a fat, roasted calf. (26) And placing it before them said: "Won't you eat?" (27) Then he conceived a fear of them. They said: Fear not! and gave him tidings of (the birth of) a wise son. (28) So his wife came screaming, and striking her forehead cried, “What! For a barren old woman?” (29) They said: "Even so says your Lord. Verily, He is the All-Wise, the All-Knower." (30) ۞ [Ibrahim (Abraham)] said: "Then for what purpose you have come, O Messengers?" (31) They said: Surely we are sent to a guilty people, (32) “To throw upon them stones of baked clay.” (33) marked with thy Lord for the prodigal. (34) We saved the believers among them, (35) We therefore found just one house over there that was Muslim. (36) We left therein evidence for those who fear the painful torment. (37) There is also a Sign for you in the story of Moses when We sent him with a clear authority to Pharaoh. (38) But he turned his back, he and his courtiers, and said, "This is a sorcerer or a madman." (39) So We seized him and his hosts, and We cast them into the sea, and he blameworthy. (40) And in 'Ad (there is also a sign) when We sent against them the barren wind; (41) It did not leave aught on which it blew, but it made it like ashes. (42) In the Thamud [there was another sign], when they were told, "Make the most of your lives for a while." (43) But they insolently defied the Command of their Lord, so the Sa'iqah overtook them while they were looking. (44) they could not stand up again, nor could they defend themselves. (45) And the people of Nuh We destroyed aforetime; verily they were a people transgressing. (46)
