Hizb 53
Juz 27
Has the story reached you, of the honoured guests [three angels; Jibrael (Gabriel) along with another two] of Ibrahim (Abraham)? (24) Behold, they entered his presence, and said: "Peace!" He said, "Peace!" (and thought, "These seem) unusual people." (25) Then he turned to his household and brought a fattened calf, (26) He placed it before them. Then he said, "Why are you not eating?" (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) Then his wife came forward, making moan, and smote her face, and cried: A barren old woman! (29) They said: “So has your Lord said (that you shall have a boy). Surely He is Most Wise, All-Knowing.” (30) ۞ Abraham asked, "What is your errand, O messengers?" (31) They replied: 'We are sent to a sinful nation, (32) That we may send down upon them stones of baked clay. (33) marked by your Lord upon those who go beyond the limits.” (34) Then we brought forth such believers as were there. (35) but We found only one Muslim house. (36) And therein We left a sign to those who fear the painful chastisement. (37) There is also evidence (of the Truth) in the story of Moses when We sent him to the Pharaoh with clear authority. (38) Then he turned away with his court, and said: a magician or a madman. (39) So We seized him and his hosts and cast them into the sea. Indeed, he was blameworthy. (40) And in 'Aad [was a sign], when We sent against them the barren wind. (41) It left out nothing in its path, but which it split up into fragments. (42) And in Thamud (there is also a sign), when they were told: "Enjoy yourselves 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) they could neither stand up straight, nor were they helped. (45) And the people of Noah before; surely they were an ungodly people. (46)
