Hizb 53
Juz 27
(O Prophet), did the story of Abraham's honoured guests reach you? (24) When they came in to him, and said, "Salam, (peace be upon you)!" He answered; "Salam, (peace be upon you)," and said: "You are a people unknown to me," (25) Then he turned to his household and brought a fattened calf, (26) And he set it before them, saying: Will ye 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) Then his wife came forward, making moan, and smote her face, and cried: A barren old woman! (29) They said: "Thus said your Lord. He is indeed all-wise and all-knowing." (30) ۞ Abraham said: “Envoys (of Allah), what is your errand?” (31) They replied, "We have been sent to a sinful people, (32) "To bring on, on them, (a shower of) stones of clay (brimstone), (33) marked by your Lord upon those who go beyond the limits.” (34) Then We brought forth such as were therein of the believers. (35) We therefore found just one house over there that was Muslim. (36) And We left therein a sign for those who fear the afflictive torment. (37) And also in Moses, when We sent him unto Pharaoh, with a clear authority, (38) but he turned his back with his Assembly, saying: 'He is (either) a sorcerer or a mad man' (39) So We took him and his hosts, and dumped them into the sea, while he was to be blamed. (40) There is also evidence of the Truth in the story of Ad whom We struck with a violent wind (41) It spared naught that it reached, but made it (all) as dust. (42) And in Thamud, when it was said to them, "Enjoy yourselves for a time." (43) But they insolently defied the Command of their Lord, so the Sa'iqah overtook them while they were looking. (44) Then they were unable to rise up, nor could they help themselves. (45) (So were) the people of Nuh (Noah) before them. Verily, they were a people who were Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah). (46)
