Hizb 53
Juz 27
Has there reached you the story of the honored guests of Abraham? - (24) When they entered upon him, they said: Peace. Peace, said he, a strange people. (25) He went quietly to his wife and returned to his guests with a fat, roasted calf. (26) And he set it before them, and said: wherefore eat ye not? (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) 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: “So has your Lord said (that you shall have a boy). Surely He is Most Wise, All-Knowing.” (30) ۞ (Abraham) said: "And what, O ye Messengers, is your errand (now)?" (31) They replied: “Behold, we have been sent to a wicked people (32) so that we bring down stones of clay upon them (33) marked by your Lord for the sinful' (34) Then We evacuated there from all the believers (35) We therefore found just one house over there that was Muslim. (36) And We left behind therein a portent for those who fear a painful doom. (37) There is also evidence (of the Truth) in the story of Moses when We sent him to the Pharaoh with clear authority. (38) The Pharaoh and his forces turned away from him, saying, "He is either a magician or an insane person". (39) Then We laid hold of him and his hosts and flung them into the sea, and he was reproachable. (40) There is also a Sign for you in (the story of) Ad, when We let loose upon them an ominous wind (41) It spared nothing that it reached, but blew it into broken spreads of rotten ruins. (42) And also in Thamood, when it was said to them, 'Take your enjoyment for a while!' (43) But they disobeyed the command of their Lord; so they were destroyed by a thunderbolt, and they could only gape, (44) They were unable to stand up, nor were they helped. (45) And the people of Nuh before, surely they were a transgressing people. (46)
