Hizb 53
Juz 27
Hath the story of Abraham's honoured guests reached thee (O Muhammad)? (24) When they entered upon him, they said: Peace. Peace, said he, a strange people. (25) So he hurried to the house and brought a fatted calf, (26) And placed it before them.. he said, "Will ye not eat?" (27) So he conceived in his mind a fear on account of them. They said: Fear not. And they gave him the good news of a boy possessing knowledge. (28) Then came forward his wife, clamouring, and she smote her face, and said, 'An old woman, barren!' (29) They said, "Thus has said your Lord; indeed, He is the Wise, the Knowing." (30) ۞ Abraham asked, "Messengers, what is your task?" (31) They said: "We have been sent to a people who are Mujrimun (polytheists, sinners, criminals, disbelievers in Allah); (32) to let loose upon them stone-hard blows of chastisement, (33) "Marked as from thy Lord for those who trespass beyond bounds." (34) So We removed the people who had faith, from that town. (35) But We found there but one house of those surrendered (to Allah). (36) We left a sign in this for those who fear the grievous punishment, (37) There is also a Sign for you in the story of Moses when We sent him with a clear authority to Pharaoh. (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) And in (the tribe of) A'ad (there is a portent) when we sent the fatal wind against them. (41) It left nothing of what it came upon but that it made it like disintegrated ruins. (42) And in the tribe of Thamud when it was told to them, “Enjoy for a while.” (43) But they revolted against the commandment of their Lord, so the rumbling overtook them while they saw. (44) And they were unable to rise up, nor could they help themselves. (45) [We destroyed] the people of Noah before them. They were certainly a sinful people. (46)
