Juz 27
Has the story reached you, of the honoured guests [three angels; Jibrael (Gabriel) along with another two] of Ibrahim (Abraham)? (24) When they came to him they said, "Peace!" He answered, "Peace!" [saying to himself]. "They are strangers." (25) Then he turned aside to his family secretly and brought a fat (roasted) calf, (26) And placing it before them said: "Won't you 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) And his wife approached with a cry [of alarm] and struck her face and said, "[I am] a barren old woman!" (29) They said, "Even so has thy Lord spoken: and He is full of Wisdom and Knowledge." (30) ۞ Said [Abraham]: "And what [else] may you have in view, O you [heavenly] messengers?" (31) They said: "We have been sent to a wicked people (32) to loose upon them stones of clay (33) Marked by your Lord for the Musrifun (polytheists, criminals, sinners those who trespass Allah's set limits in evil-doings by committing great sins). (34) So We brought forth such believers as were in it, (35) and We did not find there any, apart from a single house of Muslims (36) We left therein evidence for those who fear the painful torment. (37) And also in Moses, when We sent him unto Pharaoh, with a clear authority, (38) But he turned away with his supporters and said," A magician or a madman." (39) So We seized him and his hosts, and cast them into the sea. He became an object of much blame. (40) And in the 'Ad (people) (was another Sign): Behold, We sent against them the devastating Wind: (41) It left not aught whereon it came but it made it as matter decayed. (42) And in Thamud (there is also a sign), when they were told: "Enjoy yourselves for a while!" (43) But they rebelled against the command of their Lord. So the thunderbolt overtook them while they looked on: (44) they could neither stand up straight, nor were they helped. (45) The people of Noah who lived before them were also evil doing people. (46)
