Juz 27
Have you heard the story of Abraham's honoured guests? (24) When they came to him and said, “Peace”; he answered, “Peace”; and thought, “These people are not familiar.” (25) Then he went to his family and came with a fat [roasted] calf (26) And placing it before them said: "Won't you eat?" (27) He began to feel afraid. They said, "Do not be afraid," and then gave him the glad news of the birth of a knowledgeable son. (28) But his wife came forward (laughing) aloud: she smote her forehead and said: "A barren old woman!" (29) They said, "Thus has said your Lord; indeed, He is the Wise, the Knowing." (30) ۞ 'Messengers' said he (Abraham), 'what is your errand' (31) They replied: “Behold, we have been sent to a wicked people (32) to let loose upon them stone-hard blows of chastisement, (33) Marked by your Lord for those who waste their substance." (34) Thus We brought forth from therein who were believers. (35) But We found not there any just (Muslim) persons except in one house: (36) And We left therein a sign for those who fear the painful punishment. (37) AND IN [the story of Pharaoh and] Moses, too, [We left the same message: for] when We sent him unto Pharaoh with [Our] manifest authority, (38) But he turned to his counsellors, and said: "He is a magician or lunatic." (39) We seized him and his hosts, and cast them all into the sea: and [none but Pharaoh] himself was to blame [for what happened]. (40) And in Ad: When We sent upon them the destructive wind. (41) It left nothing of what it came upon but that it made it like disintegrated ruins. (42) And in [the story of the tribe of] Thamud, too, when they were told, "You shall enjoy your life for [but] a little while," (43) But they revolted against the commandment of their Lord, so the rumbling overtook them while they saw. (44) They were unable even to stand up or protect themselves. (45) And the people of Nuh We destroyed aforetime; verily they were a people transgressing. (46)
