Hizb 53
Juz 27
Hast thou received the story of the honoured guests of Abraham? (24) When they entered upon him and said, "[We greet you with] peace." He answered, "[And upon you] peace, [you are] a people unknown. (25) Then he went to his family and came with a fat [roasted] calf (26) He placed it before them. Then he said, "Why are you not eating?" (27) He felt afraid of them; but they said: "Have no fear," and gave him the good news of a wise son. (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, "This is true but your Lord has said, (that you will have a son); He is All-wise and All-knowing". (30) ۞ Abraham asked, "Messengers, what is your task?" (31) They said: Lo! we are sent unto a guilty folk, (32) To send down upon them stones of clay, (33) marked out in thy Sustainer's sight for [the punishment of] such as have wasted their own selves." (34) So We brought out from therein the believers. (35) But We found not there any household of the Muslims except one [i.e. Lout (Lot) and his two daughters]. (36) We left a sign in this for those who fear the grievous punishment, (37) And in Moosa, when We sent him with a clear proof towards Firaun. (38) but he turned his back, with his court, saying, 'A sorcerer, or a man possessed!' (39) So We took him and his soldiers and cast them into the sea, and he was blameworthy. (40) And [you have the same message] in [what happened to the tribe of] Ad, when We let loose against them that life-destroying wind (41) which turned everything it approached into dust. (42) And in Thamud, when We said to them: "Enjoy yourselves for a while;" (43) But they insolently defied the Command of their Lord: So the stunning noise (of an earthquake) seized them, even while they were looking on. (44) So they were not able to rise up, nor could they defend themselves- (45) (So had We destroyed) the people of Noah before them: They were surely a sinful people. (46)
