Hath the story of Abraham's honoured guests reached thee (O Muhammad)? (24) When those [heavenly messengers] came unto him and bade him peace, he answered, "[And upon you be] peace!" - [saying to himself,] "They are strangers." (25) So he hurried to the house and brought a fatted calf, (26) He then presented it before them and said, “Do you not eat?” (27) Then he conceived a fear of them. They said: Fear not! and gave him tidings of (the birth of) a wise son. (28) Then his wife came forward, crying and beating her brow. She said, "I am surely a barren, old woman." (29) They said: Thus says your Lord: Surely He is the Wise, the Knowing. (30) ۞ Said he, 'And what is your business, envoys?' (31) They said: Lo! we are sent unto a guilty folk, (32) That we may send down upon them stones of baked clay. (33) Marked, from before thy Lord, for the extravagant. (34) Thus We brought forth from therein who were believers. (35) But We found not there any household of the Muslims except one [i.e. Lout (Lot) and his two daughters]. (36) And We have left there a sign (i.e. the place of the Dead Sea, well-known in Palestine) for those who fear the painful torment. (37) And in Musa: When We sent him to Firon with 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 We cast them into the sea, and he 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) that left nothing it came upon, except that it was ashes. (42) And in (the tribe of) Thamud (there is a portent) when it was told them: Take your ease awhile. (43) after they had turned with disdain from their Sustainer's commandment - whereupon the thunderbolt of punishment overtook them while they were [helplessly] looking on: (44) And they were unable to rise up, nor could they help themselves. (45) And the people of Noah before; surely they were an ungodly people. (46)
