Hizb 53
Juz 27
Hath the story of Abraham's honoured guests reached thee (O Muhammad)? (24) When they came to him saying, "Peace be with you," he replied to their greeting in the same manner and said to himself, "These are a strange people". (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) He therefore inwardly sensed fear of them; they said, “Do not fear!”; and they gave him the glad tidings of a knowledgeable son. (28) So hearing his wife went forth shouting. She struck her face and exclaimed: “A barren old woman am I.” (29) They answered: "Thus has thy Sustainer decreed; and verily, He alone is truly wise, all-knowing!" (30) ۞ [Abraham] said, "Then what is your business [here], O messengers?" (31) They said, "We have been sent to a people (deep) in sin;- (32) That we may send down upon them stones of baked clay. (33) marked by your Lord for the sinful' (34) So We removed the people who had faith, from that town. (35) and We did not find there any, apart from a single house of Muslims (36) And therein We left a sign to those who fear the painful chastisement. (37) As (there was) in Moses when We sent him to the Pharaoh with clear authority. (38) But he turned his back, he and his courtiers, and said, "This is a sorcerer or a madman." (39) We therefore seized him and his army and threw them into the sea, while he was blaming himself. (40) And in the 'Ad (people) (was another Sign): Behold, We sent against them the devastating Wind: (41) It spared naught that it reached, but made it (all) as dust. (42) And in Thamud (there is also a sign), when they were told: "Enjoy yourselves for a while!" (43) But they brazenly disobeyed their Lord's command, and then a sudden chastisement overtook them while they looked on. (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)
