Juz 27
Hath the story of Abraham's honoured guests reached thee (O Muhammad)? (24) When they came to him, they said: “Peace”; he said: “Peace also be to you; (you seem to be) a group of strangers.” (25) So he turned to his household and brought a fattened calf. (26) He set it before them, saying: 'Will you not eat' (27) Then he conceived a fear about them, and they said: 'Have no fear', and gave him the glad tidings that he was to have a knowledgeable son. (28) So his wife came screaming, and striking her forehead cried, “What! For a barren old woman?” (29) They said: “So has your Lord said (that you shall have a boy). Surely He is Most Wise, All-Knowing.” (30) ۞ Said [Abraham]: "And what [else] may you have in view, O you [heavenly] messengers?" (31) They replied: 'We are sent to a sinful nation, (32) To send down upon them stones of baked clay. (33) Sent forth from your Lord for the extravagant. (34) Thus We brought forth from therein who were believers. (35) But We found there but one house of those surrendered (to Allah). (36) and left therein a sign for those who fear the painful punishment. (37) And in Moosa, when We sent him with a clear proof towards Firaun. (38) But Pharaoh turned away, showing arrogance on account of his power, and said (about Moses): “He is either a sorcerer or a madman.” (39) So We took him and his forces, and threw them into the sea; and his was the blame. (40) There is another sign in the [tribe of] 'Ad, when We sent against them a life-destroying wind (41) It left out nothing in its path, but which it split up into fragments. (42) And in Thamud, when it was said to them, "Enjoy yourselves for a time." (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) they could not stand up again, nor could they defend themselves. (45) [We destroyed] the people of Noah before them. They were certainly a sinful people. (46)
