Has the story reached you, of the honoured guests [three angels; Jibrael (Gabriel) along with another two] of Ibrahim (Abraham)? (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) Then he went apart unto his housefolk so that they brought a fatted calf; (26) and placed it before them, saying, "Will you not eat?" (27) (When they did not eat), He conceived a fear of them. They said, "Fear not," and they gave him glad tidings of a son endowed with knowledge. (28) Then his wife came forward, making moan, and smote her face, and cried: A barren old woman! (29) 'Such, says your Lord' they replied: 'He is the Wise, the Knower' (30) ۞ [Ibrahim (Abraham)] said: "Then for what purpose you have come, O Messengers?" (31) They said: "We have been sent to a wicked people (32) That we may send down upon them stones of baked clay. (33) "Marked as from thy Lord for those who trespass beyond bounds." (34) We saved the believers among them, (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 a painful punishment. (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 cast them into the sea. Indeed, he was blameworthy. (40) And also in Ad, when We loosed against them the withering wind (41) which spared nothing of what it came upon, but caused [all of] it to become like bones dead and decayed. (42) And in (the tribe of) Thamud (there is a portent) when it was told them: Take your ease awhile. (43) But they disobeyed the command of their Lord; so they were destroyed by a thunderbolt, and they could only gape, (44) and they were not able to stand upright, and were not helped. (45) And before them, We destroyed the people of Nooh; they were indeed a sinning nation. (46)
