Hizb 53
Juz 27
Did the news of Ibrahim’s honourable guests reach you (O dear Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him)? (24) Behold, they entered his presence, and said: "Peace!" He said, "Peace!" (and thought, "These seem) unusual people." (25) Then he went to his family and came with a fat [roasted] calf (26) He then presented it before them and said, “Do you not eat?” (27) He felt afraid of them; but they said: "Have no fear," and gave him the good news of a wise son. (28) His wife came out lamenting, striking her forehead, and said: "I, am old and barren woman?" (29) They said, "Even so has thy Lord spoken: and He is full of Wisdom and Knowledge." (30) ۞ Abraham said: “Envoys (of Allah), what is your errand?” (31) They said, 'We have been sent to a people of sinners, (32) To send down upon them stones of clay, (33) Marked by your Lord for those who waste their substance." (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 the grievous chastisement. (37) There is also evidence (of the Truth) in the story of Moses when We sent him to the Pharaoh with clear authority. (38) and he turned away in [the pride of] his power and said, "A sorcerer [is this Moses,] or a madman!" (39) So We took him and his hosts, and dumped them into the sea, while he was to be blamed. (40) There is another sign in the [tribe of] 'Ad, when We sent against them a life-destroying wind (41) that left nothing that it came upon without reducing it to rubble. (42) And in Thamud, when We said to them: "Enjoy yourselves for a while;" (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) Then they were unable to rise up, nor could they help themselves. (45) And before them the nation of Noah, indeed they were a debauched nation. (46)
