Hizb 53
Juz 27
Have you heard the story of Abraham's honoured guests? (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) 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) 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 answered: "Thus has thy Sustainer decreed; and verily, He alone is truly wise, all-knowing!" (30) ۞ 'Messengers' said he (Abraham), 'what is your errand' (31) They replied, "We have been sent to a sinful people, (32) To send down upon them stones of clay, (33) Marked by your Lord for those who waste their substance." (34) Then We brought forth such as were therein of the believers. (35) and We did not find there any, apart from a single house of Muslims (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) In Moses, too, (there were signs). We sent him to Pharaoh with clear authority, (38) but he turned his back with his Assembly, saying: 'He is (either) a sorcerer or a mad man' (39) Then We seized him and his army and cast them all into the sea: he himself [Pharaoh] was to blame. (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 the tribe of Thamud when it was told to them, “Enjoy for a while.” (43) But they disobeyed the command of their Lord; so they were destroyed by a thunderbolt, and they could only gape, (44) They were unable to stand up, nor were they helped. (45) And [thus, too, We destroyed] Noah's people aforetime: for they were iniquitous folk. (46)
