Juz 27
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, they said: “Peace”; he said: “Peace also be to you; (you seem to be) a group of strangers.” (25) Then he turned aside to his family secretly and brought a fat (roasted) calf, (26) and placed it before them, saying, "Will you not eat?" (27) Then he conceived a fear of them (when they ate not). They said: "Fear not." And they gave him glad tidings of an intelligent son, having knowledge (about Allah and His religion of True Monotheism). (28) Then came forward his wife, clamouring, and she smote her face, and said, 'An old woman, barren!' (29) They said, "Even so has thy Lord spoken: and He is full of Wisdom and Knowledge." (30) ۞ He said: "What is then your business, O messengers?" (31) They said: "We have been sent to a wicked people (32) So as to let loose clods of clay on them (33) marked by your Lord for the sinful' (34) So We brought forth such believers as were in it, (35) We found in it only one household of true believers -- (36) And We left behind therein a portent for those who fear a painful doom. (37) And in Moses [was a sign], when We sent him to Pharaoh with clear authority. (38) But he turned to his counsellors, and said: "He is a magician or lunatic." (39) So We seized him and his hosts and cast them into the sea. Indeed, he was blameworthy. (40) And in the 'Ad (people) (was another Sign): Behold, We sent against them the devastating Wind: (41) It left nothing whatever that it came up against, but reduced it to ruin and rottenness. (42) And in the tribe of Thamud when it was told to them, “Enjoy for a while.” (43) But they revolted against the commandment of their Lord, so the rumbling overtook them while they saw. (44) So they were neither able to stand up, nor were they able to take revenge. (45) And the folk of Noah aforetime. Lo! they were licentious folk. (46)
