Hizb 53
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 entered upon him, they said: Peace. Peace, said he, a strange people. (25) He went quietly to his wife and returned to his guests with a fat, roasted calf. (26) and placed it before them. "Will you not eat?" he said, (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) But his wife came forward (laughing) aloud: she smote her forehead and said: "A barren old woman!" (29) They said: even so saith thine Lord. Verily He! He is the Wise, the Knower. (30) ۞ Said Ibrahim, “What is your task, O the sent angels?” (31) They answered: "Behold, we have been sent unto a people lost in sin, (32) that we may unleash a shower of clay-stones (33) They are transgressors in the presence of your Lord". (34) Then We evacuated those of the Believers who were there, (35) but We found only one Muslim house. (36) And We left therein a sign for those who fear the painful punishment. (37) There is also evidence (of the Truth) in the story of Moses when We sent him to the Pharaoh with clear authority. (38) But [Fir'aun (Pharaoh)] turned away (from Belief in might) along with his hosts, and said: "A sorcerer, or a madman." (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) 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) Then they turned in disdain from the commandment of their Lord, and the thunderbolt took them and they themselves beholding (44) And they were unable to arise, nor could they defend themselves. (45) And the people of Nuh before, surely they were a transgressing people. (46)
