Juz 27
Has there come to you information about the honored guests of Ibrahim? (24) Behold, they entered his presence, and said: "Peace!" He said, "Peace!" (and thought, "These seem) unusual people." (25) Then he turned quickly to his household, brought out a fatted calf, (26) So he brought it near them. He said: What! will you not eat? (27) Then he conceived a fear of them. They said, 'Be not afraid!' And they gave him good tidings of a cunning boy. (28) Then his wife came up in great grief, and she struck her face and said: An old barren woman! (29) They said: Even so saith thy Lord. Lo! He is the Wise, the Knower. (30) ۞ Said he, 'And what is your business, envoys?' (31) They replied, "We have been sent to a sinful people (32) To send down upon them stones of clay, (33) “That are kept marked, with your Lord, for the transgressors.” (34) Then We evacuated those of the Believers who were there, (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 also was a lesson, when We sent him unto Fir'awn with authority manifest. (38) But [Fir'aun (Pharaoh)] turned away (from Belief in might) along with his hosts, and said: "A sorcerer, or a madman." (39) We seized him and his army and threw them into the sea. He himself was to be blamed. (40) And in the 'Ad (people) (was another Sign): Behold, We sent against them the devastating Wind: (41) It left out nothing in its path, but which it split up into fragments. (42) And in [the story of the tribe of] Thamud, too, when they were told, "You shall enjoy your life for [but] a little while," (43) But they were insolent toward the command of their Lord, so the thunderbolt seized them while they were looking on. (44) and they were not able to stand upright, and were not helped. (45) And [thus, too, We destroyed] Noah's people aforetime: for they were iniquitous folk. (46)
