Hizb 53
Juz 27
(O Prophet), did the story of Abraham's honoured guests reach you? (24) When they entered upon him and said, "[We greet you with] peace." He answered, "[And upon you] peace, [you are] a people unknown. (25) So he turned to his household and brought a fattened calf. (26) He placed it before them. Then he said, "Why are you not eating?" (27) Then he conceived a fear of them. They said: Fear not! and gave him tidings of (the birth of) a wise son. (28) Then his wife came up in great grief, and she struck her face and said: An old barren woman! (29) They said, “This is how your Lord has decreed; indeed He only is the Wise, the All Knowing.” (30) ۞ Said he, 'And what is your business, envoys?' (31) They said: "We have been sent to a people who are Mujrimun (polytheists, sinners, criminals, disbelievers in Allah); (32) so that we may bring down upon them a shower of stones of clay, (33) Sent forth from your Lord for the extravagant. (34) So We evacuated everyone who was a believer there, (35) and We did not find there any, apart from a single house of Muslims (36) And We left therein a sign for those who fear the painful punishment. (37) And in Moses (too, there is a portent) when We sent him unto Pharaoh with clear warrant, (38) But Pharaoh turned away, showing arrogance on account of his power, and said (about Moses): “He is either a sorcerer or a madman.” (39) So We seized him and his hosts, and We cast them into the sea, and he blameworthy. (40) And also in Ad, when We loosed against them the withering wind (41) and it destroyed everything over which it passed and reduced it to dust. (42) And in the tribe of Thamud when it was told to them, “Enjoy for a while.” (43) Then they disdained the command of their Lord; wherefore the bolt laid hold of them even while they looked on. (44) Then they were unable to rise up, nor could they help themselves. (45) (So had We destroyed) the people of Noah before them: They were surely a sinful people. (46)
