AND HAS the story of Abraham's honoured guests ever come within thy ken? (24) When they came in to him, and said, "Salam, (peace be upon you)!" He answered; "Salam, (peace be upon you)," and said: "You are a people unknown to me," (25) Then he turned aside to his family secretly and brought a fat (roasted) calf, (26) And he set it before them, saying: Will ye not eat? (27) Then he conceived a fear of them. They said: fear not. And they gave him the tidings of a youth knowing. (28) Then his wife came forward with a loud voice, she smote her face, and said: "A barren old woman!" (29) "Such is the will of your Lord," they replied. "He is the Wise, the All Knowing." (30) ۞ Said he, 'And what is your business, envoys?' (31) They replied: “Behold, we have been sent to a wicked people (32) "To bring on, on them, (a shower of) stones of clay (brimstone), (33) Marked, from before thy Lord, for the extravagant. (34) So We brought forth such believers as were in it, (35) We therefore found just one house over there that was Muslim. (36) We left a sign in this for those who fear the grievous punishment, (37) And in Moses (was another Sign): Behold, We sent him to Pharaoh, with authority manifest. (38) But he turned to his counsellors, and said: "He is a magician or lunatic." (39) So We took him and his hosts, and dumped them into the sea, while he was to be blamed. (40) There is also evidence of the Truth in the story of Ad whom We struck with a violent wind (41) It left nothing whatever that it came up against, but reduced it to ruin and rottenness. (42) And in Thamud (there is also a sign), when they were told: "Enjoy yourselves for a while!" (43) They transgressed against the command of their Lord. So a blast of sound struck them and they were unable to do anything but stare. (44) Then they could not even stand (on their feet), nor could they help themselves. (45) [We destroyed] the people of Noah before them. They were certainly a sinful people. (46)
