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 came to him, they said: “Peace”; he said: “Peace also be to you; (you seem to be) a group of strangers.” (25) Then he went apart unto his housefolk so that they brought a fatted calf; (26) and he laid it before them saying, 'Will you not eat?' (27) He therefore inwardly sensed fear of them; they said, “Do not fear!”; and they gave him the glad tidings of a knowledgeable son. (28) (Sarah) his wife came with an exclamation and clasped her face, and said: 'Surely, I am a barren old woman' (29) They said: Even so saith thy Lord. Lo! He is the Wise, the Knower. (30) ۞ Abraham said: “Envoys (of Allah), what is your errand?” (31) They said, 'We have been sent to a people of sinners, (32) To send down upon them stones of baked clay. (33) Marked in the presence of your Lord for the transgressors." (34) Then We brought forth such as were therein of the believers. (35) But did not find more than a single family of believers. (36) And We left therein a sign for those who fear the painful punishment. (37) In Moses, too, (there were signs). We sent him to 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) So We seized him and his hosts and hurled them into the sea and he was blamable. (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) There is also evidence (of the Truth) in the story of the Thamud, who were told to enjoy themselves for an appointed time. (43) But they revolted against the commandment of their Lord, so the rumbling overtook them while they saw. (44) They were unable even to stand up or protect themselves. (45) So were the People of Noah before them for they wickedly transgressed. (46)
