AND HAS the story of Abraham's honoured guests ever come within thy ken? (24) When they entered unto him, saying 'Peace!' he said 'Peace! You are a people unknown to me.' (25) Then he turned quickly to his household, brought out a fatted calf, (26) He set it before them, saying: 'Will you not eat' (27) (When they did not eat), He conceived a fear of them. They said, "Fear not," and they gave him glad tidings of a son endowed with knowledge. (28) Thereupon his wife approached [the guests] with a loud cry, and struck her face [in astonishment] and exclaimed: "A barren old woman [like me]!" (29) "Such is the will of your Lord," they replied. "He is the Wise, the All Knowing." (30) ۞ He said: what then is your errand! O ye sent ones! (31) They replied: 'We are sent to a sinful nation, (32) That we may send down upon them stones of baked clay. (33) Sent forth from your Lord for the extravagant. (34) So We brought out from therein the believers. (35) And We found not therein more than one house of the Muslims. (36) And We left there a Sign for such as fear the Grievous Penalty. (37) As (there was) in 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 also evidence of the Truth in the story of Ad whom We struck with a violent wind (41) that left nothing it came upon, but made it as stuff decayed. (42) And in the Thamud (was another Sign): Behold, they were told, "Enjoy (your brief day) for a little while!" (43) Then they turned in disdain from the commandment of their Lord, and the thunderbolt took them and they themselves beholding (44) They were unable even to stand up or protect themselves. (45) (So had We destroyed) the people of Noah before them: They were surely a sinful people. (46)
