Hizb 53
Juz 27
Did the news of Ibrahim’s honourable guests reach you (O dear Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him)? (24) When those [heavenly messengers] came unto him and bade him peace, he answered, "[And upon you be] peace!" - [saying to himself,] "They are strangers." (25) Then he turned quietly to his household, and brought forth a fat [roasted] calf, (26) and he laid it before them saying, '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) So hearing his wife went forth shouting. She struck her face and exclaimed: “A barren old woman am I.” (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 said: Surely we are sent to a guilty people, (32) to let loose upon them stone-hard blows of chastisement, (33) Marked by thy Lord for (the destruction of) the wanton. (34) So We brought out from therein the believers. (35) for apart from one [single] house We did not find there any who had surrendered themselves to Us. (36) And We have left there a sign (i.e. the place of the Dead Sea, well-known in Palestine) for those who fear the painful torment. (37) And in Musa also was a lesson, when We sent him unto Fir'awn with authority manifest. (38) But he turned away with his supporters and said," A magician or a madman." (39) We seized him and his army and threw them into the sea. He himself was to be blamed. (40) And also in Ad, when We loosed against them the withering wind (41) It left nothing of what it came upon but that it made it like disintegrated ruins. (42) And in Thamood it was said to them: 'Take your enjoyment for awhile' (43) But they brazenly disobeyed their Lord's command, and then a sudden chastisement overtook them while they looked on. (44) So they were not able to stand, nor could they help themselves. (45) And before them the nation of Noah, indeed they were a debauched nation. (46)
