Juz 27
Hath the story of Abraham's honoured guests reached thee (O Muhammad)? (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 back to his family and brought a fat roasted calf (26) And placed it before them, (saying): "Will you not eat?" (27) [And when he saw that the guests would not eat,] he became apprehensive of them; [but] they said, "Fear not" - and gave him the glad tiding of [the birth of] a son who would be endowed with deep knowledge. (28) So his wife came screaming, and striking her forehead cried, “What! For a barren old woman?” (29) They said: even so saith thine Lord. Verily He! He is the Wise, the Knower. (30) ۞ Said Ibrahim, “What is your task, O the sent angels?” (31) They said, 'We have been sent to a people of sinners, (32) So as to let loose clods of clay on them (33) Marked, from before thy Lord, for the extravagant. (34) So We brought forth such believers as were in it, (35) We found in it only one household of true believers -- (36) And therein We left a sign to those who fear the painful chastisement. (37) And in Moses (too, there is a portent) when We sent him unto Pharaoh with clear warrant, (38) But he turned to his counsellors, and said: "He is a magician or lunatic." (39) Then We seized him and his army and cast them all into the sea: he himself [Pharaoh] was to blame. (40) And in (the tribe of) A'ad (there is a portent) when we sent the fatal wind against them. (41) It spared naught that it reached, but made it (all) as dust. (42) And in the tribe of Thamud when it was told to them, “Enjoy for a while.” (43) after they had turned with disdain from their Sustainer's commandment - whereupon the thunderbolt of punishment overtook them while they were [helplessly] looking on: (44) And neither stand up nor defend themselves. (45) And before them, We destroyed the people of Nooh; they were indeed a sinning nation. (46)
