Hizb 53
Juz 27
Has there come to you information about the honored guests of Ibrahim? (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) He went quietly to his wife and returned to his guests with a fat, roasted calf. (26) and placed it before them. "Will you not eat?" he said, (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) "Such is the will of your Lord," they replied. "He is the Wise, the All Knowing." (30) ۞ (Abraham) said: And (afterward) what is your errand, O ye sent (from Allah)? (31) They said: "We have been sent to a people who are Mujrimun (polytheists, sinners, criminals, disbelievers in Allah); (32) To send down upon them stones of clay, (33) Sent forth from your Lord for the extravagant. (34) And in the course of time We brought out [of Lot 's city] such [few] believers as were there: (35) And We found not within them other than a [single] house of Muslims. (36) And We left there a Sign for such as fear the Grievous Penalty. (37) AND IN [the story of Pharaoh and] Moses, too, [We left the same message: for] when We sent him unto Pharaoh with [Our] manifest authority, (38) But he withdrew (confiding) in his might, and said: A wizard or a madman. (39) So We seized him and his hosts and flung them in the sea, for he was reprobate. (40) And in 'Ad (there is also a sign) when We sent against them the barren wind; (41) It spared nothing that it reached, but blew it into broken spreads of rotten ruins. (42) And in [the story of the tribe of] Thamud, too, when they were told, "You shall enjoy your life for [but] a little 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) They were unable to stand up, nor were they helped. (45) And [thus, too, We destroyed] Noah's people aforetime: for they were iniquitous folk. (46)
