Juz 27
(O Prophet), did the story of Abraham's honoured guests reach you? (24) When they came to him and said, “Peace”; he answered, “Peace”; and thought, “These people are not familiar.” (25) Then he turned to his household, so brought out a roasted calf [as the property of Ibrahim (Abraham) was mainly cows]. (26) He set it before them, saying: 'Will you not eat' (27) So he conceived in his mind a fear on account of them. They said: Fear not. And they gave him the good news of a boy possessing knowledge. (28) (Sarah) his wife came with an exclamation and clasped her face, and said: 'Surely, I am a barren old woman' (29) They said: "Thus said your Lord. He is indeed all-wise and all-knowing." (30) ۞ (Abraham) said: "And what, O ye Messengers, is your errand (now)?" (31) They said: Lo! we are sent unto a guilty folk, (32) to let loose upon them stone-hard blows of chastisement, (33) marked by your Lord upon those who go beyond the limits.” (34) Thus We brought forth from therein who were believers. (35) But We found not there any household of the Muslims except one [i.e. Lout (Lot) and his two daughters]. (36) And therein We left a sign to those who fear the painful chastisement. (37) And in Musa (Moses) (too, there is a sign). When We sent him to Fir'aun (Pharaoh) with a manifest authority. (38) Then he turned away with his court, and said: a magician or a madman. (39) So We seized him and his hosts, and We cast them into the sea, and he blameworthy. (40) And in Ad: When We sent upon them the destructive wind. (41) that left nothing it came upon, but made it as stuff decayed. (42) And in Samood: When it was said to them: Enjoy yourselves for a while. (43) In response they rebelled against their Lord’s command, so the thunderbolt seized them whilst they were watching. (44) And they were unable to rise up, nor could they help themselves. (45) And [We destroyed] the people of Noah before; indeed, they were a people defiantly disobedient. (46)
