Hast thou received the story of the honoured guests of Abraham? (24) When they came to him saying, "Peace be with you," he replied to their greeting in the same manner and said to himself, "These are a strange people". (25) Then he turned to his household, so brought out a roasted calf [as the property of Ibrahim (Abraham) was mainly cows]. (26) and placed it before them, saying, "Will you not eat?" (27) Then he conceived a fear of them. They said: Fear not! and gave him tidings of (the birth of) a wise son. (28) And his wife approached with a cry [of alarm] and struck her face and said, "[I am] a barren old woman!" (29) They said: Even so saith thy Lord. Lo! He is the Wise, the Knower. (30) ۞ [Abraham] said, "Then what is your business [here], O messengers?" (31) They said, 'We have been sent to a people of sinners, (32) "To bring on, on them, (a shower of) stones of clay (brimstone), (33) marked with thy Lord for the prodigal. (34) So We brought the believers out of that they were in. (35) We therefore found just one house over there that was Muslim. (36) And so We left therein a message for those who fear the grievous suffering [which awaits all evildoers]. (37) And in Musa also was a lesson, when We sent him unto Fir'awn with authority manifest. (38) In response, he turned away along with his army and said, “He is a magician or a madman.” (39) So We seized him and his hosts and flung them in the sea, for he was reprobate. (40) And in 'A-ad also was a lesson, when We sent against them the barren wind. (41) It left nothing whatever that it came up against, but reduced it to ruin and rottenness. (42) And in the tribe of Thamud when it was told to them, “Enjoy for a while.” (43) But they brazenly disobeyed their Lord's command, and then a sudden chastisement overtook them while they looked on. (44) Then they could not even stand (on their feet), nor could they help themselves. (45) So were the People of Noah before them for they wickedly transgressed. (46)
