Hizb 53
Juz 27
(O Prophet), did the story of Abraham's honoured guests reach you? (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 to his home so he brought a healthy 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) And his wife approached with a cry [of alarm] and struck her face and said, "[I am] a barren old woman!" (29) They said: "Thus said your Lord. He is indeed all-wise and all-knowing." (30) ۞ Abraham asked, "Messengers, what is your task?" (31) They said, “We have been sent towards a guilty nation.” (32) to loose upon them stones of clay (33) Marked by your Lord for the Musrifun (polytheists, criminals, sinners those who trespass Allah's set limits in evil-doings by committing great sins). (34) And in the course of time We brought out [of Lot 's city] such [few] believers as were there: (35) but We found only one Muslim house. (36) And so We left therein a message for those who fear the grievous suffering [which awaits all evildoers]. (37) As (there was) in Moses when We sent him to the Pharaoh with clear authority. (38) But (Pharaoh) turned back with his Chiefs, and said, "A sorcerer, or one possessed!" (39) So We seized him and his hosts and flung them in the sea, for he was reprobate. (40) And in the 'Ad (people) (was another Sign): Behold, We sent against them the devastating Wind: (41) It spared nothing that it reached, but blew it into broken spreads of rotten ruins. (42) And in Thamud, when it was said to them, "Enjoy yourselves for a time." (43) In response they rebelled against their Lord’s command, so the thunderbolt seized them whilst they were watching. (44) So they were not able to rise up, nor could they defend themselves- (45) And before them, We destroyed the people of Nooh; they were indeed a sinning nation. (46)
