Have you heard the story of Abraham's honored guests? (24) When they came to him, they said: "Peace." He answered: "Peace." They were a people he did not recognise. (25) Then he went back to his family and brought a fat roasted calf (26) and placed it before them. "Will you not eat?" he said, (27) Then he conceived a fear of them (when they ate not). They said: "Fear not." And they gave him glad tidings of an intelligent son, having knowledge (about Allah and His religion of True Monotheism). (28) Then his wife came forward, making moan, and smote her face, and cried: A barren old woman! (29) They said, “This is how your Lord has decreed; indeed He only is the Wise, the All Knowing.” (30) ۞ 'Messengers' said he (Abraham), 'what is your errand' (31) They answered: "Behold, we have been sent unto a people lost in sin, (32) That we may send down upon them stone of clay, (33) marked by your Lord upon those who go beyond the limits.” (34) Thus We brought forth from therein who were believers. (35) And We found not within them other than a [single] house of Muslims. (36) And so We left therein a message for those who fear the grievous suffering [which awaits all evildoers]. (37) And in Moses (too, there is a portent) when We sent him unto Pharaoh with clear warrant, (38) But Pharaoh turned away, showing arrogance on account of his power, and said (about Moses): “He is either a sorcerer or a madman.” (39) So We seized him and his hosts, and cast them into the sea. He became an object of much blame. (40) There is also evidence of the Truth in the story of Ad whom We struck with a violent wind (41) that left nothing it came upon, but made it as stuff decayed. (42) And also in Thamood, when it was said to them, 'Take your enjoyment for a while!' (43) But they disobeyed the command of their Lord; so they were destroyed by a thunderbolt, and they could only gape, (44) They were unable to stand up, nor were they helped. (45) [We destroyed] the people of Noah before them. They were certainly a sinful people. (46)
