Has there reached you the story of the honored 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 went to his home so he brought a healthy calf. (26) He then presented it before them and said, “Do you not eat?” (27) beginning to be afraid of them. But they said, "Don't be afraid"; and they gave him the good news of a son who would be endowed with knowledge. (28) Then came forward his wife, clamouring, and she smote her face, and said, 'An old woman, barren!' (29) They said: "Thus said your Lord. He is indeed all-wise and all-knowing." (30) ۞ Abraham asked, "What is your errand, O messengers?" (31) They said, "Indeed, we have been sent to a people of criminals (32) That we may send upon them stones of clay, (33) Marked in the presence of your Lord for the transgressors." (34) Then we brought forth such believers as were there. (35) We found in it only one household of true believers -- (36) And We left behind therein a portent for those who fear a painful doom. (37) As (there was) in Moses when We sent him to the Pharaoh with clear authority. (38) but he turned his back with his Assembly, saying: 'He is (either) a sorcerer or a mad man' (39) Then We laid hold of him and his hosts and flung them into the sea, and he was reproachable. (40) And [you have the same message] in [what happened to the tribe of] Ad, when We let loose against them that life-destroying wind (41) It left nothing of what it came upon but that it made it like disintegrated ruins. (42) And in Thamud, when We said to them: "Enjoy yourselves for a while;" (43) But they insolently defied the Command of their Lord: So the stunning noise (of an earthquake) seized them, even while they were looking on. (44) they could not stand up again, nor could they defend themselves. (45) And before them the nation of Noah, indeed they were a debauched nation. (46)
