Hizb 53
Juz 27
Have you heard the story of Abraham's honoured guests? (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) So he turned to his household and brought a fattened calf. (26) And placed it before them, (saying): "Will you not eat?" (27) Then he conceived a fear of them. They said: fear not. And they gave him the tidings of a youth knowing. (28) So his wife came screaming, and striking her forehead cried, “What! For a barren old woman?” (29) "Such is the will of your Lord," they replied. "He is the Wise, the All Knowing." (30) ۞ Said he, 'And what is your business, envoys?' (31) They said: Surely we are sent to a guilty people, (32) That we may send down upon them stones of baked clay. (33) marked by your Lord for the sinful' (34) Then We evacuated those of the Believers who were there, (35) But We found there but one house of those surrendered (to Allah). (36) And We kept a sign remaining in it, for those who fear the painful punishment. (37) There is also a Sign for you in the story of Moses when We sent him with a clear authority to Pharaoh. (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 cast them into the sea. He became an object of much blame. (40) And in Ad: When We sent upon them the destructive wind. (41) It spared naught that it reached, but made it (all) as dust. (42) And in [the story of the tribe of] Thamud, too, when they were told, "You shall enjoy your life for [but] a little while," (43) But they rebelled against their Lord's decree, and so the thunderbolt overtook them even while they gazed; (44) for they were unable even to rise, and could not defend themselves. (45) So were the People of Noah before them for they wickedly transgressed. (46)
