AND HAS the story of Abraham's honoured guests ever come within thy ken? (24) When they entered upon him and said, "[We greet you with] peace." He answered, "[And upon you] peace, [you are] a people unknown. (25) Then he turned quickly to his household, and brought a fatted calf, (26) And placed it before them.. he said, "Will ye not eat?" (27) So he conceived in his mind a fear on account of them. They said: Fear not. And they gave him the good news of a boy possessing knowledge. (28) His wife came forward, crying and beating her face, saying, "I am an old barren woman!" (29) They said, 'So says thy Lord; He is the All-wise, the All-knowing.' (30) ۞ Abraham asked, "What is your errand, O messengers?" (31) They replied, "We have been sent to a sinful people (32) To send down upon them stones of baked clay. (33) Sent forth from your Lord for the extravagant. (34) Then We evacuated there from all the believers (35) but We found not therein except one house of those that have surrendered themselves. (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 We cast them into the sea, and he blameworthy. (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 in (the tribe of) Thamud (there is a portent) when it was told them: Take your ease awhile. (43) Then they turned in disdain from the commandment of their Lord, and the thunderbolt took them and they themselves beholding (44) They were unable to stand up, nor were they helped. (45) Before all these We destroyed the people of Noah: they were a wicked people. (46)
