Hizb 53
Juz 27
Hast thou received the story of the honoured guests of Abraham? (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 back to his family and brought a fat roasted calf (26) And he set it before them, saying: Will ye not eat? (27) Then he conceived a fear of them. They said, 'Be not afraid!' And they gave him good tidings of a cunning boy. (28) Then came forward his wife, clamouring, and she smote her face, and said, 'An old woman, barren!' (29) They said: Even so saith thy Lord. Lo! He is the Wise, the Knower. (30) ۞ [Ibrahim (Abraham)] said: "Then for what purpose you have come, O Messengers?" (31) They said, “We have been sent towards a guilty nation.” (32) “To throw upon them stones of baked clay.” (33) Sent forth from your Lord for the extravagant. (34) We saved all the faithful in the town. (35) for apart from one [single] house We did not find there any who had surrendered themselves to Us. (36) And We have left there a sign (i.e. the place of the Dead Sea, well-known in Palestine) for those who fear the painful torment. (37) There is another sign in Moses: We sent him to Pharaoh with clear authority. (38) But he turned away with his forces and said: A magician or a mad man. (39) So We seized him and his hosts, and cast them into the sea. He became an object of much blame. (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 not aught whereon it came but it made it as matter decayed. (42) And in Thamood it was said to them: 'Take your enjoyment for awhile' (43) But they disobeyed the command of their Lord; so they were destroyed by a thunderbolt, and they could only gape, (44) Then they were unable to rise up, nor could they help themselves. (45) And the folk of Noah aforetime. Lo! they were licentious folk. (46)
