Did the news of Ibrahim’s honourable guests reach you (O dear Prophet Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him)?
25 إِذْ دَخَلُوا عَلَيْهِ فَقَالُوا سَلَامًا ۖ قَالَ سَلَامٌ قَوْمٌ مُّنكَرُونَ
When they came to him and said, “Peace”; he answered, “Peace”; and thought, “These people are not familiar.”
26 فَرَاغَ إِلَىٰ أَهْلِهِ فَجَاءَ بِعِجْلٍ سَمِينٍ
Then he went to his home – so he brought a healthy calf.

He then presented it before them and said, “Do you not eat?”
28 فَأَوْجَسَ مِنْهُمْ خِيفَةً ۖ قَالُوا لَا تَخَفْ ۖ وَبَشَّرُوهُ بِغُلَامٍ عَلِيمٍ
He therefore inwardly sensed fear of them; they said, “Do not fear!”; and they gave him the glad tidings of a knowledgeable son.
29 فَأَقْبَلَتِ امْرَأَتُهُ فِي صَرَّةٍ فَصَكَّتْ وَجْهَهَا وَقَالَتْ عَجُوزٌ عَقِيمٌ
So his wife came screaming, and striking her forehead cried, “What! For a barren old woman?”
30 قَالُوا كَذَٰلِكِ قَالَ رَبُّكِ ۖ إِنَّهُ هُوَ الْحَكِيمُ الْعَلِيمُ
They said, “This is how your Lord has decreed; indeed He only is the Wise, the All Knowing.”
31 ۞ قَالَ فَمَا خَطْبُكُمْ أَيُّهَا الْمُرْسَلُونَ
Said Ibrahim, “What is your task, O the sent angels?”
32 قَالُوا إِنَّا أُرْسِلْنَا إِلَىٰ قَوْمٍ مُّجْرِمِينَ
They said, “We have been sent towards a guilty nation.”
33 لِنُرْسِلَ عَلَيْهِمْ حِجَارَةً مِّن طِينٍ
“To throw upon them stones of baked clay.”
34 مُّسَوَّمَةً عِندَ رَبِّكَ لِلْمُسْرِفِينَ
“That are kept marked, with your Lord, for the transgressors.”
35 فَأَخْرَجْنَا مَن كَانَ فِيهَا مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ
So We removed the people who had faith, from that town.
36 فَمَا وَجَدْنَا فِيهَا غَيْرَ بَيْتٍ مِّنَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ
We therefore found just one house over there that was Muslim.
37 وَتَرَكْنَا فِيهَا آيَةً لِّلَّذِينَ يَخَافُونَ الْعَذَابَ الْأَلِيمَ
And We kept a sign remaining in it, for those who fear the painful punishment.
38 وَفِي مُوسَىٰ إِذْ أَرْسَلْنَاهُ إِلَىٰ فِرْعَوْنَ بِسُلْطَانٍ مُّبِينٍ
And in Moosa, when We sent him with a clear proof towards Firaun.
39 فَتَوَلَّىٰ بِرُكْنِهِ وَقَالَ سَاحِرٌ أَوْ مَجْنُونٌ
In response, he turned away along with his army and said, “He is a magician or a madman.”
40 فَأَخَذْنَاهُ وَجُنُودَهُ فَنَبَذْنَاهُمْ فِي الْيَمِّ وَهُوَ مُلِيمٌ
We therefore seized him and his army and threw them into the sea, while he was blaming himself.
41 وَفِي عَادٍ إِذْ أَرْسَلْنَا عَلَيْهِمُ الرِّيحَ الْعَقِيمَ
And in the tribe of A’ad, when we sent a dry windstorm upon them.
42 مَا تَذَرُ مِن شَيْءٍ أَتَتْ عَلَيْهِ إِلَّا جَعَلَتْهُ كَالرَّمِيمِ
It left out nothing in its path, but which it split up into fragments.
43 وَفِي ثَمُودَ إِذْ قِيلَ لَهُمْ تَمَتَّعُوا حَتَّىٰ حِينٍ
And in the tribe of Thamud when it was told to them, “Enjoy for a while.”
44 فَعَتَوْا عَنْ أَمْرِ رَبِّهِمْ فَأَخَذَتْهُمُ الصَّاعِقَةُ وَهُمْ يَنظُرُونَ
In response they rebelled against their Lord’s command, so the thunderbolt seized them whilst they were watching.
45 فَمَا اسْتَطَاعُوا مِن قِيَامٍ وَمَا كَانُوا مُنتَصِرِينَ
So they were neither able to stand up, nor were they able to take revenge.
46 وَقَوْمَ نُوحٍ مِّن قَبْلُ ۖ إِنَّهُمْ كَانُوا قَوْمًا فَاسِقِينَ
And before them, We destroyed the people of Nooh; they were indeed a sinning nation.
47 وَالسَّمَاءَ بَنَيْنَاهَا بِأَيْدٍ وَإِنَّا لَمُوسِعُونَ
And We have built the heaven with hands (the Divine Power), and it is We Who give the expanse.
48 وَالْأَرْضَ فَرَشْنَاهَا فَنِعْمَ الْمَاهِدُونَ
And We made the earth a base, so how well do We lay out!
49 وَمِن كُلِّ شَيْءٍ خَلَقْنَا زَوْجَيْنِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَذَكَّرُونَ
And We created all things in pairs, so that you may ponder.
50 فَفِرُّوا إِلَى اللَّهِ ۖ إِنِّي لَكُم مِّنْهُ نَذِيرٌ مُّبِينٌ
“Therefore rush towards Allah; indeed I am from Him, a clear Herald of Warning towards you.”
51 وَلَا تَجْعَلُوا مَعَ اللَّهِ إِلَٰهًا آخَرَ ۖ إِنِّي لَكُم مِّنْهُ نَذِيرٌ مُّبِينٌ
“And do not appoint other deities along with Allah; indeed I am from Him, a clear Herald of Warning towards you.”
52 كَذَٰلِكَ مَا أَتَى الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِم مِّن رَّسُولٍ إِلَّا قَالُوا سَاحِرٌ أَوْ مَجْنُونٌ
Similarly, whenever a Noble Messenger came to those before them they always said, “He is a magician or a madman.”
53 أَتَوَاصَوْا بِهِ ۚ بَلْ هُمْ قَوْمٌ طَاغُونَ
What! Have they willed this utterance to one another? In fact they are a rebellious people.
54 فَتَوَلَّ عَنْهُمْ فَمَا أَنتَ بِمَلُومٍ
Therefore turn away from them (O dear Prophet Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him), – so there is no blame upon you.
55 وَذَكِّرْ فَإِنَّ الذِّكْرَىٰ تَنفَعُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ
And advise, for advice benefits the Muslims.
56 وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ
And I created the jinns and men, only for them to worship Me.
57 مَا أُرِيدُ مِنْهُم مِّن رِّزْقٍ وَمَا أُرِيدُ أَن يُطْعِمُونِ
I do not ask any sustenance from them, nor wish that they give Me food.
58 إِنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ الرَّزَّاقُ ذُو الْقُوَّةِ الْمَتِينُ
Indeed it is Allah, Who is the Greatest Sustainer, the Strong, the Able.
59 فَإِنَّ لِلَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا ذَنُوبًا مِّثْلَ ذَنُوبِ أَصْحَابِهِمْ فَلَا يَسْتَعْجِلُونِ
And indeed for these unjust is also a turn of punishment, like that of their companions – so they must not ask Me to hasten.
60 فَوَيْلٌ لِّلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِن يَوْمِهِمُ الَّذِي يُوعَدُونَ
So ruin is for disbelievers, from their day – which they are promised.
