AL-ANKABOOT


وَلَمَّا جَاءَتْ رُسُلُنَا إِبْرَاهِيمَ بِالْبُشْرَىٰ قَالُوا إِنَّا مُهْلِكُو أَهْلِ هَٰذِهِ الْقَرْيَةِ ۖ إِنَّ أَهْلَهَا كَانُوا ظَالِمِينَ ﴿٣١﴾
٣١ - اور جب ہمارے فرشتے ابراہیم کے پاس خوشی کی خبر لے کر آئے تو کہنے لگے کہ ہم اس بستی کے لوگوں کو ہلاک کر دینے والے ہیں کہ یہاں کے رہنے والے نافرمان ہیں .
[29:31] And when Our messengers came to Abraham with the good tidings, they said, "Indeed, we will destroy the people of that Lot's city. Indeed, its people have been wrongdoers."
