11:70 The Messengers of Abraham

1 min read

But when he saw their hands went not towards the (meal), he felt some mistrust of them, and conceived a fear of them. They said: “Fear not: We have been sent against the people of Lut.”

When Abraham saw that the hands of his guests did not extend
to the meal he served, he at once realized that they had come with bad
news. The guests however first gave Abraham the good news that his
barren wife was to bear a son. The details of the bad news were given
later. “Have no fear” ( ف ْخَ َ
ت لا (َrefers to the fear of Abraham before
Allâh, and not from his guests.
