Hizb 39
Juz 20
And We sent to Thamud their brother Salih (with the Message): "Serve Allah," but all of a sudden they became split into two quarrelling factions. (45) (Saleh) said: "O people, why do you wish to hasten evil rather than good? Why not ask for God's forgiveness? You may well be forgiven." (46) They said, “We consider you an evil omen, and your companions”; he said, “Your evil omen is with Allah in fact you people have fallen into trial.” (47) Now there were in the city nine men who were wont to commit deeds of depravity all over the land, and would not reform; (48) They said, "Let us swear by God to do away with him and his family during the night then tell his guardian that we did not see how he and his family had been destroyed, and we shall be telling the truth." (49) So they plotted a plot, and We planned a plan, while they perceived not. (50) See, then, what the consequences of their plan were. We destroyed them and their people utterly, all together. (51) and [now] those dwellings of theirs are empty, [ruined] as an outcome of their evil deeds. In this, behold, there is a message indeed for people of [innate] knowledge (52) And We saved those who believed, and used to fear Allah, and keep their duty to Him. (53) And Lot, he said to his nation: 'Do you commit indecencies with your eyes open! (54) Do you have carnal relations with men rather than women? You are ignorant people". (55) ۞ But the answer of his people was no other except that they said: Turn out Lut's followers from your town; surely they are a people who would keep pure! (56) So We saved him and his family, except for his wife; We destined her to be of those who remained behind. (57) We sent to them a terrible rainstorm. How horrible was the rain for the people who had already received warning. (58)
