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) Salih said, "My people, why do you commit sins so quickly before doing good? Would that you ask forgiveness from God so that perhaps He will have mercy upon you." (46) They said: "Ill omen do we augur from thee and those that are with thee". He said: "Your ill omen is with Allah; yea, ye are a people under trial." (47) And there were in the city nine persons who made mischief in the land and reformed not. (48) They said: 'Let us swear by Allah to attack him and his family at night, then we will tell his guardian we were not witnesses of the destruction of his family; and surely we are truthful' (49) And they plotted a plot, and We plotted a plot, while they perceived it not. (50) Then see how was the end of their plot! Verily! We destroyed them and their nation, all together. (51) So these are their houses fallen flat, the recompense of their injustice; indeed in this is a sign for people who know. (52) And We delivered those who believed and were wont to fear. (53) And Lot! when he said unto his folk: Will ye commit abomination knowingly? (54) Do you approach men lustfully instead of women! No, you are an ignorant nation' (55) ۞ But his people gave no other answer but this: they said, "Drive out the followers of Lut from your city: these are indeed men who want to be clean and pure!" (56) So We saved him and his family, except for his wife; We destined her to be of those who remained behind. (57) And We rained down upon them a rain. It was an evil rain for those who had already been warned. (58)
