Hizb 39
Juz 20
We sent to the tribe of Thamud their brother Salih so that they would worship God, but they became two quarrelling groups. (45) He said: O my people! Why will ye hasten on the evil rather than the good? Why will ye not ask pardon of Allah, that ye may receive mercy. (46) They said: we augur ill of thee and of those who are with thee. He said: your augury is with Allah. Aye! ye are a people being tested. (47) And there were nine persons in the city who used to cause turmoil in the land and did not wish reform. (48) They said, "Take a mutual oath by Allah that we will kill him by night, he and his family. Then we will say to his executor, 'We did not witness the destruction of his family, and indeed, we are truthful.' " (49) So they plotted a plot: and We plotted a plot, while they perceived not. (50) We destroyed them and their people altogether. (51) So these their habitations lie deserted now because of their iniquities. Verily there is a sign in this for those who understand. (52) We saved the faithful God-fearing believers. (53) And tell of Lot. He said to his people, "Will you commit evil knowingly? (54) “What! You lustfully go towards men, leaving the women?! In fact, you are an ignorant people.” (55) ۞ Yet the only answer of his nation was that they said: 'Expel the family of Lot from your village, they are people who purified themselves' (56) Eventually We saved (Lot) and his family, except his wife. We had decreed that she should be among those who would remain behind. (57) And We showered a rain upon them; so what a wretched rain for those who were warned! (58)
