Juz 20
And We sent to Thamood their brother Salih: 'Serve you God!' And behold, they were two parties, that were disputing one with another. (45) 'My nation' he said, 'why do you wish to hasten evil rather than good? Why do you not ask the forgiveness of Allah, in order that you find mercy' (46) They said: "We augur ill of you and those who are with you." Salih replied: "Your augury is with Allah. The truth is that you are a people who are being tried." (47) Now in the city there were nine persons who did corruption in the land, and put not things right; (48) they said, 'Swear you, one to another, by God, "We will attack him and his family by night, then we will tell his protector, We were not witnesses of the destruction of his family; and assuredly we are truthful men."' (49) So they plotted a plot, and We planned a plan, while they perceived not. (50) Then see how was the end of their plot! Verily! We destroyed them and their nation, all together. (51) Because of their wrongdoing, their houses are in ruins, in that surely there is a sign for people who have knowledge, (52) We saved the faithful God-fearing believers. (53) And Lot, he said to his nation: 'Do you commit indecencies with your eyes open! (54) What, do you approach men lustfully instead of women? No, you are a people that are ignorant.' (55) ۞ His people had no answer but to say, "Expel Lot and his family from the town for they want to be pure." (56) So We saved him and his family, except his wife. We destined her to be of those who remained behind. (57) And We showered a rain upon them; so what a wretched rain for those who were warned! (58)
