Hizb 39
Juz 20
And We verily sent unto Thamud their brother Salih, saying: Worship Allah. And lo! they (then became two parties quarrelling. (45) He said: "O my people! Why do you seek to hasten the evil (torment) before the good (Allah's Mercy)? Why seek you not the Forgiveness of Allah, that you may receive mercy?" (46) They said: We augur evil of thee and those with thee. He said: Your evil augury is with Allah. Nay, but ye are folk that are being tested. (47) Now in the city there were nine persons who did corruption in the land, and put not things right; (48) They said: "Let us swear by God that we will attack Saleh and his family at night, and later tell his heirs: 'We did not see his family destroyed, and we speak the truth.'" (49) Thus they planned and We too planned, the while they did not know. (50) Behold, then, what all their scheming came to in the end: We utterly destroyed them and their people, all of them; (51) So these are their houses fallen flat, the recompense of their injustice; indeed in this is a sign for people who know. (52) We deliver those who believe and take heed for themselves. (53) And Lut! what time he said unto his people: commit ye indecency while ye see? (54) Must you go lustfully to men instead of women? Indeed, you are a people who are deeply ignorant." (55) ۞ But the answer of his people was not except that they said, "Expel the family of Lot from your city. Indeed, they are people who keep themselves pure." (56) Then We delivered him and his household save his wife: We destined her to be of the lingerers. (57) We sent to them a terrible rainstorm. How horrible was the rain for the people who had already received warning. (58)
