Hizb 39
Juz 20
We sent (aforetime), to the Thamud, their brother Salih, saying, "Serve Allah": But behold, they became two factions quarrelling with each other. (45) He urged them, "O my people, why do you wish to hasten on the evil rather than the good? Why do you not ask forgiveness of God, so that you may be shown 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) And there were nine of a group in the city, who spread corruption in the land and rectified not. (48) They said: Swear to each other by Allah that we will certainly make a sudden attack on him and his family by night, then we will say to his heir: We did not witness the destruction of his family, and we are most surely 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 those are their houses fallen down because they were unjust, most surely there is a sign in this for a people who know. (52) And We saved those who believed and used to fear Allah. (53) And (remember) Lout (Lot)! When he said to his people. Do you commit Al-Fahishah (evil, great sin, every kind of unlawful sexual intercourse, sodomy, etc.) while you see (one another doing evil without any screen, etc.)?" (54) Do you lustfully approach men instead of women? Nay, you engage in acts of sheer ignorance." (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) So We saved him and his family, except his wife, whom We decreed should stay behind. (57) And We rained upon them a rain; ill was the rain upon the warned. (58)
