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) 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: "We augur ill omen from you and those with you." He said: "Your ill omen is with Allah; nay, but you are a people that are being tested." (47) And there were in the city nine persons who made mischief in the land and did not act aright. (48) They said: "Swear one to another by Allah that we shall make a secret night attack on him and his household, and afterwards we will surely say to his near relatives: 'We witnessed not the destruction of his household, and verily! We are telling the truth.'" (49) And they plotted a plot, and We plotted a plot, while they perceived it not. (50) Then see what was the end of their plot!- this, that We destroyed them and their people, all (of them). (51) These are their houses in utter ruin, for they did wrong. Verily, in this is indeed an Ayah (a lesson or a sign) for people who know. (52) And We delivered those who believed and were wont to avoid disobeying (Allah). (53) And Lut! what time he said unto his people: commit ye indecency while ye see? (54) Would ye really approach men in your lusts rather than women? Nay, ye are a people (grossly) ignorant! (55) ۞ But his people's only answer was this: "Expel [Lot and] Lot's followers from your township! Verily, they are folk who make themselves out to be 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 on them a rain (of stones). So evil was the rain of those who were warned. (58)
