Juz 20
And indeed We sent to Thamud their brother Salih (Saleh), saying: "Worship Allah (Alone and none else). Then look! They became two parties (believers and disbelievers) quarreling with each other." (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 consider you a bad omen, you and those with you." He said, "Your omen is with Allah. Rather, you 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: 'Let us swear by Allah to attack him and his family at night, then we will tell his guardian we were not witnesses of the destruction of his family; and surely we are truthful' (49) And they devised a scheme and, without their knowledge, We devised a scheme. (50) Then see what was the end of their plot!- this, that We destroyed them and their people, all (of them). (51) Now such were their houses, - in utter ruin, - because they practised wrong-doing. Verily in this is a Sign for people of knowledge. (52) And We delivered those who believed and were wont to fear. (53) And Lut! what time he said unto his people: commit ye indecency while ye see? (54) What! do you indeed approach men lustfully rather than women? Nay, you are a people who act ignorantly. (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) So We delivered him and his family, except his wife; We decreed she should be of those that tarried. (57) We sent to them a terrible rainstorm. How horrible was the rain for the people who had already received warning. (58)
