Hizb 39
Juz 20
We sent to Thamud their brother Saleh (who said): "Worship God." But they were divided into two groups disputing with one another. (45) Salih said: "My people, why do you wish to hasten that evil rather than good should come upon you? Why should you not seek pardon from Allah so that mercy be shown to you?" (46) They said, 'We augur ill of thee and of those that are with thee.' He said, 'Your augury is with God; nay, but you are a people being proved.' (47) There were in the city nine men who spread corruption in the land, and would not reform. (48) They said, "Let us swear by God to do away with him and his family during the night then tell his guardian that we did not see how he and his family had been destroyed, and we shall be telling the truth." (49) And they plotted a plot, and We plotted a plot, while they perceived it not. (50) So behold thou how was the end of their plotting: verily We annihilated them and their nation all together. (51) Now behold their houses that lie in utter ruins because of their wrong-doing. Verily there is a Sign in this for the people who know. (52) seeing that We saved those who had attained to faith and were conscious of Us, (53) We also sent Lot, and recall when he told his people: "Do you commit shameless acts with your eyes open? (54) Would ye go in lustfully unto men instead of women? Aye! ye are a people addicted to ignorant ways. (55) ۞ Therefore the answer of his people was nothing except that they said, “Expel the family of Lut from your township; these people wish purity!” (56) So We saved him and his family except his wife who was destined to stay behind. (57) And We rained down on them a rain (of stones). So evil was the rain of those who were warned. (58)
