Hizb 39
Juz 20
And We had certainly sent to Thamud their brother Salih, [saying], "Worship Allah," and at once they were two parties conflicting. (45) He said, “O my people, why do you hasten upon the evil before the good? Why do you not seek forgiveness from Allah? Perhaps there may be mercy upon you.” (46) They said: "Ill omen do we augur from thee and those that are with thee". He said: "Your ill omen is with Allah; yea, ye are a people under trial." (47) And there were in the city nine family heads causing corruption in the land and not amending [its affairs]. (48) They said, "Take a mutual oath by Allah that we will kill him by night, he and his family. Then we will say to his executor, 'We did not witness the destruction of his family, and indeed, we are truthful.' " (49) So they devised a scheme, and We made our secret plan, and they remained neglectful. (50) Then see what was the end of their plot!- this, that We 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) And We delivered those who believed and were godfearing. (53) And [mention] Lot, when he said to his people, "Do you commit immorality while you are seeing? (54) Must you go lustfully to men instead of women? Indeed, you are a people who are deeply ignorant." (55) ۞ The only answer of his people was, "Drive out Lot and his family from the city. They are a people who make themselves out to be pure." (56) Eventually We saved (Lot) and his family, except his wife. We had decreed that she should be among those who would remain behind. (57) And We rained a rain upon them. Dreadful is the rain of those who have been warned. (58)
