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 said: O my people! why do you seek to hasten on the evil before the good? Why do you not ask forgiveness of Allah so that you may be dealt with mercifully? (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) 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 that we will attack Saleh and his family at night, and later tell his heirs: 'We did not see his family destroyed, and we speak the truth.'" (49) So they devised a scheme, and We made our secret plan, and they remained neglectful. (50) So see what was the outcome of the plan they made: We utterly 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) We saved the faithful God-fearing believers. (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 have carnal relations with men rather than women? You are ignorant people". (55) ۞ His people had no answer except saying: "Expel the family of Lot from your city. They are a people who would (rather) be pure!" (56) So We delivered him and his family, except his wife; We decreed she should be of those that tarried. (57) And We rained down on them a rain (of stones). So evil was the rain of those who were warned. (58)
