Juz 20
And We sent to Thamood their brother Salih: 'Serve you God!' And behold, they were two parties, that were disputing one with another. (45) He said: "O my people! why ask ye to hasten on the evil in preference to the good? If only ye ask Allah for forgiveness, ye may hope to receive mercy. (46) They said: We augur evil of thee and those with thee. He said: Your evil augury is with Allah. Nay, but ye are folk that are being tested. (47) And there were in the city nine men (from the sons of their chiefs), who made mischief in the land, and would not reform. (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) They plotted and We planned without their knowledge. Consider the result of their plot. (50) Now see the end of their machinations: We destroyed them and their entire people. (51) and [now] those dwellings of theirs are empty, [ruined] as an outcome of their evil deeds. In this, behold, there is a message indeed for people of [innate] knowledge (52) And We saved those who believed, and used to fear Allah, and keep their duty to Him. (53) And tell of Lot. He said to his people, "Will you commit evil knowingly? (54) Do you indeed approach men with desire instead of women? Rather, you are a people behaving ignorantly." (55) ۞ Then there was no answer of his people save that they said: drive forth the family of Lut from your City, verily they are a people who would be pure! (56) Then We delivered him and his household save his wife: We destined her to be of the lingerers. (57) And We rained a rain upon them. Dreadful is the rain of those who have been warned. (58)
