Juz 20
To Thamud We sent their brother Salih. He said, "Serve none but God." But they divided themselves into two factions contending with one another. (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: We have met with ill luck on account of you and on account of those with you. He said: The cause of your evil fortune is with Allah; nay, you are a people who are tried. (47) Now in the city there were nine persons who did corruption in the land, and put not things right; (48) They said: Swear one to another by Allah that we verily will attack him and his household by night, and afterward we will surely say unto his friend: We witnessed not the destruction of his household. And lo! we are truthtellers. (49) So they devised a scheme, and We made our secret plan, and they remained neglectful. (50) We destroyed them and their people altogether. (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 rescued those who accepted faith and used to fear. (53) Lot asked his people, "Do you understandably commit indecency? (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) So We saved him and his family, except his wife. We destined her to be of those who remained behind. (57) and We pelted them with torrential rain. How dreadful that rain was for those who had been warned! (58)
