Hizb 39
Juz 20
And We verily sent unto Thamud their brother Salih, saying: Worship Allah. And lo! they (then became two parties quarrelling. (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 ill of you and those who are with you." Salih replied: "Your augury is with Allah. The truth is that you are a people who are being tried." (47) And there were nine of a group in the city, who spread corruption in the land and rectified not. (48) Swearing by Allah they said to one another, “We will indeed attack him and his family at night, and then say to his heir, ‘We were not present at the time of slaying of this household, and indeed we are truthful.’” (49) Thus they planned and We too planned, the while they did not know. (50) Then see what was the end of their plot!- this, that We destroyed them and their people, all (of them). (51) So those are their houses, desolate because of the wrong they had done. Indeed in that is a sign for people who know. (52) And We delivered those who believed and who guarded (against evil). (53) And tell of Lot. He said to his people, "Will you commit evil knowingly? (54) You lust after men in place of women. You are indeed a stolid people." (55) ۞ But the answer of his people was no other except that they said: Turn out Lut's followers from your town; surely they are a people who would keep 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 on them a rain, and evil was the rain of those who had been warned. (58)
