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) Said [Salih to the erring ones]: Why do you seek to hasten the coming upon you of evil instead of hoping for the good?" Why do you not, rather, ask God to forgive you your sins, so that you might be graced with His mercy?" (46) They said, 'We augur ill of thee and of those that are with thee.' He said, 'Your augury is with God; nay, but you are a people being proved.' (47) There were in the city nine men of a family, who made mischief in the land, and would not reform. (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) And they planned a plan, and We planned a plan, while they perceived not. (50) Behold, then, what all their scheming came to in the end: We utterly destroyed them and their people, all of them; (51) So those are their houses fallen down because they were unjust, most surely there is a sign in this for a people who know. (52) And We saved those who believed and used to fear Allah. (53) (We also sent) Lut (as a messenger): behold, He said to his people, "Do ye do what is shameful though ye see (its iniquity)? (54) What, do you approach men lustfully instead of women? No, you are a people that are ignorant.' (55) ۞ But his people gave no other answer but this: they said, "Drive out the followers of Lut from your city: these are indeed men who want to be clean and 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 upon them a rain; ill was the rain upon the warned. (58)
