Hizb 39
Juz 20
And We sent to Thamud their brother Salih (with the Message): "Serve Allah," but all of a sudden they became split into two quarrelling factions. (45) He said, 'O my people, why do you seek to hasten evil before good? Why do you not ask forgiveness of God? Haply so you will find mercy.' (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) 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) 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 yonder are their houses overturned, for they did wrong. Verily, herein is a sign unto a people who know. (52) We deliver those who believe and take heed for themselves. (53) And Lot! when he said unto his folk: Will ye commit abomination knowingly? (54) Must you really approach men with lust instead of women? Nay, but you are people without any awareness (of right and wrong)!" (55) ۞ But this had only one answer from his people. They said: "Expel Lot's folk from your city. They pretend to be absolutely clean." (56) So We delivered him and his family, except his wife; We decreed she should be of those that tarried. (57) We sent to them a terrible rainstorm. How horrible was the rain for the people who had already received warning. (58)
