Hizb 39
Juz 20
And We had certainly sent to Thamud their brother Salih, [saying], "Worship Allah," and at once they were two parties conflicting. (45) He said: O my people! Why will ye hasten on the evil rather than the good? Why will ye not ask pardon of Allah, that ye may receive 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) And there were in the city nine persons who made mischief in the land and reformed 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) So they devised a scheme, and We made our secret plan, and they remained neglectful. (50) Then see the nature of the consequence of their plotting, for lo! We destroyed them and their people, every one. (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 (We sent) Lut, when he said to his people: What! do you commit indecency while you see? (54) Must you go lustfully to men instead of women? Indeed, you are a people who are deeply ignorant." (55) ۞ His people had no answer except saying: "Expel the family of Lot from your city. They are a people who would (rather) be pure!" (56) We saved (Lot) and his family except his wife who was destined to remain behind. (57) And We rained down upon them a rain. It was an evil rain for those who had already been warned. (58)
