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 do you seek to hasten on the evil before the good? Why do you not ask forgiveness of Allah so that you may be dealt with mercifully? (46) They said: We augur evil of thee and those with thee. He said: Your evil augury is with Allah. Nay, but ye are folk that are being tested. (47) And there were in the city nine family heads causing corruption in the land and not amending [its affairs]. (48) they said, 'Swear you, one to another, by God, "We will attack him and his family by night, then we will tell his protector, We were not witnesses of the destruction of his family; and assuredly we are truthful men."' (49) And they devised a scheme and, without their knowledge, We devised a scheme. (50) Behold, then, what all their scheming came to in the end: We utterly destroyed them and their people, all of them; (51) Those are their houses, all are in ruins because of the evil they committed; surely in this there is a sign for nation who know. (52) and We saved those who believed in and feared God. (53) Lot asked his people, "Do you understandably commit indecency? (54) Do you approach men lustfully instead of women! No, you are an ignorant nation' (55) ۞ Therefore the answer of his people was nothing except that they said, “Expel the family of Lut from your township; these people wish purity!” (56) So We saved him and his family, except for his wife; We destined her to be of those who remained behind. (57) And We showered a rain upon them; so what a wretched rain for those who were warned! (58)
