Hizb 39
Juz 20
And assuredly We sent unto the Thamud their brother Saleh saying: worship Allah. Then lo! they became two parties contending. (45) He said, "O my people, why are you impatient for evil instead of good? Why do you not seek forgiveness of Allah that you may 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) There were in that city nine persons who spread disorder in the land, and did not reform. (48) They said: "Swear to one another in the name of Allah that we shall make a sudden night swoop on Salih and his family and will then tell their heirs that we did not witness the destruction of his family. We are indeed truthful." (49) And so they devised an evil scheme; but We devised a subtle scheme (of Our own), and they perceived it not. (50) Then look how was the outcome of their plan - that We destroyed them and their people, all. (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 and used to fear Allah. (53) And [mention] Lot, when he said to his people, "Do you commit immorality while you are seeing? (54) "Do you approach men in your lusts rather than women? Nay, but you are a people who behave senselessly." (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) We therefore rescued him and his family, except his wife; We had decreed that she is of those who will remain behind. (57) And We rained on them a rain; and evil indeed is the rain of them that are warned. (58)
