Hizb 39
Juz 20
We sent to Thamud their brother Saleh (who said): "Worship God." But they were divided into two groups disputing with one another. (45) (Saleh) said: "O people, why do you wish to hasten evil rather than good? Why not ask for God's forgiveness? You may well be forgiven." (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) There were in the city nine men who spread corruption in the land, and would not reform. (48) They said, "Let us swear by God to do away with him and his family during the night then tell his guardian that we did not see how he and his family had been destroyed, and we shall be telling the truth." (49) They hatched up the plot; We also planned without their knowledge. (50) Behold, then, what all their scheming came to in the end: We utterly destroyed them and their people, all of them; (51) Because of their wrongdoing, their houses are in ruins, in that surely there is a sign for people who have knowledge, (52) And We delivered those who believed and were wont to avoid disobeying (Allah). (53) And (We sent) Lut, when he said to his people: What! do you commit indecency while you see? (54) “What! You lustfully go towards men, leaving the women?! In fact, you are an ignorant people.” (55) ۞ The only answer of his people was, "Drive out Lot and his family from the city. They are a people who make themselves out to be pure." (56) Thereupon We saved him and his household - all but his wife, whom We willed to be among those that stayed behind (57) And we rained on them a rain (of stones); indeed it is an evil rain that rains on those that are warned. (58)
