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) He said: "O my people! Why do you seek to hasten the evil (torment) before the good (Allah's Mercy)? Why seek you not the Forgiveness of Allah, that you may receive mercy?" (46) They said: "Ill omen do we augur from thee and those that are with thee". He said: "Your ill omen is with Allah; yea, ye are a people under trial." (47) Now there were nine ring-leaders in the city who created corruption in the land and never worked to set things right. (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) They hatched up the plot; We also planned without their knowledge. (50) Now see the end of their machinations: We destroyed them and their entire people. (51) These are their houses in utter ruin, for they did wrong. Verily, in this is indeed an Ayah (a lesson or a sign) for people who know. (52) And We delivered those who believed and were wont to avoid disobeying (Allah). (53) And (remember) Lut when he said to his people, “What! You stoop to the shameful whereas you can see?” (54) Do you indeed approach men with desire instead of women? Rather, you are a people behaving ignorantly." (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) 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 down on them a rain (of stones). So evil was the rain of those who were warned. (58)
