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) Said [Salih to the erring ones]: Why do you seek to hasten the coming upon you of evil instead of hoping for the good?" Why do you not, rather, ask God to forgive you your sins, so that you might be graced with His mercy?" (46) They said: "You betoken evil, and those with you." (Saleh) replied: "The evil you presage can only come from God. In reality you are a people under trial (for your own inauspiciousness)." (47) And there were in the city nine persons who made mischief in the land and reformed not. (48) They said, "Take a mutual oath by Allah that we will kill him by night, he and his family. Then we will say to his executor, 'We did not witness the destruction of his family, and indeed, we are truthful.' " (49) And they devised a scheme and, without their knowledge, We devised a scheme. (50) and behold, how was the end of their device! For We destroyed them and their people all together. (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) seeing that We saved those who had attained to faith and were conscious of Us, (53) (We also sent) Lut (as a messenger): behold, He said to his people, "Do ye do what is shameful though ye see (its iniquity)? (54) “What! You lustfully go towards men, leaving the women?! In fact, you are an ignorant people.” (55) ۞ But this had only one answer from his people. They said: "Expel Lot's folk from your city. They pretend to be absolutely clean." (56) So We saved him and his family except his wife who was destined to stay behind. (57) And We rained on them a rain; and evil indeed is the rain of them that are warned. (58)
