Juz 20
And We had certainly sent to Thamud their brother Salih, [saying], "Worship Allah," and at once they were two parties conflicting. (45) 'My nation' he said, 'why do you wish to hasten evil rather than good? Why do you not ask the forgiveness of Allah, in order that you find 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) And there were in the city nine persons who made mischief in the land and did not act aright. (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 plotted and planned, but We too planned, even while they perceived it not. (50) We destroyed them and their people altogether. (51) See, yonder are their dwellings empty and in ruins because they did wrong. Lo! herein is indeed a portent for a people who have knowledge. (52) And we saved those who believed and used to ward off (evil). (53) And (We sent) Lut, when he said to his people: What! do you commit indecency while you see? (54) Do you indeed approach men with desire instead of women? Rather, you are a people behaving ignorantly." (55) ۞ But the answer of his people was not except that they said, "Expel the family of Lot from your city. Indeed, they are people who keep themselves pure." (56) But We saved him and his family, except his wife; her We destined to be of those who lagged behind. (57) And We rained down on them a shower (of stones). How ruinous was the rain that fell on those who had been warned (but warned in vain)! (58)
