Hizb 39
Juz 20
We sent to the tribe of Thamud their brother Salih so that they would worship God, but they became two quarrelling groups. (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 have met with ill luck on account of you and on account of those with you. He said: The cause of your evil fortune is with Allah; nay, you are a people who are tried. (47) There were in the city nine men who spread corruption in the land, and would not reform. (48) They said: Swear to each other by Allah that we will certainly make a sudden attack on him and his family by night, then we will say to his heir: We did not witness the destruction of his family, and we are most surely truthful. (49) And they planned a plan, and We planned a plan while they perceived not. (50) Now see the end of their machinations: We destroyed them and their entire people. (51) and [now] those dwellings of theirs are empty, [ruined] as an outcome of their evil deeds. In this, behold, there is a message indeed for people of [innate] knowledge (52) We saved the faithful God-fearing believers. (53) And tell of Lot. He said to his people, "Will you commit evil knowingly? (54) Would ye go in lustfully unto men instead of women? Aye! ye are a people addicted to ignorant ways. (55) ۞ And the only answer of his people was that they said, 'Expel the folk of Lot from your city; they are men that keep themselves clean!' (56) Then We delivered him and his household save his wife: We destined her to be of the lingerers. (57) And We rained down upon them a rain. It was an evil rain for those who had already been warned. (58)
