Hizb 39
Juz 20
And assuredly We sent unto the Thamud their brother Saleh saying: worship Allah. Then lo! they became two parties contending. (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, "We have an ill omen about you and your followers." Salih replied, God has made your ill fortune await you. You are a people on trial." (47) In the city there were nine people who were corrupting the land and did 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) and behold, how was the end of their device! For We destroyed them and their people all together. (51) So these are their houses fallen flat, the recompense of their injustice; indeed in this is a sign for people who know. (52) And We delivered those who believed and were godfearing. (53) And (We sent) Lut, when he said to his people: What! do you commit indecency while you see? (54) Do you approach men lustfully instead of women! No, you are an ignorant nation' (55) ۞ But the answer of his people was no other except that they said: Turn out Lut's followers from your town; surely they are a people who would keep pure! (56) Then We saved him and his household save his wife; We destined her to be of those who stayed 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)
