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) He said: O my people! why do you seek to hasten on the evil before the good? Why do you not ask forgiveness of Allah so that you may be dealt with mercifully? (46) They said: we augur ill of thee and of those who are with thee. He said: your augury is with Allah. Aye! ye are a people being tested. (47) In the city there were nine people who were corrupting the land and did not reform. (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) So they plotted a plot: and We plotted a plot, while they perceived not. (50) So see what was the outcome of the plan they made: We utterly destroyed them and their people, all of them. (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 delivered those who believed and were wont to avoid disobeying (Allah). (53) And Lut! what time he said unto his people: commit ye indecency while ye see? (54) Must you go lustfully to men instead of women? Indeed, you are a people who are deeply ignorant." (55) ۞ Then there was no answer of his people save that they said: drive forth the family of Lut from your City, verily they are a people who would be pure! (56) We saved (Lot) and his family except his wife who was destined to remain behind. (57) And We rained down on them a shower (of brimstone): and evil was the shower on those who were admonished (but heeded not)! (58)
