Hizb 39
Juz 20
And indeed We sent to the Thamud, their fellowman Saleh that, “Worship Allah”, thereupon they became two parties quarrelling. (45) He said: "O my people! why ask ye to hasten on the evil in preference to the good? If only ye ask Allah for forgiveness, ye may hope to receive 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) Now in the city there were nine persons who did corruption in the land, and put not things right; (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 devised a scheme, and We made our secret plan, and they remained neglectful. (50) So behold thou how was the end of their plotting: verily We annihilated them and their nation all together. (51) These are their houses in utter ruin, for they did wrong. Verily, in this is indeed an Ayah (a lesson or a sign) for people who know. (52) And We saved those who believed and practised righteousness. (53) And Lot! when he said unto his folk: Will ye commit abomination knowingly? (54) You lust after men in place of women. You are indeed a stolid people." (55) ۞ The only answer of his people was, "Drive out Lot and his family from the city. They are a people who make themselves out to be 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 upon them a rain. It was an evil rain for those who had already been warned. (58)
