Hizb 39
Juz 20
We sent (aforetime), to the Thamud, their brother Salih, saying, "Serve Allah": But behold, they became two factions quarrelling with each other. (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 omen from you and those with you." He said: "Your ill omen is with Allah; nay, but you are a people that are being tested." (47) And there were in the city nine men (from the sons of their chiefs), who made mischief in the land, and would not reform. (48) They said: 'Let us swear by Allah to attack him and his family at night, then we will tell his guardian we were not witnesses of the destruction of his family; and surely we are truthful' (49) And they plotted a plot, and We plotted a plot, while they perceived it not. (50) See, then, how was the end of their plan that We destroyed them and their people, all (of them). (51) Those are their houses, all fallen down because of the evil they committed; surely in that is a sign for a people who have knowledge. (52) and We saved those who believed in and feared God. (53) And [mention] Lot, when he said to his people, "Do you commit immorality while you are seeing? (54) Would ye go in lustfully unto men instead of women? Aye! ye are a people addicted to ignorant ways. (55) ۞ There was no other answer given by his people except that they said: "Drive out the family of Lout (Lot) from your city. Verily, these are men who want to be clean and 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)
