Hizb 39
Juz 20
To Thamud We sent their brother Salih. He said, "Serve none but God." But they divided themselves into two factions contending with one another. (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 predict an evil omen from you and those who are with you' He replied: 'Your prediction is with Allah, you are a nation being tested' (47) Now there were in the city nine men who were wont to commit deeds of depravity all over 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) Thus they devised a plan, and We also devised a plan, but they were not aware of it. (50) and behold, how was the end of their device! For We destroyed them and their people all together. (51) Those are their empty houses which We ruined because of their injustice. In this there is evidence (of the truth) for the people of knowledge. (52) We deliver those who believe and take heed for themselves. (53) And Lot, he said to his nation: 'Do you commit indecencies with your eyes open! (54) You lust after men in place of women. You are indeed a stolid people." (55) ۞ His people had no answer but to say, "Expel Lot and his family from the town for they want to be 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 on them a rain (of stones); indeed it is an evil rain that rains on those that are warned. (58)
