Hizb 39
Juz 20
We sent to the tribe of Thamud their brother Salih so that they would worship God, but they became two quarrelling groups. (45) He urged them, "O my people, why do you wish to hasten on the evil rather than the good? Why do you not ask forgiveness of God, so that you may be shown 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) And there were nine of a group in the city, who spread corruption in the land and rectified not. (48) They said: Swear one to another by Allah that we verily will attack him and his household by night, and afterward we will surely say unto his friend: We witnessed not the destruction of his household. And lo! we are truthtellers. (49) And they devised a device, and We likewise devised a device, while they were not aware; (50) Behold, then, what all their scheming came to in the end: We utterly 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 (We sent) Lut, when he said to his people: What! do you commit indecency while you see? (54) What! do you indeed approach men lustfully rather than women? Nay, you are a people who act ignorantly. (55) ۞ His people had no answer except saying: "Expel the family of Lot from your city. They are a people who would (rather) be pure!" (56) So We saved him and his family, except his wife, whom We decreed should stay behind. (57) And We rained upon them a rain [of stones], and evil was the rain of those who were warned. (58)
