Juz 20
And indeed We sent to the Thamud, their fellowman Saleh that, “Worship Allah”, thereupon they became two parties quarrelling. (45) Salih said, "My people, why do you commit sins so quickly before doing good? Would that you ask forgiveness from God so that perhaps He will have mercy upon you." (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) There were in that city nine persons who spread disorder in the land, and did not reform. (48) they said, 'Swear you, one to another, by God, "We will attack him and his family by night, then we will tell his protector, We were not witnesses of the destruction of his family; and assuredly we are truthful men."' (49) So they devised a scheme, and We made our secret plan, and they remained neglectful. (50) Then see what was the end of their plot!- this, that We destroyed them and their people, all (of them). (51) So those are their houses, desolate because of the wrong they had done. Indeed in that is a sign for people who know. (52) And We delivered those who believed and were godfearing. (53) We also sent Lot, and recall when he told his people: "Do you commit shameless acts with your eyes open? (54) Would ye really approach men in your lusts rather than women? Nay, ye are a people (grossly) ignorant! (55) ۞ And the only answer of his people was that they said, 'Expel the folk of Lot from your city; they are men that keep themselves clean!' (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 upon them a rain [of stones], and evil was the rain of those who were warned. (58)
