Hizb 39
Juz 20
And We sent to Thamood their brother Salih: 'Serve you God!' And behold, they were two parties, that were disputing one with another. (45) He said: O my people! wherefore seek ye to hasten the evil before the good? Wherefore ask ye not forgiveness of Allah, that haply ye may be shewn mercy. (46) They said: "Ill omen do we augur from thee and those that are with thee". He said: "Your ill omen is with Allah; yea, ye are a people under trial." (47) There were in the city nine men who spread corruption in the land, and would not reform. (48) They said: swear by God one to another that we shall surely fall upon him and his household by night and thereafter we shall surely say unto his heir; we witnessed not the destruction of his household, and verily we are truthtellers. (49) And they plotted a plot, and We plotted a plot, while they perceived it not. (50) Behold, then, what all their scheming came to in the end: We utterly destroyed them and their people, all of them; (51) So those are their houses fallen down because they were unjust, most surely there is a sign in this for a people who know. (52) We deliver those who believe and take heed for themselves. (53) And Lot! when he said unto his folk: Will ye commit abomination knowingly? (54) “What! You lustfully go towards men, leaving the women?! In fact, you are an ignorant people.” (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) Then We delivered him and his household save his wife: We destined her to be of the lingerers. (57) And We showered a rain upon them; so what a wretched rain for those who were warned! (58)
