Juz 20
And We sent to Thamud their brother Salih (with the Message): "Serve Allah," but all of a sudden they became split into two quarrelling factions. (45) He said: "O my people! Why do you seek to hasten the evil (torment) before the good (Allah's Mercy)? Why seek you not the Forgiveness of Allah, that you may receive mercy?" (46) They said, "We consider you a bad omen, you and those with you." He said, "Your omen is with Allah. Rather, you are a people being tested." (47) Now there were nine ring-leaders in the city who created corruption in the land and never worked to set things right. (48) Swearing by Allah they said to one another, “We will indeed attack him and his family at night, and then say to his heir, ‘We were not present at the time of slaying of this household, and indeed we are truthful.’” (49) And they plotted a plot, and We plotted a plot, while they perceived it not. (50) Then look how was the outcome of their plan - that We destroyed them and their people, all. (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) seeing that We saved those who had attained to faith and were conscious of Us, (53) (We also sent) Lut (as a messenger): behold, He said to his people, "Do ye do what is shameful though ye see (its iniquity)? (54) What, do you approach men lustfully instead of women? No, you are a people that are ignorant.' (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 delivered him and his family, except his wife: We ordained her to be one of those who stayed behind, (57) And We rained on them a rain, and evil was the rain of those who had been warned. (58)
