Juz 20
And indeed We sent to the Thamud, their fellowman Saleh that, “Worship Allah”, thereupon they became two parties quarrelling. (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: "You betoken evil, and those with you." (Saleh) replied: "The evil you presage can only come from God. In reality you are a people under trial (for your own inauspiciousness)." (47) In the city there were nine people who were corrupting the land and did not reform. (48) They said, "Let us swear by God to do away with him and his family during the night then tell his guardian that we did not see how he and his family had been destroyed, and we shall be telling the truth." (49) So they plotted a plot: and We plotted a plot, while they perceived not. (50) Then look how was the outcome of their plan - that We destroyed them and their people, all. (51) So these are their houses fallen flat, the recompense of their injustice; indeed in this is a sign for people who know. (52) and We saved those who believed in and feared God. (53) And tell of Lot. He said to his people, "Will you commit evil knowingly? (54) What, do you approach men lustfully instead of women? No, you are a people that are ignorant.' (55) ۞ His people had no answer but to say, "Expel Lot and his family from the town for they want to be pure." (56) So We delivered him and his family, except his wife; We decreed she should be of those that tarried. (57) And We rained upon them a rain; ill was the rain upon the warned. (58)
