Hizb 39
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) (Saleh) said: "O people, why do you wish to hasten evil rather than good? Why not ask for God's forgiveness? You may well be forgiven." (46) They said: "We augur ill of you and those who are with you." Salih replied: "Your augury is with Allah. The truth is that you are a people who are being tried." (47) Now there were in the city nine men who were wont to commit deeds of depravity all over the land, and would not reform; (48) They said: Swear to each other by Allah that we will certainly make a sudden attack on him and his family by night, then we will say to his heir: We did not witness the destruction of his family, and we are most surely truthful. (49) So they plotted a plot: and We plotted a plot, while they perceived not. (50) Now see the end of their machinations: We destroyed them and their entire people. (51) Now behold their houses that lie in utter ruins because of their wrong-doing. Verily there is a Sign in this for the people who know. (52) And We saved those who believed and used to fear Allah. (53) And Lot! when he said unto his folk: Will ye commit abomination knowingly? (54) Do you approach men lustfully instead of women! No, you are an ignorant nation' (55) ۞ Then there was no answer of his people save that they said: drive forth the family of Lut from your City, verily they are a people who would be pure! (56) So We saved him and his family, except for his wife; We destined her to be of those who remained behind. (57) the while We rained a rain [of destruction] upon the others: and dire is such rain upon all who let themselves be warned [to no avail] (58)
