Hizb 39
Juz 20
And indeed We sent to the Thamud, their fellowman Saleh that, “Worship Allah”, thereupon they became two parties quarrelling. (45) He urged them, "O my people, why do you wish to hasten on the evil rather than the good? Why do you not ask forgiveness of God, so that you may be shown mercy?" (46) They said: "We augur ill omen from you and those with you." He said: "Your ill omen is with Allah; nay, but you are a people that are being tested." (47) In the city there were nine people who were corrupting the land and did not reform. (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 planned a plan, and We planned a plan, while they perceived not. (50) Then see the nature of the consequence of their plotting, for lo! We destroyed them and their people, every one. (51) and [now] those dwellings of theirs are empty, [ruined] as an outcome of their evil deeds. In this, behold, there is a message indeed for people of [innate] knowledge (52) We deliver those who believe and take heed for themselves. (53) And tell of Lot. He said to his people, "Will you commit evil knowingly? (54) Must you really approach men with lust instead of women? Nay, but you are people without any awareness (of right and wrong)!" (55) ۞ There was no other answer given by his people except that they said: "Drive out the family of Lout (Lot) from your city. Verily, these are men who want to be clean and pure!" (56) So We saved him and his family, except his wife. We destined her to be of those who remained behind. (57) And we rained on them a rain (of stones); indeed it is an evil rain that rains on those that are warned. (58)
