Hizb 39
Juz 20
We sent (aforetime), to the Thamud, their brother Salih, saying, "Serve Allah": But behold, they became two factions quarrelling with each other. (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, “We consider you an evil omen, and your companions”; he said, “Your evil omen is with Allah in fact you people have fallen into trial.” (47) And there were in the city nine family heads causing corruption in the land and not amending [its affairs]. (48) They said: Swear one to another by Allah that we verily will attack him and his household by night, and afterward we will surely say unto his friend: We witnessed not the destruction of his household. And lo! we are truthtellers. (49) Thus they planned and We too planned, the while they did not know. (50) and behold, how was the end of their device! For We destroyed them and their people all together. (51) So yonder are their houses overturned, for they did wrong. Verily, herein is a sign unto a people who know. (52) And We delivered those who believed and who guarded (against evil). (53) Lot asked his people, "Do you understandably commit indecency? (54) Do you have carnal relations with men rather than women? You are ignorant people". (55) ۞ And the only answer of his people was that they said, 'Expel the folk of Lot from your city; they are men that keep themselves clean!' (56) But We delivered him and his followers except his wife; We ordained 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)
