Hizb 39
Juz 20
And We had certainly sent to Thamud their brother Salih, [saying], "Worship Allah," and at once they were two parties conflicting. (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: "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) There were in that city nine persons who spread disorder in 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) And they plotted a plot, and We plotted a plot, while they perceived it not. (50) So behold thou how was the end of their plotting: verily We annihilated them and their nation all together. (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) And We delivered those who believed and were godfearing. (53) And (remember) Lut when he said to his people, “What! You stoop to the shameful whereas you can see?” (54) “What! You lustfully go towards men, leaving the women?! In fact, you are an ignorant people.” (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) We therefore rescued him and his family, except his wife; We had decreed that she is of those who will remain behind. (57) And We rained down on them a shower (of stones). How ruinous was the rain that fell on those who had been warned (but warned in vain)! (58)
