Hizb 39
Juz 20
And We sent to Thamood their brother Salih: 'Serve you God!' And behold, they were two parties, that were disputing one with another. (45) He said: "O my people! Why do you seek to hasten the evil (torment) before the good (Allah's Mercy)? Why seek you not the Forgiveness of Allah, that you may receive mercy?" (46) They said: 'We predict an evil omen from you and those who are with you' He replied: 'Your prediction is with Allah, you are a nation being tested' (47) And there were in the city nine persons who made mischief in the land and reformed not. (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) And they devised a scheme and, without their knowledge, We devised a scheme. (50) Then see the nature of the consequence of their plotting, for lo! We destroyed them and their people, every one. (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 and used to fear Allah. (53) (Remember) Lot, when he said to his people: "Why do you indulge in obscenities when you know (it is evil)? (54) Do you have carnal relations with men rather than women? You are ignorant people". (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 saved him and his family, except for his wife; We destined her to be of those who remained behind. (57) And We rained down on them a shower (of brimstone): and evil was the shower on those who were admonished (but heeded not)! (58)
