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 are you impatient for evil instead of good? Why do you not seek forgiveness of Allah that you may receive mercy?" (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 the city nine men who spread corruption in 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) And so they devised an evil scheme; but We devised a subtle scheme (of Our own), and they perceived it not. (50) And behold the consequences of their devising! We destroyed them, and their nation altogether. (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) And We saved those who believed and were cautious. (53) And tell of Lot. He said to his people, "Will you commit evil knowingly? (54) Do you have carnal relations with men rather than women? You are ignorant people". (55) ۞ Therefore the answer of his people was nothing except that they said, “Expel the family of Lut from your township; these people wish purity!” (56) So We saved him and his family, except for his wife; We destined her to be of those who remained behind. (57) We sent to them a terrible rainstorm. How horrible was the rain for the people who had already received warning. (58)
