Hizb 39
Juz 20
And We verily sent unto Thamud their brother Salih, saying: Worship Allah. And lo! they (then became two parties quarrelling. (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, 'We augur ill of thee and of those that are with thee.' He said, 'Your augury is with God; nay, but you are a people being proved.' (47) Now there were nine ring-leaders in the city who created corruption in the land and never worked to set things right. (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) 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) These are their houses in utter ruin, for they did wrong. Verily, in this is indeed an Ayah (a lesson or a sign) for people who know. (52) and We saved those who believed in and feared God. (53) And Lot! when he said unto his folk: Will ye commit abomination knowingly? (54) “What! You lustfully go towards men, leaving the women?! In fact, you are an 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) Then We delivered him and his household save his wife: We destined her to be of the lingerers. (57) And We rained down on them a rain (of stones). So evil was the rain of those who were warned.
