Hizb 39
Juz 20
We sent to Thamud their brother Saleh (who said): "Worship God." But they were divided into two groups disputing with one another. (45) He said, “O my people, why do you hasten upon the evil before the good? Why do you not seek forgiveness from Allah? Perhaps there may be mercy upon you.” (46) They answered: "We augur evil from thee and those that follow thee!" Said he: "Your destiny, good or evil, rests with God; yea, you are people undergoing a test!" (47) Now in the city there were nine persons who did corruption in the land, and put not things right; (48) They said, "Take a mutual oath by Allah that we will kill him by night, he and his family. Then we will say to his executor, 'We did not witness the destruction of his family, and indeed, we are truthful.' " (49) And they planned a plan, and We planned a plan, while they perceived not. (50) Then see how was the end of their plot! Verily! We destroyed them and their nation, 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) We deliver those who believe and take heed for themselves. (53) AND [thus, too, did We save] Lot, when he said unto his people: "Would you commit this abomination with your eyes open (to its being against all nature)? (54) Would ye really approach men in your lusts rather than women? Nay, ye are a people (grossly) ignorant! (55) ۞ But the answer of his people was not except that they said, "Expel the family of Lot from your city. Indeed, they are people who keep themselves pure." (56) So We delivered him and his family, except his wife; We decreed she should be of those that tarried. (57) And We rained on them a rain; and evil indeed is the rain of them that are warned. (58)
