And We sent Saleh to the tribe of Thamud, from their own community; he said, “O my people! Worship Allah you do not have any God except Him; indeed a clear proof has come to you from your Lord; this is Allah’s she-camel a sign for you so leave her free to feed in Allah’s earth, and do not touch her with evil intentions for a painful punishment will seize you.” 73 And remember when He appointed you successors after Ad, and lodged you in the land, taking to yourselves castles of its plains, and hewing its mountains into houses. Remember God's bounties, and do not mischief in the earth, working corruption.' 74 but the arrogant leaders of his people said to the believers who were deemed weak, "Do you know for certain that Salih is one sent from his Lord?" They replied, "We believe in the message which has been sent through him." 75 Those who were arrogant said: "Verily, we disbelieve in that which you believe in." 76 So they hamstrung the she-camel and were insolent toward the command of their Lord and said, "O Salih, bring us what you promise us, if you should be of the messengers." 77 Then the earthquake overtook them, so they became motionless bodies in their abode. 78 Then he turned from them, and said: O my people! Assuredly I delivered unto you the messages of my Lord, and counselled you good, but ye approve not the good counsellors. 79 And We sent Lut when he said to his people, “What! You commit the shameful acts which no one in the creation has ever done before you?” 80 You engage in lustful activities with people instead of women. You have become transgressing people. 81 And the only answer of his people was that they said, 'Expel them from your city; surely they are folk that keep themselves clean!' 82 But We saved him and his family, except for his wife who was one of those who stayed behind. 83 And We rained down upon them a rain; so behold thou, how was the end of the sinners! 84
