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 ask ye to hasten on the evil in preference to the good? If only ye ask Allah for forgiveness, ye may hope to receive mercy. (46) They said: we augur ill of thee and of those who are with thee. He said: your augury is with Allah. Aye! ye are a people 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 one another in the name of Allah that we shall make a sudden night swoop on Salih and his family and will then tell their heirs that we did not witness the destruction of his family. We are indeed truthful." (49) They hatched up the plot; We also planned without their knowledge. (50) Then see how was the end of their plot! Verily! We destroyed them and their nation, all together. (51) Those are their houses, all are in ruins because of the evil they committed; surely in this there is a sign for nation who know. (52) And We rescued those who accepted faith and used to fear. (53) We also sent Lot, and recall when he told his people: "Do you commit shameless acts with your eyes open? (54) "Do you approach men in your lusts rather than women? Nay, but you are a people who behave senselessly." (55) ۞ The only answer of his people was, "Drive out Lot and his family from the city. They are a people who make themselves out to be pure." (56) Thereupon We saved him and his household - all but his wife, whom We willed to be among those that stayed behind (57) And We showered a rain upon them; so what a wretched rain for those who were warned! (58)
