We sent to the tribe of Thamud their brother Salih so that they would worship God, but they became two quarrelling groups. (45) Said [Salih to the erring ones]: Why do you seek to hasten the coming upon you of evil instead of hoping for the good?" Why do you not, rather, ask God to forgive you your sins, so that you might be graced with His mercy?" (46) They said, "We see you and your followers as an evil omen." He replied, "No, your evil omen is with God; the truth is that you are a people being put to the test." (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, "Let us swear by God to do away with him and his family during the night then tell his guardian that we did not see how he and his family had been destroyed, and we shall be telling the truth." (49) They plotted and We planned without their knowledge. Consider the result of their plot. (50) See, then, how was the end of their plan that We destroyed them and their people, all (of them). (51) So those are their houses, desolate because of the wrong they had done. Indeed in that is a sign for people who know. (52) and We saved those who believed in and feared God. (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) What! do you indeed approach men lustfully rather than women? Nay, you are a people who act ignorantly. (55) ۞ But his people gave no other answer but this: they said, "Drive out the followers of Lut from your city: these are indeed men who want to be clean and pure!" (56) Then We saved him and his household save his wife; We destined her to be of those who stayed behind. (57) And We rained on them a rain; and evil indeed is the rain of them that are warned. (58)
