And indeed We sent to the Thamud, their fellowman Saleh that, “Worship Allah”, thereupon they became two parties quarrelling. (45) He said: O my people! why do you seek to hasten on the evil before the good? Why do you not ask forgiveness of Allah so that you may be dealt with mercifully? (46) They said: We have met with ill luck on account of you and on account of those with you. He said: The cause of your evil fortune is with Allah; nay, you are a people who are tried. (47) And there were in the city nine family heads causing corruption in the land and not amending [its affairs]. (48) They said: 'Let us swear by Allah to attack him and his family at night, then we will tell his guardian we were not witnesses of the destruction of his family; and surely we are truthful' (49) So they devised a scheme, and We made our secret plan, and they remained neglectful. (50) Then look how was the outcome of their plan - that We destroyed them and their people, all. (51) So these their habitations lie deserted now because of their iniquities. Verily there is a sign in this for those who understand. (52) and We saved those who believed in and feared God. (53) And tell of Lot. He said to his people, "Will you commit evil knowingly? (54) Do you have carnal relations with men rather than women? You are ignorant people". (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) But We delivered him and his followers except his wife; We ordained her to be of those who remained behind. (57) And We rained a rain upon them. Dreadful is the rain of those who have been warned. (58)
