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 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 evil of thee and those with thee. He said: Your evil augury is with Allah. Nay, but ye are folk that are being tested. (47) Now there were in the city nine men who were wont to commit deeds of depravity all over the land, and would not reform; (48) Swearing by Allah they said to one another, “We will indeed attack him and his family at night, and then say to his heir, ‘We were not present at the time of slaying of this household, and indeed we are truthful.’” (49) And they devised a scheme and, without their knowledge, We devised a scheme. (50) Then see how was the end of their plot! Verily! We destroyed them and their nation, all together. (51) So those are their houses fallen down because they were unjust, most surely there is a sign in this for a people who know. (52) And We delivered those who believed and were wont to avoid disobeying (Allah). (53) And tell of Lot. He said to his people, "Will you commit evil knowingly? (54) What! do you indeed approach men lustfully rather than women? Nay, you are a people who act ignorantly. (55) ۞ But the answer of his folk was naught save that they said: Expel the household of Lot from your township, for they (forsooth) are folk who would keep clean! (56) So We saved him and his family, except his wife. We destined her to be of those who remained behind. (57) and We pelted them with torrential rain. How dreadful that rain was for those who had been warned! (58)
