We sent to the tribe of Thamud their brother Salih so that they would worship God, but they became two quarrelling groups. (45) He said: O my people! Why will ye hasten on the evil rather than the good? Why will ye not ask pardon of Allah, that ye may 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) And there were nine persons in the city who used to cause turmoil in the land and did not wish reform. (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) So they plotted a plot, and We planned a plan, while they perceived not. (50) So see what was the outcome of the plan they made: We utterly destroyed them and their people, all of them. (51) Because of their wrongdoing, their houses are in ruins, in that surely there is a sign for people who have knowledge, (52) And We delivered those who believed and were wont to fear. (53) (Remember) Lot, when he said to his people: "Why do you indulge in obscenities when you know (it is evil)? (54) Do you have carnal relations with men rather than women? You are ignorant people". (55) ۞ But his people's only answer was this: "Expel [Lot and] Lot's followers from your township! Verily, they are folk who make themselves out to be pure!" (56) So We delivered him and his family, except his wife; We decreed she should be of those that tarried. (57) And we rained on them a rain (of stones); indeed it is an evil rain that rains on those that are warned. (58)
