We sent (aforetime), to the Thamud, their brother Salih, saying, "Serve Allah": But behold, they became two factions quarrelling with each other. (45) (Saleh) said: "O people, why do you wish to hasten evil rather than good? Why not ask for God's forgiveness? You may well be forgiven." (46) They said: "We augur ill omen from you and those with you." He said: "Your ill omen is with Allah; nay, but you are a people that are being tested." (47) There were nine tribes in the city spreading evil without any reform in the land. (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 planned, but We too planned, even while they perceived it not. (50) and behold, how was the end of their device! For We destroyed them and their people 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 saved those who believed, and used to fear Allah, and keep their duty to Him. (53) (Remember) Lot, when he said to his people: "Why do you indulge in obscenities when you know (it is evil)? (54) Must you really approach men with lust instead of women? Nay, but you are people without any awareness (of right and wrong)!" (55) ۞ Then there was no answer of his people save that they said: drive forth the family of Lut from your City, verily they are a people who would be pure! (56) We therefore rescued him and his family, except his wife; We had decreed that she is of those who will remain behind. (57) and We pelted them with torrential rain. How dreadful that rain was for those who had been warned! (58)
