And We verily sent unto Thamud their brother Salih, saying: Worship Allah. And lo! they (then became two parties quarrelling. (45) He said: "O my people! Why do you seek to hasten the evil (torment) before the good (Allah's Mercy)? Why seek you not the Forgiveness of Allah, that you may receive mercy?" (46) They said: "You betoken evil, and those with you." (Saleh) replied: "The evil you presage can only come from God. In reality you are a people under trial (for your own inauspiciousness)." (47) And there were in the city nine family heads causing corruption in the land and not amending [its affairs]. (48) they said, 'Swear you, one to another, by God, "We will attack him and his family by night, then we will tell his protector, We were not witnesses of the destruction of his family; and assuredly we are truthful men."' (49) So they plotted a plot: and We plotted a plot, while they perceived not. (50) So behold thou how was the end of their plotting: verily We annihilated them and their nation all together. (51) Those are their empty houses which We ruined because of their injustice. In this there is evidence (of the truth) for the people of knowledge. (52) And We saved those who believed, and used to fear Allah, and keep their duty to Him. (53) And [mention] Lot, when he said to his people, "Do you commit immorality while you are seeing? (54) “What! You lustfully go towards men, leaving the women?! In fact, you are an ignorant people.” (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 showered a rain upon them; so what a wretched rain for those who were warned! (58)
