And certainly We sent to Samood their brother Salih, saying: Serve Allah; and lo! they became two sects quarrelling with each other. (45) 'My nation' he said, 'why do you wish to hasten evil rather than good? Why do you not ask the forgiveness of Allah, in order that you find mercy' (46) They said: we augur ill of thee and of those who are with thee. He said: your augury is with Allah. Aye! ye are a people being tested. (47) Now there were nine ring-leaders in the city who created corruption in the land and never worked to set things right. (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) Therefore see what was the result of their scheming We destroyed them and their entire nation. (51) Those are their houses, all fallen down because of the evil they committed; surely in that is a sign for a people who have knowledge. (52) And We delivered those who believed and who guarded (against evil). (53) And [mention] Lot, when he said to his people, "Do you commit immorality while you are seeing? (54) Do you approach men lustfully instead of women! No, you are an ignorant nation' (55) ۞ But the answer of his people was not except that they said, "Expel the family of Lot from your city. Indeed, they are people who keep themselves 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 down on them a shower (of stones). How ruinous was the rain that fell on those who had been warned (but warned in vain)! (58)
