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 do you seek to hasten on the evil before the good? Why do you not ask forgiveness of Allah so that you may be dealt with mercifully? (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) There were in the city nine men who spread corruption in the land, and would not reform. (48) They said: "Swear a mutual oath by Allah that we shall make a secret night attack on him and his people, and that we shall then say to his heir (when he seeks vengeance): 'We were not present at the slaughter of his people, and we are positively telling the truth.'" (49) And they planned a plan, and We planned a plan, while they perceived not. (50) Then see how was the end of their plot! Verily! We destroyed them and their nation, all together. (51) Now behold their houses that lie in utter ruins because of their wrong-doing. Verily there is a Sign in this for the people who know. (52) And We delivered those who believed and who guarded (against evil). (53) And Lot, when he said to his people, 'What, do you commit indecency with your eyes open? (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 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 saved him and his family except his wife who was destined to stay behind. (57) And We rained upon them a rain; ill was the rain upon the warned. (58)
