And We had certainly sent to Thamud their brother Salih, [saying], "Worship Allah," and at once they were two parties conflicting. (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) There were nine tribes in the city spreading evil without any reform in the land. (48) They said: "Let us swear by God that we will attack Saleh and his family at night, and later tell his heirs: 'We did not see his family destroyed, and we speak the truth.'" (49) And they devised a device, and We likewise devised a device, while they were not aware; (50) Then see how was the end of their plot! Verily! We destroyed 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. (53) Lot asked his people, "Do you understandably commit indecency? (54) Do you indeed approach men with desire instead of women? Rather, you are a people behaving ignorantly." (55) ۞ Yet the only answer of his nation was that they said: 'Expel the family of Lot from your village, they are people who purified themselves' (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 rain (of stones). So evil was the rain of those who were warned. (58)
