And indeed We sent to the Thamud, their fellowman Saleh that, “Worship Allah”, thereupon they became two parties quarrelling. (45) He said: "O my people! why ask ye to hasten on the evil in preference to the good? If only ye ask Allah for forgiveness, ye may hope to receive mercy. (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) In the city there were nine people who were corrupting the land and did not reform. (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) 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 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 were godfearing. (53) And Lot! when he said unto his folk: Will ye commit abomination knowingly? (54) Do you have carnal relations with men rather than women? You are ignorant people". (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 saved him and his family, except for his wife; We destined her to be of those who remained behind. (57) And We rained upon them a rain [of stones], and evil was the rain of those who were warned. (58)
