AND [likewise,] indeed, We sent unto [the tribe of] Thamud their brother Salih [with this message]: "Worship God alone!" and behold, they were [split into] two factions contending with one another. (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 have an ill omen about you and your followers." Salih replied, God has made your ill fortune await you. You are a people on trial." (47) And there were nine persons in the city who used to cause turmoil in the land and did not wish reform. (48) They said: Swear to each other by Allah that we will certainly make a sudden attack on him and his family by night, then we will say to his heir: We did not witness the destruction of his family, and we are most surely truthful. (49) So they devised a scheme, and We made our secret plan, and they remained neglectful. (50) See, then, how was the end of their plan that We destroyed them and their people, all (of them). (51) So those are their houses fallen down because they were unjust, most surely there is a sign in this for a people who know. (52) And We rescued those who accepted faith and used to fear. (53) (Remember) Lot, when he said to his people: "Why do you indulge in obscenities when you know (it is evil)? (54) “What! You lustfully go towards men, leaving the women?! In fact, you are an ignorant people.” (55) ۞ But this had only one answer from his people. They said: "Expel Lot's folk from your city. They pretend to be absolutely clean." (56) Thereupon We saved him and his household - all but his wife, whom We willed to be among those that stayed behind (57) And We showered a rain upon them; so what a wretched rain for those who were warned! (58)
