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 the evil (torment) before the good (Allah's Mercy)? Why seek you not the Forgiveness of Allah, that you may receive mercy?" (46) They said, “We consider you an evil omen, and your companions”; he said, “Your evil omen is with Allah in fact you people have fallen into trial.” (47) There were in that city nine persons who spread disorder in the land, and did not reform. (48) They said, "Let us swear by God to do away with him and his family during the night then tell his guardian that we did not see how he and his family had been destroyed, and we shall be telling the truth." (49) And they devised a scheme and, without their knowledge, We devised a scheme. (50) Then look how was the outcome of their plan - that We destroyed them and their people, all. (51) So these their habitations lie deserted now because of their iniquities. Verily there is a sign in this for those who understand. (52) We saved the faithful God-fearing believers. (53) And (remember) Lout (Lot)! When he said to his people. Do you commit Al-Fahishah (evil, great sin, every kind of unlawful sexual intercourse, sodomy, etc.) while you see (one another doing evil without any screen, etc.)?" (54) Do you lustfully approach men instead of women? Nay, you engage in acts of sheer ignorance." (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) But We delivered him and his followers except his wife; We ordained her to be of those who remained behind. (57) And we rained on them a rain (of stones); indeed it is an evil rain that rains on those that are warned. (58)
