And We sent to Thamood their brother Salih: 'Serve you God!' And behold, they were two parties, that were disputing one with another. (45) He said: O my people! Why will ye hasten on the evil rather than the good? Why will ye not ask pardon of Allah, that ye may receive mercy. (46) They said, 'We augur ill of thee and of those that are with thee.' He said, 'Your augury is with God; nay, but you are a people being proved.' (47) And there were in the city nine men (from the sons of their chiefs), who made mischief in the land, and would not reform. (48) They said: 'Let us swear by Allah to attack him and his family at night, then we will tell his guardian we were not witnesses of the destruction of his family; and surely we are truthful' (49) Thus they planned and We too planned, the while they did not know. (50) Then look how was the outcome of their plan - that We destroyed them and their people, all. (51) See, yonder are their dwellings empty and in ruins because they did wrong. Lo! herein is indeed a portent for a people who have knowledge. (52) And We delivered those who believed and who guarded (against evil). (53) And Lot! when he said unto his folk: Will ye commit abomination knowingly? (54) What! do you indeed approach men lustfully rather than women? Nay, you are a people who act ignorantly. (55) ۞ But his people gave no other answer but this: they said, "Drive out the followers of Lut from your city: these are indeed men who want to be clean and pure!" (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 rained down on them a rain (of stones). So evil was the rain of those who were warned. (58)
