And indeed We sent to the Thamud, their fellowman Saleh that, “Worship Allah”, thereupon they became two parties quarrelling. (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 predict an evil omen from you and those who are with you' He replied: 'Your prediction is with Allah, you are a nation being tested' (47) There were in the city nine men who spread corruption 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) So they plotted a plot, and We planned a plan, while they perceived not. (50) and behold, how was the end of their device! For We destroyed them and their people all together. (51) Now such were their houses, - in utter ruin, - because they practised wrong-doing. Verily in this is a Sign for people of knowledge. (52) And we saved those who believed and used to ward off (evil). (53) Lot asked his people, "Do you understandably commit indecency? (54) Do you have carnal relations with men rather than women? You are ignorant people". (55) ۞ But his people's only answer was this: "Expel [Lot and] Lot's followers from your township! Verily, they are folk who make themselves out to be pure!" (56) We therefore rescued him and his family, except his wife; We had decreed that she is of those who will remain behind. (57) And We rained on them a rain; and evil indeed is the rain of them that are warned. (58)
