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 do you seek to hasten evil before good? Why do you not ask forgiveness of God? Haply so you will find mercy.' (46) They answered: "We augur evil from thee and those that follow thee!" Said he: "Your destiny, good or evil, rests with God; yea, you are people undergoing a test!" (47) In the city there were nine people who were corrupting the land and did not reform. (48) They said: "Swear to one another in the name of Allah that we shall make a sudden night swoop on Salih and his family and will then tell their heirs that we did not witness the destruction of his family. We are indeed truthful." (49) They hatched up the plot; We also planned without their knowledge. (50) See, then, what the consequences of their plan were. We destroyed them and their people utterly, 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 saved those who believed and used to ward off (evil). (53) And (We sent) Lut, when he said to his people: What! do you commit indecency while you see? (54) Would ye really approach men in your lusts rather than women? Nay, ye are a people (grossly) ignorant! (55) ۞ His people had no answer but to say, "Expel Lot and his family from the town for they want 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 upon them a rain; ill was the rain upon the warned. (58)
