And We verily sent unto Thamud their brother Salih, saying: Worship Allah. And lo! they (then became two parties quarrelling. (45) Said [Salih to the erring ones]: Why do you seek to hasten the coming upon you of evil instead of hoping for the good?" Why do you not, rather, ask God to forgive you your sins, so that you might be graced with His mercy?" (46) They said: "We augur ill of you and those who are with you." Salih replied: "Your augury is with Allah. The truth is that you are a people who are being tried." (47) And there were nine of a group in the city, who spread corruption in the land and rectified not. (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) They hatched up the plot; We also planned without their knowledge. (50) Therefore see what was the result of their scheming We destroyed them and their entire nation. (51) So these are their houses fallen flat, the recompense of their injustice; indeed in this is a sign for people who know. (52) And We delivered those who believed and were godfearing. (53) (Remember) Lot, when he said to his people: "Why do you indulge in obscenities when you know (it is evil)? (54) Do you lustfully approach men instead of women? Nay, you engage in acts of sheer ignorance." (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) So We saved him and his family except his wife who was destined to stay behind. (57) the while We rained a rain [of destruction] upon the others: and dire is such rain upon all who let themselves be warned [to no avail] (58)
