And certainly We sent to Samood their brother Salih, saying: Serve Allah; and lo! they became two sects quarrelling with each other. (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 see you and your followers as an evil omen." He replied, "No, your evil omen is with God; the truth is that you are a people being put to the test." (47) And there were in the city nine persons who made mischief in the land and did not act aright. (48) They said: Swear one to another by Allah that we verily will attack him and his household by night, and afterward we will surely say unto his friend: We witnessed not the destruction of his household. And lo! we are truthtellers. (49) And they planned a plan, 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) So those are their houses fallen down because they were unjust, most surely there is a sign in this for a people who know. (52) seeing that We saved those who had attained to faith and were conscious of Us, (53) And Lot, when he said to his people, 'What, do you commit indecency with your eyes open? (54) What! do you indeed approach men lustfully rather than women? Nay, you are a people who act ignorantly. (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) So We saved him and his family, except his wife, whom We decreed should stay behind. (57) And We showered a rain upon them; so what a wretched rain for those who were warned! (58)
