And indeed We sent to the Thamud, their fellowman Saleh that, “Worship Allah”, thereupon they 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 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) And there were in the city nine persons who made mischief in the land and did not act aright. (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) They hatched up the plot; We also planned without their knowledge. (50) So behold thou how was the end of their plotting: verily We annihilated them and their nation all together. (51) Those are their houses, all are in ruins because of the evil they committed; surely in this there is a sign for nation who know. (52) And We delivered those who believed and were godfearing. (53) (We also sent) Lut (as a messenger): behold, He said to his people, "Do ye do what is shameful though ye see (its iniquity)? (54) What, do you approach men lustfully instead of women? No, you are a people that are ignorant.' (55) ۞ His people had no answer except saying: "Expel the family of Lot from your city. They are a people who would (rather) be pure!" (56) We saved (Lot) and his family except his wife who was destined to remain behind. (57) And We rained down on them a shower (of brimstone): and evil was the shower on those who were admonished (but heeded not)! (58)
