And We verily sent unto Thamud their brother Salih, saying: Worship Allah. And lo! they (then became two parties quarrelling. (45) He urged them, "O my people, why do you wish to hasten on the evil rather than the good? Why do you not ask forgiveness of God, so that you may be shown mercy?" (46) They said, “We consider you an evil omen, and your companions”; he said, “Your evil omen is with Allah in fact you people have fallen into trial.” (47) And there were in the city nine men (from the sons of their chiefs), who made mischief in the land, and would not reform. (48) Swearing by Allah they said to one another, “We will indeed attack him and his family at night, and then say to his heir, ‘We were not present at the time of slaying of this household, and indeed we are truthful.’” (49) So they devised a scheme, and We made our secret plan, and they remained neglectful. (50) So see what was the outcome of the plan they made: We utterly destroyed them and their people, all of them. (51) and [now] those dwellings of theirs are empty, [ruined] as an outcome of their evil deeds. In this, behold, there is a message indeed for people of [innate] knowledge (52) And We delivered those who believed and who guarded (against evil). (53) And [mention] Lot, when he said to his people, "Do you commit immorality while you are seeing? (54) Would ye go in lustfully unto men instead of women? Aye! ye are a people addicted to ignorant ways. (55) ۞ Yet the only answer of his nation was that they said: 'Expel the family of Lot from your village, they are people who purified themselves' (56) Then We saved him and his household save his wife; We destined her to be of those who stayed behind. (57) We sent to them a terrible rainstorm. How horrible was the rain for the people who had already received warning. (58)
