And indeed We sent to Thamud their brother Salih (Saleh), saying: "Worship Allah (Alone and none else). Then look! They became two parties (believers and disbelievers) quarreling with each other." (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: "You betoken evil, and those with you." (Saleh) replied: "The evil you presage can only come from God. In reality you are a people under trial (for your own inauspiciousness)." (47) There were in the city nine men of a family, who made mischief in the land, and would not reform. (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 plotted a plot, and We plotted a plot, while they perceived it not. (50) See, then, what the consequences of their plan were. We destroyed them and their people utterly, all together. (51) Now such were their houses, - in utter ruin, - because they practised wrong-doing. Verily in this is a Sign for people of knowledge. (52) And We delivered those who believed and who guarded (against evil). (53) (Remember) Lot, when he said to his people: "Why do you indulge in obscenities when you know (it is evil)? (54) What, do you approach men lustfully instead of women? No, you are a people that are ignorant.' (55) ۞ But his people gave no other answer but this: they said, "Drive out the followers of Lut from your city: these are indeed men who want to be clean and pure!" (56) So We saved him and his family, except his wife. We destined her to be of those who remained behind. (57) And We rained down on them a rain (of stones). So evil was the rain of those who were warned. (58)
