And assuredly We sent unto the Thamud their brother Saleh saying: worship Allah. Then lo! they became two parties contending. (45) Salih said, "My people, why do you commit sins so quickly before doing good? Would that you ask forgiveness from God so that perhaps He will have mercy upon you." (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 nine persons in the city who used to cause turmoil in the land and did not wish reform. (48) They said, "Let us bind ourselves by an oath sworn in the name of God that we shall attack Salih and his family by night, and to his protector [who demands retribution], we shall say, "We were not present when they were slain. We are telling the truth." (49) So they plotted a plot: and We plotted a plot, while they perceived not. (50) Now see the end of their machinations: We destroyed them and their entire people. (51) See, yonder are their dwellings empty and in ruins because they did wrong. Lo! herein is indeed a portent for a people who have knowledge. (52) And We delivered those who believed and were godfearing. (53) And (We sent) Lut, when he said to his people: What! do you commit indecency while you see? (54) Must ye needs lust after men instead of women? Nay, but ye are folk who act senselessly. (55) ۞ And the only answer of his people was that they said, 'Expel the folk of Lot from your city; they are men that keep themselves clean!' (56) Thereupon We saved him and his household - all but his wife, whom We willed to be among those that stayed behind (57) And We rained upon them a rain [of stones], and evil was the rain of those who were warned. (58)
