We sent (aforetime), to the Thamud, their brother Salih, saying, "Serve Allah": But behold, they became two factions quarrelling with each other. (45) He said, 'O my people, why do you seek to hasten evil before good? Why do you not ask forgiveness of God? Haply so you will find mercy.' (46) They said: "We augur ill of you and those who are with you." Salih replied: "Your augury is with Allah. The truth is that you are a people who are being tried." (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 God that we will attack Saleh and his family at night, and later tell his heirs: 'We did not see his family destroyed, and we speak the truth.'" (49) They plotted and planned, but We too planned, even while they perceived it not. (50) And behold the consequences of their devising! We destroyed them, and their nation altogether. (51) So yonder are their houses overturned, for they did wrong. Verily, herein is a sign unto a people who know. (52) And We delivered those who believed and were wont to avoid disobeying (Allah). (53) And Lot, when he said to his people, 'What, do you commit indecency with your eyes open? (54) “What! You lustfully go towards men, leaving the women?! In fact, you are an ignorant people.” (55) ۞ Therefore the answer of his people was nothing except that they said, “Expel the family of Lut from your township; these people wish purity!” (56) We saved (Lot) and his family except his wife who was destined to remain behind. (57) the while We rained a rain [of destruction] upon the others: and dire is such rain upon all who let themselves be warned [to no avail] (58)
