And We had certainly sent to Thamud their brother Salih, [saying], "Worship Allah," and at once they were two parties conflicting. (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 answered: "We augur evil from thee and those that follow thee!" Said he: "Your destiny, good or evil, rests with God; yea, you are people undergoing a test!" (47) There were in that city nine persons who spread disorder in the land, and did not reform. (48) They said: "Swear a mutual oath by Allah that we shall make a secret night attack on him and his people, and that we shall then say to his heir (when he seeks vengeance): 'We were not present at the slaughter of his people, and we are positively telling the truth.'" (49) And they plotted a plot, and We plotted a plot, while they perceived it not. (50) Then see how was the end of their plot! Verily! We destroyed them and their nation, all together. (51) So those are their houses fallen down because they were unjust, most surely there is a sign in this for a people who know. (52) And We delivered those who believed and were wont to avoid disobeying (Allah). (53) And tell of Lot. He said to his people, "Will you commit evil knowingly? (54) You lust after men in place of women. You are indeed a stolid people." (55) ۞ His people had no answer but to say, "Expel Lot and his family from the town for they want to be pure." (56) Eventually We saved (Lot) and his family, except his wife. We had decreed that she should be among those who would remain behind. (57) We sent to them a terrible rainstorm. How horrible was the rain for the people who had already received warning. (58)
