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) 'My nation' he said, 'why do you wish to hasten evil rather than good? Why do you not ask the forgiveness of Allah, in order that you find mercy' (46) They said: "We augur ill omen from you and those with you." He said: "Your ill omen is with Allah; nay, but you are a people that are being tested." (47) There were in the city nine men of a family, who made mischief in the land, and would not reform. (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) So they plotted a plot, and We planned a plan, while they perceived not. (50) Then see how was the end of their plot! Verily! We destroyed them and their nation, all together. (51) So these are their houses fallen flat, the recompense of their injustice; indeed in this is a sign for people who know. (52) And We saved those who believed and used to fear Allah. (53) And (remember) Lut when he said to his people, “What! You stoop to the shameful whereas you can see?” (54) “What! You lustfully go towards men, leaving the women?! In fact, you are an ignorant people.” (55) ۞ But this had only one answer from his people. They said: "Expel Lot's folk from your city. They pretend to be absolutely clean." (56) So We delivered him and his family, except his wife; We decreed she should be of those that tarried. (57) And We rained down on them a shower (of brimstone): and evil was the shower on those who were admonished (but heeded not)! (58)
