Thamood cried lies to the warnings 23 They said, "Should we follow only one person among us. We shall be clearly in error and in trouble (if we do so). 24 "Is it that the Reminder is sent to him [Prophet Salih (Saleh)] alone from among us? Nay, he is an insolent liar!" 25 (We told Our Messenger): “Tomorrow they shall know who is the insolent liar. 26 They shall send the She-camel as a trial for them; so watch thou them and keep patience. 27 “And inform them that the water is to be shared between them; only those may come whose turn it is.” 28 But they called their commander, who seized and hamstrung her. 29 Ah! how (terrible) was My Penalty and My Warning! 30 Indeed We sent upon them a single Scream thereupon they became like the barrier builder’s residual dry trampled hay. 31 We made the Quran easy to understand, but is there anyone who would take heed? 32 LOT'S PEOPLE [too] gave the lie to all [Our] warnings: 33 [and so,] behold, We let loose upon them a deadly tempest; and only Lot 's kinsfolk did We save at the break of dawn, 34 A favor from Us; thus do We reward him who gives thanks. 35 Lot warned them of Our punishment, but they disputed the warnings -- 36 they even wanted to seduce his guests -- but We blinded them, and said, "Taste My punishment now that you have scorned My warnings!" -- 37 And certainly a lasting chastisement overtook them in the morning. 38 So now taste My punishment and My commination! 39 And We have certainly made the Qur'an easy for remembrance, so is there any who will remember? 40
