The tribe of Thamud denied the Noble Messengers. 23 they said, "Are we to follow a man from amongst ourselves? We would surely then fall into error and madness. 24 Has the reminder been made to light upon him from among us? Nay! he is an insolent liar! 25 "Tomorrow they will know who is the impudent liar! 26 for We are [going to] send the she-camel as a trial for them, so watch them and be patient. 27 And inform them that the water is shared between them, each [day of] drink attended [by turn]. 28 But they called their companion, and he dared and hamstrung [her]. 29 How terrible was My punishment and warning. 30 Behold, We sent a single Blast against them, and they became like the trampled twigs of a sheep pen-builder. 31 Surely We have made this Qur'an easy as a reminder. Is there, then, any who will take heed? 32 LOT'S PEOPLE [too] gave the lie to all [Our] warnings: 33 Verily, We sent against them a violent storm of stones (which destroyed them all), except the family of Lout (Lot), whom We saved in last hour of the night, 34 As a Grace from Us: thus do We reward those who give thanks. 35 And he had already warned them of Our assault, but they disputed the warning. 36 And they even sought to snatch away his guests from him, but We blinded their eyes. (They heard:) "Now taste ye My Wrath and My Warning." 37 Indeed an abiding chastisement came upon them in the morning. 38 So taste My chastisement and My warning. 39 Hence, indeed, We made this Qur'an easy to bear in mind: who, then, is willing to take it to heart? 40
