The tribe of Thamud denied the Noble Messengers. 23 And they said: a mere human being from amongst us, and single! shall we follow him! verily then we should fall in error and madness. 24 Has the message been sent down upon him from among us? Rather, he is an insolent liar." 25 It was said to Saleh, “They will soon realise tomorrow who is the mischievous great liar.” 26 For We will send the she-camel by way of trial for them. So watch them, (O Salih), and possess thyself in patience! 27 And tell them that the water is to be divided between them: Each one's right to drink being brought forward (by suitable turns). 28 But they called to their companion, and he took a sword in hand, and hamstrung (her). 29 And how [severe] were My punishment and warning. 30 Verily We, We sent upon them one shout, and they became as the stubble of a fold-builder. 31 We made the Quran easy to understand, but is there anyone who would take heed? 32 The people of Lot rejected Our warning. 33 We sent a stone-hurtling storm against them, except the family of Lot whom We saved in the early hours of the morning 34 A favor from Us; thus do We reward him who gives thanks. 35 And indeed he had warned them of Our seizure in response they doubted 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 indeed, the everlasting punishment overcame them early in the morning. 38 "So taste ye My Wrath 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
