Thamood cried lies to the warnings (23) For they said: "A man! Alone from among us, that we are to follow? Truly, then we should be in error and distress or madness!" (24) Hath the remembrance been given unto him alone among us? Nay, but he is a rash liar. (25) (Unto their warner it was said): To-morrow they will know who is the rash liar. (26) “We shall send a she-camel to test them, therefore O Saleh, wait and have 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) Then they called their comrade, and he took in hand, and hamstrung her. (29) How then were My punishment and My warnings! (30) Behold, We sent a single Blast against them, and they became like the trampled twigs of a sheep pen-builder. (31) Easy have We made the Qur'an to understand: So is there any one who will be warned? (32) The people of Lout (Lot) belied the 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 Favour from Us, thus do We reward him who gives thanks (by obeying Us). (35) And he [Lout (Lot)] indeed had warned them of Our Grasp, but they did doubt the warnings! (36) They lusted after his guests, so We put out their eyes (and said): "Taste My punishment and My commination." (37) and early in the morning the punishment decreed overtook them -- (38) So have a taste of My chastisement and My warnings. (39) And We have indeed made the Qur'an easy to understand and remember: then is there any that will receive admonition? (40)
