And assuredly We sent unto the Thamud their brother Saleh saying: worship Allah. Then lo! they became two parties contending. (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: "Ill omen do we augur from thee and those that are with thee". He said: "Your ill omen is with Allah; yea, ye are a people under trial." (47) There were in the city nine men who spread corruption in the land, and would not reform. (48) They said: "Swear to one another in the name of Allah that we shall make a sudden night swoop on Salih and his family and will then tell their heirs that we did not witness the destruction of his family. We are indeed truthful." (49) Thus they planned and We too planned, the while they did not know. (50) Then see how was the end of their plot! Verily! We destroyed them and their nation, all together. (51) Now behold their houses that lie in utter ruins because of their wrong-doing. Verily there is a Sign in this for the people who know. (52) and We saved those who believed in and feared God. (53) And Lot, when he said to his people, 'What, do you commit indecency with your eyes open? (54) Must ye needs lust after men instead of women? Nay, but ye are folk who act senselessly. (55) ۞ His people had no answer except saying: "Expel the family of Lot from your city. They are a people who would (rather) be pure!" (56) Thereupon We saved him and his household - all but his wife, whom We willed to be among those that stayed behind (57) And We rained upon them a rain; ill was the rain upon the warned. (58)
