And indeed We sent to Thamud their brother Salih (Saleh), saying: "Worship Allah (Alone and none else). Then look! They became two parties (believers and disbelievers) quarreling with each other." (45) He said: "O my people! Why do you seek to hasten the evil (torment) before the good (Allah's Mercy)? Why seek you not the Forgiveness of Allah, that you may receive mercy?" (46) They said: We have met with ill luck on account of you and on account of those with you. He said: The cause of your evil fortune is with Allah; nay, you are a people who are tried. (47) Now in the city there were nine persons who did corruption in the land, and put not things right; (48) They said: swear by God one to another that we shall surely fall upon him and his household by night and thereafter we shall surely say unto his heir; we witnessed not the destruction of his household, and verily we are truthtellers. (49) And they planned a plan, and We planned a plan, while they perceived not. (50) Therefore see what was the result of their scheming We destroyed them and their entire nation. (51) So yonder are their houses overturned, for they did wrong. Verily, herein is a sign unto a people who know. (52) And We delivered those who believed and who guarded (against evil). (53) And [mention] Lot, when he said to his people, "Do you commit immorality while you are seeing? (54) Would ye really approach men in your lusts rather than women? Nay, ye are a people (grossly) ignorant! (55) ۞ But the answer of his people was no other except that they said: Turn out Lut's followers from your town; surely they are a people who would keep 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 [of stones], and evil was the rain of those who were warned.
