And assuredly We sent unto the Thamud their brother Saleh saying: worship Allah. Then lo! they became two parties contending. (45) He said: "O my people! why ask ye to hasten on the evil in preference to the good? If only ye ask Allah for forgiveness, ye may hope to receive mercy. (46) They said: 'We predict an evil omen from you and those who are with you' He replied: 'Your prediction is with Allah, you are a nation being tested' (47) There were nine tribes in the city spreading evil without any reform in the land. (48) They said, "Let us swear by God to do away with him and his family during the night then tell his guardian that we did not see how he and his family had been destroyed, and we shall be telling the truth." (49) So they plotted a plot: and We plotted a plot, while they perceived not. (50) Therefore see what was the result of their scheming We destroyed them and their entire nation. (51) So those are their houses fallen down because they were unjust, most surely there is a sign in this for a people who know. (52) And We delivered those who believed and who guarded (against evil). (53) Lot asked his people, "Do you understandably commit indecency? (54) What! do you indeed approach men lustfully rather than women? Nay, you are a people who act ignorantly. (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) So We delivered him and his family, except his wife: We ordained her to be one of those who stayed behind, (57) And We rained a rain upon them. Dreadful is the rain of those who have been warned. (58)
