And when Our Messengers came to Abraham with the glad tidings, they said: “Surely we are going to destroy the people of this town. Because its people have been wrong-doers.
(Abraham) said: “Surely in it is Lot. (The Messengers) said: “We know better who is in it. We shall certainly deliver him and his household (followers), except his wife. She shall be of those who remain behind”.
And when Our Messengers came to Lot, he was grieved and panicked because of them and felt straitened on their account. (The Messengers) said: “Fear not, nor grieve. Surely we will deliver you and your household, except your wife. She shall be of those who remain behind”.
Surely We are the ones to bring down upon the people of this town a filth (a terrible torment) from the heaven because their transgression (obscenity).
And certainly We have left a clear Sign of it (filth, terrible torment) for a people who will use their mind (intelligence).
And to Midian (We sent) their brother Shu’aib. Then he said to them: “O my people! Become servants to Allah and wish for the latter day (the day of reaching Allah before death) and do not cause rampage in the earth, making mischief (do not prevent from wishing to reach Allah)”.
But they belied him. So a severe quake over took them. Morning found them as knelt down in their dwelling place (they were perished).
And the tribes of Ad and Thamud were shown to you! (Mentioning) their dwellings and Satan made their deeds fair-seeming to them, so he kept them back from the Way (of Allah), and they could sight (they denied yet seeing the truth).
