Thamud gave the lie to the warnings, 23 So they said, “What! Shall we follow a man from among us? If we do, we are indeed astray, and insane!” 24 "Is it that the Message is sent to him, of all people amongst us? Nay, he is a liar, an insolent one!" 25 Tomorrow they will come to know, who is the liar, the insolent one! 26 We are sending the she-camel to them to test them. So watch them and be patient. 27 And inform them that the water is shared between them, each [day of] drink attended [by turn]. 28 But they called their companion, so he took (the sword) and slew (her). 29 And how [severe] were My punishment and warning. 30 Behold, We let loose upon them one single blast [of Our punishment,] and they became like the dried-up, crumbling twigs of a sheepfold. 31 We have made the Koran an easy Remembrance, is there any that will remember! 32 The people of Lut rejected (his) warning. 33 Verily We! We sent upon them a gravel-storm save the household of Lut; them We delivered at early dawn. 34 As a favour from Us. Thus We recompense him who giveth thanks. 35 He had warned them of Our assault but they disputed the warnings. 36 And they indeed sought to shame his guest (by asking to commit sodomy with them). So We blinded their eyes, "Then taste you My Torment and My Warnings." 37 And early in the morning the decreed punishment came upon them. 38 "So taste ye My Wrath and My Warning." 39 Surely We have made this Qur'an easy as a reminder. Is there, then, any who will take heed? 40
