007.067 He said: "O my people! I am no imbecile, but (I am) a messenger from the Lord and Cherisher of the worlds!
007.068 "I but fulfil towards you the duties of my Lord's mission: I am to you a sincere and trustworthy adviser.
007.069 "Do ye wonderthat there hath come to you a message from your Lord througha man of your own people, to warn you? call in remembrance that He made you inheritors after the people of Noah, and gave you a stature tall among the nations. Callin remembrance the benefits (ye have received) from God: that so ye may prosper."
007.070 They said:"Comest thou to us, that we may worship God alone, and give up the cult of our fathers? bring us whatthou threatenest us with, if so be that thou tellest the truth!"
007.071 He said:"Punishment and wrath have already come upon you from your Lord: dispute ye with me over names which ye have devised - ye and your fathers,- without authority from God? then wait: I am amongst you, also waiting."
007.072 We saved him and those who adhered to him. By Our mercy, and We cut off the roots of those who rejected Our Signsand did not believe.
007.073 To the Thamud people (We sent) Salih, one of theirown brethren: He said:"O my people! worship God: ye have no other god but Him. Now hathcome unto you a clear (Sign) from your Lord! This she-camel of God is a Sign unto you: So leave her to graze in God's earth, and let hercome to no harm, or yeshall be seized with a grievous punishment. 007.074 "And remember how He made you inheritors after the 'Ad people and gave you habitations in the land: ye build for yourselves palaces and castles in (open) plains, and carve out homes in themountains; so bring to remembrance the benefits (ye have received) from God, and refrain from evil and mischief on the earth."
007.075 The leaders ofthe arrogant party among his people said to those who were reckoned powerless - those among them who believed: "know ye indeed that Salih is a messenger from his Lord?" They said: "We do indeed believe in therevelation which hath been sent through him."
007.076 The Arrogant party said: "For our part, we reject what ye believe in."
007.077 Then they ham-strung the she-camel, and insolently defied the order of their Lord, saying: "O Salih! bring about thy threats, if thou art a messenger (of God)!"
007.078 So the earthquake took them unawares, and they lay prostrate in their homes in the morning!
007.079 So Salih left them, saying: "O my people! I did indeed convey to you the message for which I was sent by my Lord: Igave you good counsel,but ye love not good counsellors!"
007.080 We also (sent)Lut: He said to his people: "Do ye commit lewdness such as no people in creation (ever) committed before you? 007.081 "For ye practise your lusts on men in preference to women : ye are indeed a people transgressing beyond bounds."
007.082 And his people gave no answer but this: they said, "Drive them out of your city: these are indeed men who want to be clean and pure!"
007.083 But we saved him and his family, except his wife: she was of those who lagged behind.
007.084 And we rained down on them a shower (of brimstone):Then see what was the end of those who indulged in sin and crime!
007.085 To the Madyanpeople We sent Shu'aib, one of their own brethren: he said:"O my people! worship God; Ye have no other god but Him. Now hathcome unto you a clear (Sign) from your Lord! Give just measure and weight, nor withhold from the people the things that are their due; and do no mischief on the earth after it has been set inorder: that will be best for you, if ye have Faith.
007.086 "And squat not on every road, breathing threats, hindering from the path of God those whobelieve in Him, and seeking in it somethingcrooked; But remember how ye were little, and He gave you increase. Andhold in your mind's eye what was the end of those who did mischief.
007.087 "And if there isa party among you who believes in the message with which I have been sent, and a party which does not believe, hold yourselves in patience until God doth decide between us: for He is the best to decide.
