Prophet Salih (a.s)

[7:73] And to Samood (We sent) their brother Salih. He said: O my people! Serve Allah, you have no god other than Him; clear proof indeed has come to you from your Lord; this is (as) Allah's she-camel for you a sign, therefore leave her alone to pasture on Allah's earth, and do not touch her with any harm, otherwise painful chastisement will over- take you.

[7:74] And remember when He made you successors after Ad and settled you in the land, you make mansions on its plains and hew out houses in the mountains, remember therefore Allah's benefits and do not act corruptly in the land, making mischief.

[7:75] The chief of those who behaved proudly among his people said to those who were considered weak, to those who believed from among them: Do you know that Salih is sent by his Lord? They said: Surely we are believers in what he has been sent with

[7:76] Those who were haughty said: Surely we are deniers of what you believe in.

[7:77] So they slew the she-camel and revolted against their Lord's commandment, and they said: O Salih! Bring us what you threatened us with, if you are one of the messengers.

[7:78] Then the earthquake overtook them, so they became motionless bodies in their abode.

[7:79] Then he turned away from them and said: O my people I did certainly deliver to you the message of my Lord, and I gave you good advice, but you do not love those who give good advice.

[11:61] And to Samood (We sent) their brother Salih. He said: O my people! Serve Allah, you have no god other than He; He brought you in- to being from the earth, and made you dwell in it, therefore ask forgive- ness of Him, then turn to Him; surely my Lord is Nigh, Answering.

[11:62] They said: O Salih! Surely you were one amongst us in whom great expectations were placed before this; do you (now) forbid us from worshipping what our fathers worshipped? And as to that which you call us to, most surely we are in disquieting doubt.

[11:63] He said: O my people! Tell me if I have clear proof from my Lord and He has granted to me mercy from Himself, who will then help me against Allah if I disobey Him? Therefore you do not add to me other than loss:

[11:64] And, O my people! This will be (as) Allah's she-camel for you, a sign; therefore leave her to pasture on Allah's earth and do not touch her with evil, for then a near chastisement will overtake you.

[11:65] But they slew her, so he said: Enjoy yourselves in your abode for three days, that is a promise not to be belied.

[11:66] So when Our decree came to pass, We delivered Salih and those who believed with him by mercy from Us, and (We saved them) from the disgrace of that day; surely your Lord is the Strong, the Mighty.

[11:67] And the rumbling overtook those who were unjust, so they be- came motionless bodies in their abodes,

[11:68] As though they had never dwelt in them; now surely did Samood disbelieve in their Lord; now surely, away with Samood.

[15:80] And the dwellers of the Rock certainly rejected the messengers;

[15:81] And We gave them Our communications, but they turned aside from them;

[15:82] And they hewed houses in the mountains in security.

[15:83] So the rumbling overtook them in the morning;

[15:84] And what they earned did not avail them.

[17:59] And nothing could have hindered Us that We should send signs except that the ancients rejected them; and We gave to Samood the she-camel, a manifest sign, but on her account they did injustice, and We do not send signs but to make (men) fear.

[26:141] Samood gave the lie to the messengers

[26:142] When their brother Salih said to them: Will you not guard (against evil)?

[26:143] Surely I am a faithful messenger to you

[26:144] Therefore guard against (the punishment of) Allah and obey me:

[26:145] And I do not ask you any reward for it; my reward is only with the Lord of the worlds:

[26:146] Will you be left secure in what is here;

[26:147] In gardens and fountains,

[26:148] And cornfields and palm-trees having fine spadices?

[26:149] And you hew houses out of the mountains exultingly;

[26:150] Therefore guard against (the punishment of) Allah and obey me;

[26:151] And do not obey the bidding of the extravagant,

[26:152] Who make mischief in the land and do not act aright.

[26:153] They said: You are only of the deluded ones;

[26:154] You are naught but a mortal like ourselves; so bring a sign if you are one of the truthful.

[26:155] He said: This is a she-camel; she shall have her portion of water, and you have your portion of water on an appointed time;

[26:156] And do not touch her with evil, lest the punishment of a grievous day should overtake you.

[26:157] But they hamstrung her, then regretted;

[26:158] So the punishment overtook them. Most surely there is a sign in this, but most of them do not believe.

[27:45] And certainly We sent to Samood their brother Salih, saying: Serve Allah; and lo! They became two sects quarrelling with each other.

[27:46] He said: O my people! Why do you seek to hasten on the evil before the good? Why do you not ask forgiveness of Allah so that you may be dealt with mercifully?

[27:47] 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.

[27:48] And there were in the city nine persons who made mischief in the land and did not act aright.

[27:49] They said: Swear to each other by Allah that we will certainly make a sudden attack on him and his family by night, then we will say to his heir: We did not witness the destruction of his family, and we are most surely truthful.

[27:50] And they planned a plan, and We planned a plan while they perceived not.

[27:51] See, then, how was the end of their plan that We destroyed them and their people, all (of them).

[27:52] So those are their houses fallen down because they were unjust, most surely there is a sign in this for a people who know.

[27:53] And We delivered those who believed and who guarded (against evil).

[29:38] And (We destroyed) Ad and Samood, and from their dwellings (this) is apparent to you indeed; and the Shaitan made their deeds fair-seeming to them, so he kept them back from the path, though they were endowed with intelligence and skill,

[41:17] And as to Samood, We showed them the right way, but they chose error above guidance, so there overtook them the scourge of an abasing chastisement for what they earned.

[41:18] And We delivered those who believed and guarded (against evil).

[51:43] And in Samood: When it was said to them: Enjoy yourselves for a while.

[51:44] But they revolted against the commandment of their Lord, so the rumbling overtook them while they saw.

[51:45] So they were not able to rise up, nor could they defend themselves-

[54:23] Samood rejected the warning.

[54:24] So they said: What! A single mortal from among us! Shall we follow him? Most surely we shall in that case be in sure error and distress:

[54:25] Has the reminder been made to light upon him from among us? Nay! He is an insolent liar!

[54:26] Tomorrow shall they know who is the liar, the insolent one.

[54:27] Surely We are going to send the she-camel as a trial for them; therefore watch them and have patience.

[54:28] And inform them that the water is shared between them; every share of the water shall be regulated.

[54:29] But they called their companion, so he took (the sword) and slew (her).

[54:30] How (great) was then My punishment and My warning!

[54:31] Surely We sent upon them a single cry (earthquake), so they were like the dry fragments of trees which the maker of an enclosure collects.

[69:4] Samood and Ad called the striking calamity a lie.

[69:5] Then as to Samood, they were destroyed by an excessively severe punishment.

[91:11] Samood gave the lie (to the truth) in their inordinacy,

[91:12] When the most unfortunate of them broke forth with

[91:13] So Allah's messenger said to them (Leave alone) Allah's she-camel, and (give) her (to) drink.

[91:14] But they called him a liar and slaughtered her, therefore their Lord crushed them for their sin and levelled them (with the ground).

[91:15] And He fears not its consequence.
