5. Prophet Saleh (AS)

After the destruction of the Ad, the tribe of Thamud succeeded them in power and glory. They erected huge buildings on the plains and hewed beautiful homes out of the hills. Saleh was known for his wisdom, purity and goodness and had been greatly respected by his people. In no time pride creeped their hearts and they started to transgress beyond bounds. Allah warned them through Saleh before sending his punishment. Allah recalls their tale in the Holy Quran as below.

[26:141] The Thamud (people) rejected the Messengers.

[26:142] Behold, their brother Salih said to them: "Will you not fear (Allah)?

[26:143] "I am to you a Messenger worthy of all trust.

[26:144] "So fear Allah, and obey me.

[26:145] "No reward do I ask of you for it: my reward is only from the Lord of the Worlds.

[26:146] "Will ye be left secure, in (the enjoyment of) all that ye have here?

[26:147] "Gardens and Springs,

[26:148] "And corn-fields and date palms with spathes near breaking (with the weight of fruit)?

[26:149] "And ye carve houses out of (rocky) mountains with great skill.

[26:150] "But fear Allah and obey me;

[26:151] "And follow not the bidding of those who are extravagant,

[26:152] "Who make mischief in the land, and mend not (their ways)."

[26:153] They said: "Thou art only one of those bewitched!

[26:154] "Thou art no more than a mortal like us: then bring us a Sign, if thou tellest the truth!"

[26:155] He said: "Here is a she-camel: she has a right of watering, and ye have a right of watering, (severally) on a day appointed.

[11:64] "And O my people! this she-camel of Allah is a symbol to you: leave her to feed on Allah's (free) earth, and inflict no harm on her, or a swift Penalty will seize you!"

[7:75] The leaders of the arrogant party among his people said to those who were reckoned powerless, those among them who believed: "Know ye indeed that Saleh is a Messenger from his Lord?" They said: "We do indeed believe in the revelation which hath been sent through him."

[7:76] The arrogant party said: "For our part, we reject what ye believe in."

[54:29] But they called to their companion, and he took a sword in hand, and hamstrung (her).

[11:65] But they did hamstring her. So he said: "Enjoy yourselves in your homes for three days: (then will be your ruin): (behold) there a promise not to be belied!"

[27:48] There were in the City nine men of a family who made mischief in the land, and would not reform.

[27:49] They said: "Swear a mutual oath by Allah that we shall make a secret night attack on him and his people, and that we shall then say to his heir (when he seeks vengeance): `We were not present at the slaughter of his people, and we are positively telling the truth.'"

[27:50] They plotted and planned, but We too planned, even while they perceived it not.

[27:51] Then see what was the end of their plot! This, that We destroyed them and their people, all (Of them).

[54:30] Ah! how (terrible) was My Penalty and My Warning!

[54:31] For We sent against them a single Mighty Blast, and they became like the dry stubble used by one who pens cattle.

[7:78] So the earthquake took them unawares, and they lay prostrate in their homes in the morning!

[11:66] When Our decree issued, We saved Saleh and those who believed with him, by (special) Grace from Ourselves, and from the Ignominy of that Day, for thy Lord, He is the Strong One, and Able to enforce His Will.

[11:68] As if they had never dwelt and flourished there. Ah! Behold! for the Thamud rejected their Lord and Cherisher! ah! behold! removed (from sight) were the Thamud!
