[026:160] The people of Lūt (Lot) ( who dwelt in the towns of Sodom in Palestine) denied the Messengers.
[026:161] When their brother Lūt (Lot) said to them: "Will you not fear Allāh and obey Him?
[026:162] "Verily, I am a trustworthy Messenger to you.
[026:163] "So fear Allāh, keep your duty to Him, and obey me.
[026:164] "No reward do I ask of you for it (my Message of Islāmic Monotheism); my reward is only from the Lord of the 'Ālamīn (mankind, jinn and all that exists).
[026:165] "Go you into the males of the 'Ālamīn (mankind),
[026:166] "And leave those whom Allāh has created for you to be your wives? Nay, you are a trespassing people!"
[026:167] They said: "If you cease not. O Lūt (Lot)! Verily, you will be one of those who are driven out!"
[026:168] He said: "I am indeed of those who disapprove with severe anger and fury your (this evil) action (of sodomy).
[026:169] "My Lord! Save me and my family from what they do."
[026:170] So, We saved him and his family, all,
[026:171] Except an old woman (his wife) among those who remained behind.
[026:172] Then afterward We destroyed the others.
[026:173] And We rained on them a rain (of torment). And how evil was the rain of those who had been warned!
[026:174] Verily, in this is indeed a sign, yet most of them are not believers.
[026:175] And verily your Lord, He is truly the All-Mighty, the Most Merciful.
[026:176] The dwellers of Al-Aikah [near Madyan (Midian)] denied the Messengers.
[026:177] When Shu'aib said to them: "Will you not fear Allāh and obey Him?
[026:178] "I am a trustworthy Messenger to you.
[026:179] "So fear Allāh, keep your duty to Him, and obey me.
[026:180] "No reward do I ask of you for it (my Message of Islāmic Monotheism); my reward is only from the Lord of the 'Ālamīn (mankind, jinn and all that exists).
[026:181] "Give full measure, and cause no loss (to others).
[026:182] "And weigh with the true and straight balance.
[026:183] "And defraud not people by reducing their things, nor do evil, making corruption and mischief in the land.
