[Nuh (Noah)] said:"O my people! There is no error in me, but I am a Messenger from the Lord of the"Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists)!
"I convey unto you the Messages of my Lord and give sincere advice to you. And I know from Allah what you know not.
"Do you wonder that there has come to you a Reminder from your Lord through a man from amongst you, that he may warn you, so that you may fear Allah and that you may receive (His) Mercy?"
But they belied him, so We saved him and those along with him in the ship, and We drowned those who belied Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.). They were indeed a blind people.
And to"Ad (people, We sent) their brother Hud. He said:"O my people! Worship Allah! You have no other Ilah (God) but Him. (La ilaha ill-Allah: none has the right to be worshipped but Allah). Will you not fear (Allah)?"
The leaders of those who disbelieved among his people said:"Verily, we see you in foolishness, and verily, we think you are one of the liars."
(Hud) said:"O my people! There is no foolishness in me, but (I am) a Messenger from the Lord of the"Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists)!
"I convey unto you the Messages of my Lord, and I am a trustworthy adviser (or well-wisher) for you.
"Do you wonder that there has come to you a Reminder (and an advice) from your Lord through a man from amongst you that he may warn you? And remember that He made you successors after the people of Nuh (Noah), and increased you amply in stature. So remember the graces (bestowed upon you) from Allah, so that you may be successful."
They said:"You have come to us that we should worship Allah Alone and forsake that which our fathers used to worship. So bring us that wherewith you have threatened us if you are of the truthful."
(Hud) said:"Torment and wrath have already fallen on you from your Lord. Dispute you with me over names which you have named - you and your fathers, with no authority from Allah? Then wait, I am with you among those who wait."
So We saved him and those who were with him by a Mercy from Us, and We cut the roots of those who belied Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), and they were not believers.
And to Thamud (people, We sent) their brother Salih (Saleh). He said:"O my people! Worship Allah! You have no other Ilah (God) but Him. (La ilaha ill-Allah: none has the right to be worshipped but Allah). Indeed there has come to you a clear sign (the miracle of the coming out of a huge she-camel from the midst of a rock) from your Lord. This she-camel of Allah is a sign unto you; so you leave her to graze in Allah"s earth, and touch her not with harm, lest a painful torment should seize you.
"And remember when He made you successors after"Ad (people) and gave you habitations in the land, you build for yourselves palaces in plains, and carve out homes in the mountains. So remember the graces (bestowed upon you) from Allah, and do not go about making mischief on the earth."
The leaders of those who were arrogant among his people said to those who were counted weak - to such of them as believed:"Know you that Salih (Saleh) is one sent from his Lord." They said:"We indeed believe in that with which he has been sent."
Those who were arrogant said:"Verily, we disbelieve in that which you believe in."
So they killed the she-camel and insolently defied the Commandment of their Lord, and said:"O Salih (Saleh)! Bring about your threats if you are indeed one of the Messengers (of Allah)."
So the earthquake seized them, and they lay (dead), prostrate in their homes.
Then he [Salih (Saleh)] turned from them, and said:"O my people! I have indeed conveyed to you the Message of my Lord, and have given you good advice but you like not good advisers."
And (remember) Lout (Lot), when he said to his people:"Do you commit the worst sin such as none preceding you has committed in the"Alamin (mankind and jinns)?
