Sura Al-A'raf from 74 to 81

74. And remember when He made you successors after ‘Âd ( 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 Allâh, and do not go about making mischief on the earth. « »
75. 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 Sâlih is one sent from his Lord. » They said: « We indeed believe in that with which he has been sent. »
76. Those who were arrogant said: « Verily, we disbelieve in that which you believe in. »
77. So they killed the she- camel and insolently defied the Commandment of their Lord, and said: « O Sâlih! Bring about your threats if you are indeed one of the Messengers ( of Allâh ) . »
78. So the earthquake seized them, and they lay ( dead ) , prostrate in their homes.
79. Then he [ Sâlih ] 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. »
80. And ( remember ) Lût ( Lot ) , when he said to his people: « Do you commit the worst sin such as none preceding you has committed in the ‘Âlamîn ( mankind and jinn ) ?»
81. « Verily, you practise your lusts on men instead of women. Nay, but you are a people transgressing beyond bounds ( by committing great sins ) . »
