قَالَ یَـٰقَوۡمِ لِمَ تَسۡتَعۡجِلُونَ بِٱلسَّیِّئَةِ قَبۡلَ ٱلۡحَسَنَةِۖ
 لَوۡلَا تَسۡتَغۡفِرُونَ ٱللَّهَ لَعَلَّكُمۡ تُرۡحَمُونَ
The theme of the Surah is divine guidance in history. Allah sent His Prophets to different people. Some accepted them and were guided, while others denied them and they saw the consequences of their denial. The Surah also contrasts between the principles of Tawhid and shirk.
صالح نے کہا کہ بھائیو
 تم بھلائی سے پہلے برائی کے لئے 
کیوں جلدی کرتے ہو (اور) خدا سے 
بخشش کیوں نہیں مانگتے تاکہ تم پر رحم کیا جائے
