كَاَنْ لَّمْ يَغْنَوْا فِيْهَا ۗ اَلَآ اِنَّ ثَمُوْدَا۠ كَفَرُوْا رَبَّهُمْ ۗ اَلَا بُعْدًا لِّثَمُوْدَ ࣖ ( هود: ٦٨ )
Ka al lam yaghnaw feehaaa; alaaa inna Samooda kafaroo Rabbahum; alaa bu'dal li Samood. (Hūd 11:68)
As if they had never prospered therein. Unquestionably, Thamud denied their Lord; then, away with Thamud. (Hud  : 68)

as though they had never lived there. Lo! The people of Thamūd disbelieved their Lord. Lo! Ruined were the people of Thamūd.
