BisMIllaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

And We rescued him and his household, save his wife, who was of those who stayed behind. Fa- ‘anjay-Naahu  wa  ‘ahlahuuu  ‘illam-ra-‘atahuu  kaanat  minal-  gaabiriin. 

Lesson                                                             

Gaabiriin – (who stayed behind), this word is plural of gaabir, which has been derived from gabar. Gabar means “to pass and to stay behind). However, here it means “to stay behind”. And the aim from gaabiriin is “those people who had stayed behind after the departure of Prophet Lot (peace be upon Him), His household and His believers”.

 

Many people are suffering from this mania that “we know that, which other people do not know”. They consider that their knowledge is more than all others. They make guide to their own desires only and follow them by closing own eyes. They commit evil deeds totally, but take up with their mind that: those acts are able to be done, which we do. Actually the matter is it that “numerous persons agree to them without any knowledge, and due to weakness of others, the power comes into their hands. But management of the world remained something like it; that during every era, the Prophets and Messengers of Allah Almighty (peace be upon Them) have been sent unto the humankind, before the last Messenger Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him). And after His Apostleship, no Prophet or Messenger will come for the guidance of human beings, however it has been arranged that the Revivers of the Religion will be coming continuously and they will keep reminding the Commands of God Almighty and Sayings of His last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) to the people who forgot.

 

In addition to the apparent eyes of a Messenger (peace be upon Him), His mystic eyes are open also and He looks everything with His inner light. He (peace be upon Him) observes clearly: Such act has been carrying the selfish people of the world unto the destruction, which they have been committing. Punishment for their fault distressing (due to their evil deeds) is going to fall to their lot within a few days.

 

The Messenger (peace be upon Him) is convinced that the Creator of this universe does not like their wicked acts. When their evil deeds will exceed the limits, then He will impose upon them any vigorous Power out of His unlimited Powers and Forces in any form, and that Power will ruin them.

 

The Messenger (peace be upon Them) caused to understand this to those disobedient people, but they do not understand and they are ruined miserably. The people of Prophet Lot (peace be upon Him) were suffering from this misunderstanding too. He (peace be upon Him) explained to them several times, but they did not understand His Saying. At last that happened, which has been mentioned in this verse.

 

It is commanded: We rescued him {Lot (peace be upon Him)} and his household (along with His believers). They fled the town overnight and were saved, but His wife joined her nation. The Commentators (Mufassiriin) have explained that this unfortunate woman did neither believe, notwithstanding, living in the house of Lot (peace be upon Him); a Prophet and being mother of His two daughters, and nor accepted His any advice. Moreover, she remained a sympathizer and like-minded of her nation. For ostentation, she walked along with her Husband and daughters, but kept looking behind by turning her face again and again. This love of disobedient nation ruined her too along with her nation, and a stone broke her scalp and finished.

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

They are folk, forsooth, who keep pure. ‘Innahum  ‘unaasuny-yatatah-haruun.

Lesson

When Prophet Lot (peace be upon Him) warned the people of Sodom, they could not produce any reasonable argument in favor of their devilish act of humanity-rending. Whatever they said, that was of the same peculiarity as the nation of Prophet Abraham (peace be upon Him) said to one another being confuted, that He should be thrown into the fire. Discussing so by them was not the answer of Abraham’s Reason, but it was an admission of their transgression and persistence to stand firm on it without grounds. The same admission and persistence is found in this case also. It was told in the previous part of this verse. In this part, that indictment has been mentioned, which was charged against Lot (peace be upon Him) by His folk.

 

It is commanded that the folk of Lot (peace be upon Him) could not answer to His reasonable Sayings, at last, they began to say to one another, being humiliated: This Lot (peace be upon Him) and His disciples will continue to annoy us. They will not let us do easily, what we are doing or what we wish to do, so, expel them from your city, because there is only one form to shake off from them.

 

Then they thought: Any reason should be searched to banish them from the city, so that, we should not be accused and the responsibility of banishment should fall to their own lot. But in spite of seeking any such cause into those sincere people, they could not find any reason, punishment of which was to be exiled.

 

When someone is out of one’s wits, then the good seems him the bad and the bad seems the good. Whenever those people become rulers, who have such inverted scalp, they fix the good work of the good people as an offence. Abstract of their reason is nothing other than imposture and perverseness. They determine those bad habits forcibly as good, which they have adopted, although they have to be confuted in their hearts that; yes! We have bad habits.

 

Sometimes, it happens that they begin to consider that their base matters are really good. It means that their conscience has been dead. It was the condition of the tribe of Lot (peace be upon Him). They had been habituated to remain wet in filth and stench, and began to consider it good. Purity and chasteness had become bad thing for them. Accordingly, they decided that Lot (peace be upon Him) and His companions are culprits of remaining chaste, clean and pure. Therefore, they should be turned out from this country.

 

It is to think that due to which act, sense of mankind is turned over and understanding is changed, if that act is not the killer of the humanity then what is it? Do the people, who commit such evil, deserve to live? Do they consider that an oppressive wave of flight and rage has not been producing against them anywhere in the world? If these evil doers think so, then they are in a manifest error. A law is underway in the world that the result of every act will come out certainly. None can escape from its power. Here it is late, but not arbitrariness.
