Abraham was mild, imploring and penitent

Surah Huud (Hud) – 11


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

 فَلَمَّا ذَهَبَعَنْ إِبْرَٰهِيمَ ٱلرَّوْعُ وَجَآءَتْهُ ٱلْبُشْرَىٰ يُجَٰدِلُنَا فِى قَوْمِ لُوطٍ 74

إِنَّ إِبْرَٰهِيمَ لَحَلِيمٌ أَوَّٰهٌ مُّنِيبٌ (75

 يَٰٓإِبْرَٰهِيمُ أَعْرِضْ عَنْ هَٰذَآ إِنَّهُۥ قَدْ جَآءَ أَمْرُ رَبِّكَ وَإِنَّهُمْ ءَاتِيهِمْ عَذَابٌ غَيْرُ مَرْدُودٍ (76

74.  And when the awe departed from Abraham, and the glad news reached him, he pleaded with Us on behalf of the folk of Lot.


75.  Lo! Abraham was mild, imploring, penitent.


76.  (It was said) O Abraham! Forsake this! Lo! Thy Lord’s commandment hath gone forth, and lo! There cometh unto them a doom which cannot be repelled.

74.  Falammaa  zahaba  ‘an  ‘Ibraa-hiimar-raw-‘u  wa jaaa-‘at-hul-bushraa  yujaa-diluNaa  fii  Qawmi  Luut.


75.  ‘Inna  ‘Ibraa-hiima  la-halii-mun  ‘awwaa-hum-muniib.


76.  Yaaa-‘Ibraa-hiimu  ‘a’-riz  ‘an  haazaa.  ‘Innahuu  qad  jaaa-‘a  ‘amru  Rabbik.  Wa  ‘inna-hum  ‘aatii-him  ‘azaabun  gayru  mar-duud.         




‘Awwaa-hun – (imploring), this word is an adjective which has been derived fro ‘a-wa-hun. ‘A-wa-hun means “to utter grief in outcries, to lament”. ‘Awwaa-hun is the person who mourns when he sees any other in trouble.


After hearing glad news from the Angels (peace be upon them), all awe of Abraham (peace be upon him) departed. When he got satisfaction from this side; then thought about the folk of Lot (peace be upon them); that they would be ruined.


Naturally, Messenger Abraham (peace be upon him) was imploring and forgiver of the wrongdoers, who used to get support of Allah Almighty. He (peace be upon him) began to argue with the Angels concerning the folk of Lot (peace be upon him). That conversation between the Angels and Abraham (peace be upon them) has been named by Allah Almighty as yujaa-diluNaa (he pleaded with Us). Allah Almighty describes its reason that Abraham (peace be upon him) was mild; who used to excuse the sinner, imploring; who used to lament by observing others in difficulties, and penitent; who used to produce every matter in the Court of Allah Almighty.


Allah Almighty commanded about the intercession by Abraham (peace be upon him) for the folk of Lot (peace be upon him) that their matter has passed from the limit of recommendation. Now they cannot be given respite even for a moment, because they have been destroying social life of the human beings by carnal copulation against nature (sodomy).
