قَالَ يَٰقَوْمِ هَٰٓؤُلَآءِ بَنَاتِى هُنَّ أَطْهَرُ لَكُمْ فَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَلَا تُخْزُونِ فِى ضَيْفِىٓ أَلَيْسَ مِنكُمْ رَجُلٌ رَّشِيدٌ (78  .b

قَالُوا۟ لَقَدْ عَلِمْتَ مَالَنَا فِى بَنَاتِكَ مِنْ حَقٍّ وَإِنَّكَ لَتَعْلَمُ مَا نُرِيدُ (79

78b.  He said: O my people! Here are my daughters! They are purer for you.  Beware of Allah, and degrade me not in (the presence of) my guests. Is there not among you any upright man?

79.  They said: Well thou knowest that we have no right to thy daughters, and well thou knowest what we want.

78b.  Qaala  yaa-qawmi  haaa-‘ulaaa-‘i   banaatii  hunna  ‘at-haru  lakum  fatta-qUllaaha  wa  laa  tukh-zuuni  fii  zay-fii.  ‘A-laysa  minkum  rajulur-rashiid.


79.  Qaaluu  laqad  ‘alimta  maa  lanaa fii  banaa-tika  min  haqq.  Wa  ‘innaka  la-ta’-lamu  maa  nuriid. 


Prophet Lot (peace be upon him) has been causing to understand them: Pare the nails of some of your senses. Have you become mad totally? There are many women in the folk. God Almighty has fixed the way of fulfilling own desires. Unite in matrimony with them and live like human beings. Do you not fear Allah Almighty? Do you want to disgrace me by annoying my guests? Is there not among you any upright man who may teach you humanity?

They said: We have no right to the women. You are aware of our wish. We will do certainly that which we want. We don’t obey your command.

Prophet Lot (peace be upon him) heard the answer of his folk! When a mankind becomes blind due to own wishes, nothing is seen to him and he becomes like Satan, an evil spirit. Neither he bears good works and their rewards in mind, and nor he thinks about evil deeds and their punishment. It is called “Evil Days”.
