Wife of Lot was also ruined with other people

Surah ‘Al-Hijr – (The Rocky Tract) – 15

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast)

(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

قَالَ فَمَا خَطْبُكُمْ أَيُّهَاٱلْمُرْسَلُونَ 57

قَالُوٓا۟ إِنَّآ أُرْسِلْنَآ إِلَىٰ قَوْمٍ مُّجْرِمِينَ 58

إِلَّآ ءَالَ لُوطٍ إِنَّا لَمُنَجُّوهُمْ أَجْمَعِينَ 59

إِلَّا ٱمْرَأَتَهُۥ قَدَّرْنَآ إِنَّهَا لَمِنَ ٱلْغَٰبِرِينَ 60

57.  He said: What is your business, O ye messengers (of Allah)?


58.  They said: We have been sent unto a guilty folk-


59.  (All) save the family of Lot. Them we shall deliver every one-


60.  Except his wife, of whom We had decreed that she should be of those who stay behind-      

57.  Qaala  famaa  khatbu-kum  ‘ayyuhal-Mursa-luun.


58.  Qaaluuu  ‘innaaa  ‘ursil-naaa  ‘ilaa  qawmim-mujri-miina.


59.  ‘Illaaa  ‘Aala-  Luut.  ‘Innaa  la-munajjuu-hum  ‘ajma-‘iin.


60.  ‘Illamra-‘atahuu  qaddar-naaa,  ‘innahaa  la-minal-  gaabiriin.


(Section 4)    




Gaabiriin – (they stayed behind), it is the subject from ga-ba-ra. Gabar means “to leave the company of”. Gaabir means “the person who becomes separate from his colleague”.


Abraham (peace be upon him) asked from the Angels (peace be upon them): What will you do now? They answered: Now we shall go unto the folk of Lot (peace be upon him). Those people have been involved in a very bad habit and do not obey their Prophet Lot (peace be upon him). We are going to ruin them.


But we shall save Lot (peace be upon him) and his entire family members except his wife, because she will not be able to escape, and about her; Allah Almighty has caused to hear us His final decision that she should be of those who stay behind and be ruined along with other people of the folk. Due to this reason, it is our decision also that she should be ruined too. Hearing this, Prophet Abraham (peace be upon him) was silent.
