 (I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)


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

وَلُوطًا إِذْ قَالَ لِقَوْمِهِۦٓ أَتَأْتُونَ ٱلْفَٰحِشَةَ وَأَنتُمْ تُبْصِرُونَ 54  أَئِنَّكُمْ لَتَأْتُونَ ٱلرِّجَالَ شَهْوَةً مِّن دُونِ ٱلنِّسَآءِ بَلْ أَنتُمْ قَوْمٌ تَجْهَلُونَ 55

54.  And Lot! When he said unto his folk: Will ye commit abomination knowingly?


55.  Must ye need lust after men instead of women? Nay, but ye are folk who act senselessly.

54.  Wa  Luutan  ‘iz  qaala  liqawmihiii  ‘a-ta’-tuunal-  faa-hishata  wa  ‘antum  tubsiruun.


55.  ‘A-‘innakum  lata’-tuunar-rijaala  shahwatam-min-  duunin-nisaaa’.  Bal  ‘antum  qawmun  taj-haluun.



In this Chapter, people of Makkah are being caused to understand that Allaah Almighty sent His Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon them) towards ancient nations to save the mankind from bad habits. Then those people who disobeyed them and continued their wickedness, were destroyed and removed from the surface of earth. But the people who were intelligent, they comprehended the Prophets (peace be upon them) from their signs and set up their judgment concerning them after observing their miracles and moral strength that opposing them will become reason of their destruction. Therefore, they became their obedient with free-will and pleasure.


Such people will remain successful in the world and in the Hereafter. So Allaah Almighty saved them from that torment, by which their rebellious companions were ruined. In this connection, it is commanded: We sent Lot (peace be upon him) to warn a vile and sinful folk. He explained before them evil of their bad work and said: How have you been involved in such abominable habit that you approach men with desire instead of women and don’t be abashed. What its reason can be save it that you have sense but have become frenzied and do the works of uncivilized people intentionally? Give up this base habit, spurn your corrupted mentality and feel sorrow for evil works you committed, otherwise you will become disabled!
