Wife of Lot was ruined

Chapter Naml”- (The Ant) – 27

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.

 (I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)


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

فَمَا كَانَ جَوَابَ قَوْمِهِۦٓ إِلَّآ أَن قَالُوٓا۟ أَخْرِجُوٓا۟ ءَالَ لُوطٍ مِّن قَرْيَتِكُمْ إِنَّهُمْ أُنَاسٌ يَتَطَهَّرُونَ 56  فَأَنجَيْنَٰهُ وَأَهْلَهُۥٓ إِلَّا ٱمْرَأَتَهُۥ 57a

56.  But the answer of his folk was naught save that they said: Expel the household of Lot from your township, for they (forsooth) are folk who would keep clean!


57a.  Then We saved him and his household save his wife;

56.  Famaa  kaana  jawaaba  qawmihiii  ‘illaaa  ‘an  qaaluuu  ‘akhrijuuu  ‘aala  Luutim-min-  qar-yatikum.  ‘Innahum  ‘unaa-suny-yata-tah-haruun.


57a.  Fa-‘anjayNaahu  wa  ‘ahlahuuu  ‘illamra-‘atah.



Prophet Lot (peace be upon him) abashed the shameless people of his tribe in such a way that they could not reply in return. There can be no answer of any reasonable matter. He (peace be upon him) described their stupidity and evil of their immoral works also in only one sentence, and put them to shame on their ignorance, and told them reasonable cause of their evil deeds. So they could not give answer of such correct advice. Rather, what is the cure of it that when some quarrelsome men cannot give reasonable answer of a matter, they begin to fight and create disturbance, and revengefully they commit any such work, which a mankind can never do. However, if he becomes mere an animal and beast of prey; then it is another matter.


It is commanded: The people of Lot (peace be upon him) had no answer to give except that they said: Expel him along with his family from your city, otherwise he (peace be upon him) will continue wearying you. They are the people who keep themselves pure, so they do not have any work here to do.


Think for awhile! How a great brain disease they had. They had begun to consider that chastity and morality were bad things. And remaining drenched in filth was agreeable to them. They were created in mankind form but their nature had become like hogs.


It is commanded: We destroyed those immoral people, saved Lot (peace be upon him) and his family. Only his wife was ruined along with her tribe.
