Certainly Lot was truthful
Chapter “’Ankabuut”- (The Spider) – 29
‘A-‘uu-zu Billaahiminash-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 قَالُوا۟ ٱئْتِنَا بِعَذَابِ ٱللَّهِ إِن كُنتَ مِنَ ٱلصَّٰدِقِينَ 29b قَالَ رَبِّ ٱنصُرْنِى عَلَى ٱلْقَوْمِ ٱلْمُفْسِدِينَ 30
|29b. But the answer of his folk was only that they said: Bring Allah’s Doom upon us if thou art a truth-teller!
30. He said: My Lord! Help me against these mischievous people.
|29b. Famaa kaana jawaaba qawmihiii ‘illaaa ‘an qaalu’-tinaa bi-‘AzaaBillaahi ‘in- kunta minas-saadiqiin.
30. Qaala Rabbin-surnii ‘alal-qawmil-Mufsidiin.
The people of the folk of Lot (peace be upon him) had no reply of his advice. Being confuted; they said: Bring the Doom of Allaah upon us if you are a truthful! We shall do the same continuously whatever we have been dong.
This answer was very heart-breaker. Lot (peace be upon him) supplicated in the Court of Allaah Almighty: O my Lord! These people are ready to spread mischief and destruction. They do not attend to me. I have no Supporter save You. My Lord! Help me and give me victory upon these vicious people.
Mostly the wickedness of the mankind became foundation of destruction in the world and corrupt people were often removed from the world due to their mischief. Their stories have been recorded in Holy Qur’an for warning, so that after reciting them, the people should escape from such evil works which became cause of their ruin.
But alas! Still the mankind has been choosing such wicked deeds, by which the ruin has come upon the old people. And his obstinacy is the same which was in the past. Moving straight is difficult without the Guidance of Allaah Almighty. Our Lord! Show us the Straight Path.
