Lot’s wife will remain behind

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)


 لَنُنَجِّيَنَّهُۥ وَأَهْلَهُۥٓ إِلَّا ٱمْرَأَتَهُۥ كَانَتْ مِنَ ٱلْغَٰبِرِينَ 32b  وَلَمَّآ أَن جَآءَتْ رُسُلُنَا لُوطًا سِىٓءَ بِهِمْ وَضَاقَ بِهِمْ ذَرْعًا وَقَالُوا۟ لَا تَخَفْ وَلَا تَحْزَنْ 33a

32b.  We are to deliver him and his household, all save his wife, who is of those who stay behind.


33a.  And when Our Messengers came unto Lot, he was worried on their account, for he could not protect them; and they said: Fear not, nor grieve!

32b.  Lanu-najjiyannahuu  wa  ‘ahlahuuu  ‘illamra-‘atahuu  kaanat  minal-  gaabiriin.


33a.  Wa  lammaaa  ‘an  jaaa-‘at  RusuluNaa  Luutan  siii-‘a  bi-him  wa  zaaqa  bihim  zar-‘anw-wa  qaaluu  laa  takhaf  wa  laa  tahzan.


The Angels (peace be upon them) said to Abraham (peace be upon him): We will surely guide to Lot (peace be upon him) to save himself and his family, but his wife will be of those who remain behind along with her folk. When the Angels said that they will destroy the township, Prophet Abraham (peace be upon him) feared that what will happen with Lot (peace be upon him). Then Angels satisfied him (peace be upon them) that not only Lot but entire members of his family will be directed to leave the township and proceed to any other place safe and sound. But the wife of Lot (peace be upon him) will stay behind and she will be destroyed along with her folk.


After saying this to Abraham (peace be upon him), the Angels (peace be upon them) set on and reached to meet Lot (peace be upon him). They said: Today we are your guests.


Lot (peace be upon him) was aware of wrong deeds of the people of own folk that they used to trouble particularly them who used to come in the township from out townships. So he (peace be upon him) was confused very much and instead of being pleased on arrival of the guests, as usually the hosts; particularly the Prophets (peace be upon them) and slaves of Allaah Almighty are pleased, was on the contrary distressed for them. He (peace be upon him) began to think: How can I protect these gentlemen from the wicked persons of my folk? When the Angels (peace be upon them) saw him discomfort and terrified, they said: You should neither fear and nor grieve.
