Lut and His Call Print E-mail

Here Allah tells us about His servant and Messenger Lut, peace be upon him. He was Lut bin Haran bin Azar, the nephew of Ibrahim Al-Khalil, upon him be peace. Allah sent him to a mighty nation during the lifetime of Ibrahim, peace be upon them both. They lived in Sadum (Sodom) and its environs, where Allah destroyed them and turned the area into a putrid, stinking lake, which is well-known in the land of Al-Ghur ﴿the Jordan Valley﴾, bordering the mountains of Jerusalem, between the mountains and the land of Al-Karak and Ash-Shawbak. He called them to Allah, to worship Him alone with no partner or associate, and to obey the Messenger whom Allah sent to them. He forbade from disobeying Allah and committing the sin that they had invented which was unknown on earth before their time; intercourse with males instead of with females. Allah said:

﴿أَتَأْتُونَ الذُّكْرَانَ مِنَ الْعَـلَمِينَ - وَتَذَرُونَ مَا خَلَقَ لَكُمْ رَبُّكُمْ مِّنْ أَزْوَجِكُمْ بَلْ أَنتُمْ قَوْمٌ عَادُونَ - قَالُواْ لَئِن لَّمْ تَنتَهِ يلُوطُ لَتَكُونَنَّ مِنَ الْمُخْرَجِينَ - قَالَ إِنِّى لِعَمَلِكُمْ مِّنَ الْقَـلِينَ ﴾

رَبّ نَّجِنِى وَأَهْلِى مِمَّا يَعْمَلُونَ- فَنَجَّيْنَـهُ وَأَهْلَهُ أَجْمَعِينَ- إِلاَّ عَجُوزاً فِى الْغَـبِرِينَ- ثُمَّ دَمَّرْنَا الاْخَرِينَ- وَأَمْطَرْنَا عَلَيْهِم مَّطَراً فَسَآء مَطَرُ الْمُنذَرِينَ- إِنَّ فِى ذَلِكَ لاَيَةً وَمَا كَانَ أَكْثَرُهُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ- وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الرَّحِيمُ-﴾

(165. "Go you in unto the males of Al-`Alamin (people),'') (166. "And leave those whom Allah has created for you to be your wives Nay, you are a trespassing people!'') (167. They said: "If you cease not, O Lut, verily, you will be one of those who are driven out!'') (168. He said: "I am indeed of those who disapprove with severe anger and fury your behavior.'') (169. "My Lord! Save me and my family from what they do.'') (170. So, We saved him and his family, all,) (171. Except an old woman among those who remained behind.) (172. Then afterward We destroyed the others.) (173. And We rained on them a rain, and how evil was the rain of those who had been warned!) (174. Verily, in this is indeed a sign, yet most of them are not believers.) (175. And verily your Lord, He is indeed the All-Mighty, the Most Merciful.)
