Lot (26:160 – 26:175)

Lot

[26:160] The people of Lot disbelieved the messengers. [26:161] Their brother Lot said to them, “Would you not be righteous? [26:162] “I am an honest messenger to you. [26:163] “You shall reverence GOD, and obey me. [26:164] “I do not ask you for any wage; my wage comes only from the Lord of the universe. [26:165] “Do you have sex with the males, of all the people? [26:166] “You forsake the wives that your Lord has created for you! Indeed, you are transgressing people.” [26:167] They said, “Unless you refrain, O Lot, you will be banished.” [26:168] He said, “I deplore your actions.” [26:169] “My Lord, save me and my family from their works.” [26:170] We saved him and all his family. [26:171] But not the old woman; she was doomed. [26:172] We then destroyed the others. [26:173] We showered them with a miserable shower; what a terrible shower for those who had been warned! [26:174] This should be a lesson, but most people are not believers. [26:175] Most assuredly, your Lord is the Almighty, Most Merciful.

[27:54] Lot said to his people, “How could you commit such an abomination, publicly, while you see? [27:55] “You practice sex with the men, lustfully, instead of the women. Indeed, you are ignorant people.” [27:56] The only response from his people was their saying, “Banish Lot’s family from your town; they are people who wish to be pure.”

[7:80] Lot said to his people, “You commit such an abomination; no one in the world has done it before! [7:81] “You practice sex with the men, instead of the women. Indeed, you are a transgressing people.” [7:82] His people responded by saying, “Evict them from your town. They are people who wish to be pure.”

[15:67] The people of the city came joyfully. [15:68] He said, “These are my guests; do not embarrass me. [15:69] “Fear GOD, and do not shame me.” [15:70] They said, “Did we not enjoin you from contacting anyone?” [15:71] He said, “Here are my daughters, if you must.” [15:72] But, alas, they were totally blinded by their lust.

Lot [29:28] Lot said to his people, “You commit such an abomination, no one in the world has ever done it before you. [29:29] “You practice sex with the men, you commit highway robbery, and you allow all kinds of vice in your society.” The only response from his people was to say, “Bring to us GOD’s retribution, if you are truthful.” [29:30] He said, “My Lord, grant me victory over these wicked people.”

[8:25] Beware of a retribution that may not be limited to the evildoers among you.* You should know that GOD’s retribution is severe.

*8:25 A community that tolerates homosexuality, for example, may be hit by an earthquake.
