We are your Creator& Nurturer's Emissaries; they cannot overtake you; travel with your family in a part of the night; and make sure that none of you are left behind, except your wife which will remain to receive the same doom as wrongdoers do; morning is their appointed time, is not the morning near?"

THE COMMENTARY

THE END OF THIS GROUP OF OPPRESSORS

VERSE NO. 81 – 83

      At last when the angels saw that Lot was mentally in a great stress and is in trouble about the existing situation, they disclosed themselves and declared their mission as the Messengers of God, saying:

      ``O, Lot! We are your Lord's Messengers. So don't worry, that, they will never touch you.''

      As it is revealed in the S 54:33, Lot did warn his wicked people of God's wrath and the coming of an awful day for their punishment, but they paid no heed to the warning and proceeded to take away his handsome guests! As they came forth suddenly their eyes were all blinded and in that darkness they heard a voice saying:ِ

      ``Now taste you my wrath and believe the warnings! This was the beginning of their dreadful chastisement....''

      However, recognizing the angels who were in the guise of young beautiful man, revived Lot and infused a new blood into his veins, and felt a happiness in the depth of his heartِhis beloved Lord and friend had come to his help.

      Then the angels told Lot: - ``Set forth with your house-hold and the others who have believed with you in the dark of the night, and let none of you look behind, except your wife who has to share the fate of those who are doomed. She will not follow your instruction and will lag behind among those who perish.''

      When Lot and those who believed with him left the town behind, the terrible event began! The cities and the suburbs were agitated with irregular vibratory motions due to an awful earthquake, and by morning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were all overturned, so that its highest points became its lowest points, and after that a shower of pellets made of baked clay and hard as stones, rained upon the inhabitants and piled up on them.

      SIJJIL is a compound Persian word Arabicised composed of SANG, and GILL, which might have been very hard pellets of baked clay.

 

 

HOMOSEXUALITY

The people of Lot were so awfully chastised for being homosexuals. Homosexuality among men and woman is unlawful in Islam, and it is counted among mortal and capital sins, and has retaliatory punishment, which is death for men, and a hundred whips for women.

 

      To prove the act is not that easy in our religion. There must be four just and virtuous men to witness and to testify that they have seen the indecent act; or the accused has to confess that he has done so, not once or twice, but at least four times and in different conditions and states. When the sin has clearly been proved, he is condemned to death, and she is to be whipped a hundred lashes.

PEDERASTY 

 (Not only Islam, but almost all the religions, and in particular that of the Jews and Christians have condemned the pederast to death.

      The people of Lot were lost on account of pederasty and this is clearly stated in the Holy Qurän S 7:80ِ84 as follows: -

      ``And also make a mention of Lot in the Book, when he said to his people:ِ Do you commit lewdness such that no one in the world ever committed before you!? You have sexual intercourse with men instead of women! You are indeed a degenerated people.'' In answer to him Lot's people said: - ``Banish him and his followers from your town that they are men who seek to keep clean.''

      Pederasty in the Law of Moses, which is the law of Christians too; has been declared as a heinous and major sin, and the pederast is condemned to death. With reference to LEVITICUS-ِ20:13 we read: -

      ``If a man has sexual relations with another man or a boy, they have done a disgusting thing and both of them shall be put to death. They are responsible for their own death.''

WHY HOMOSEXUALITY IS UNLAWFUL?

      Although sex aberration prevails widely in the West, so that its impudence and inviolability has generally been violated, and in some countries like England, it has officially been declared as lawful, yet its increase will not decrease its ugliness and evil consequences in man's society.

       Some may reason that they do not see any medical objection in that sort of sexual intercourse; while most of the doctors of Medicine have come to it as the source of the mysterious disease of Aids which nowadays is the general topic of conversation.

      Anything which is perverted from its natural way will go wrong and reach a cul-de-sac, or point of Fall. He who continues with such evil deeds will soon lose his affections to the opposite sex and this sort of a disease is indeed a calamity in the physical and spiritual life of both sexes. And also as another consequence of this evil act, man will obtain the feelings of woman and vice versa. Such people are eventually attracted to alcoholic beverages, and then captivated by intoxicants.

LOT IN THE BIBLE

      The above story of Lot and the punishment of Sodom and Gomorrah, has also been narrated in the Bible, but in a primitive tongue and literature, and in some cases abusing to God and His apostles! Comparing the two narrations will easily prove to our dear reader that the difference is not that of a learned narrator and an unlearned writer. It rather is the difference between God and man!

 

GOD APPEARS TO ABRAHAM IN GUISE OF MAN!

GENESIS-18 

      The Lord appeared to ABRAHAM at the Sacred trees of Mamre, when ABRAHAM was sitting at the entrance of his tent during the hottest part of the day. He looked up and saw three men standing there. As soon as he saw them he ran out to meet them, bowing down with his face touching the ground. He said:- "Sirs! Please do not pass by my home without stopping. I am here to serve you. Let me bring some water for you to wash your feet. You can have a rest here beneath this tree…." They replied thank you, we accept.

      ABRAHAM hurried into the tent and said to Särah: - ``QUICK! Take a sack of your best flour and bake some bread. Then he ran to the herd and picked out a calf that was tender and fat, and gave it to a servant who hurried to get it ready.''

      There under the tree he served them and they ate! Then they asked where is your wife Särah? She is there in the tent; answered he. One of them said: - ``Nine months from now I will come back and your wife Särah will have a son!''

      Särah was behind the door of the tent listening. ABRAHAM and SÄRAH were very old, and Särah had stopped having her monthly period. So she laughed to herself and said: - ``Now that I am an old woman and worn out, can I still enjoy sex?''

   13- Then the Lord asked ABRAHAM: - ``Why did Särah laugh and say can I really have a child when I am so old? Is anything too hard for the Lord? As I said, nine months from now I will return and Särah will have a son.'' Särah was afraid and she denied to have laughed! But the Lord said, yes you did laugh.

 

 

ABRAHAM PLEADS FOR SODOM & GOMORRAH

   20- Then the Lord said to Abraham: - ``There are terrible accusations against Sodom and Gomorrah and their sin is very great. I must go down to find out whether or not the accusations that I have heard is true or not!''

   22- Then the two men left and went on towards Sodom, but the Lord remained with ABRAHAM.

      ABRAHAM approached the Lord and said: - ``Are you really going to destroy the innocent with the guilty? If there are 50 innocent people in the city, will you destroy the whole city?'' The Lord said: - ``If I find 50 innocent people in Sodom I will spare the whole city for the sake of them.''

      (Then ABRAHAM haggled with the Lord to reduce the number of the innocent people without the town being destroyed and finally ABRAHAM said to the Lord:)

   32- ``Please don't be angry Lord! I will speak just once more. What if only ten are found?'' He said: - ``I will not destroy it if there be ten.'' After He had finished speaking with ABRAHAM. The Lord went away and ABRAHAM returned home.

 

 

THE ANGELS IN THE HOUSE OF LOT

GENESIS-19

1- When the two angels came to Sodom that evening Lot was sitting at the city gate. As soon as he saw them he went to them and bowed down before them and said: - ``Sirs! I am here to serve you. Please come to my house. You can wash your feet and stay at night....'' But they answered no; we will spend the night here in the city square and by urging them they finally went with him to his house.

   4- Before the guests went to bed the men of Sodom surrounded the house. All the men of the city, both young and old were there! They said: - ``Where are the men who came to stay with you tonight? Bring them to us.'' The men of Sodom wanted to have sex with them!

      Lot said to them: - ``Friends! I beg you don't do such a wicked thing. I have two daughters who are still virgins. Let me bring them out to you and you can do whatever you want with them. But don't do anything to the men!....''

9ِBut they said: - ``Get out of our way you foreigner. Who are you to tell us what to do!?''

      They pushed Lot back and moved on to break the door. But the two men came out and pulled Lot back into the house and shut the door.

   11- Then they struck all the men outside with blindness, so that they could not find the door.

   12- The two men said to Lot: - ``If you have anyone else hereِsons, daughters, sons-in Law, or any other relative living in the cityِget them out of here, because we are going to destroy this place.''

   15- At dawn the angels tried to make Lot hurry.

   17- Then one of the angels said run for your life. Don't look behind and don't stop in the valley. Run to the hills so that you won't be killed.

   23- The sun was rising when Lot reached the small town called Zoar. Suddenly the Lord rained burning sulphur on the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and destroyed them and the whole valley along with all the people there and everything that grew on the land. But Lot's wife looked back and was turned into pillar of salt.

   27- Early next morning Abraham hurried to the place where he stood in the presence of the Lord. He looked at Sodom and Gomorrah, and saw smoke rising from the land, like smoke from a furnace.

 

LOT IS MADE BLIND DRUNK BY HIS DAUGHTERS!

   30- use Lot was afraid to stay in Zoar, he and his two daughters moved up into the hills and lived in a cave.

   31- The elder daughter said to her sister: - ``Our father is getting old, and there are no men in this land to marry us, so that we can have children. Let us make our father drunk, so that we can sleep with him and have children by him.''

   33- That night they gave him wine to drink, and the elder daughter had intercourse with him. But he was so drunk that he didn't know it.

   34- The next day the elder daughter said to her sister: - ``I slept with him last night. Now let us make him drink tonight, and you sleep with him. Then each of us will have a child by our father.'' So, that night, they made him drunk, and the younger daughter had intercourse with him. Again he was so drunk that he didn't know it. In this way both of Lot's daughters became pregnant by their own father!!!

      My Lord! I commend myself to your care of the personified Devils, who forge such heinous lies against your pure, clean and innocent apostles!
