Prophet Lut


“And (We sent) Lut, when he said to his people, “Why do you commit such indecent acts that
have never been committed before by anyone in any of the worlds?…” 7:80

Prophet Lut was Prophet Ibraheem’s nephew. They migrated together to Palestine, but later Prophet Lut settled in Sodom in Jordan. The people of Sodom were unsociable and highway robbers who not only stole possessions but also young men for their pleasure. They rejected Prophet Lut’s advice to reform and were subject to Divine punishment which saw the destruction of Sodom.
