And Isma‘il, al-Yasa‘, Yunus and Lut. All of them We favoured over all beings. (6:86)

And Lut, when he said to his people, ‘Do you commit an obscenity not perpetrated before you by anyone in all the worlds? You come with lust to men instead of women. You are indeed a depraved people.’ The only answer of his people was to say, ‘Expel them from your city! They are people who keep themselves pure!’ So We rescued him and his family–except for his wife. She was one of those who stayed behind. We rained down a rain upon them. See the final fate of the evildoers! (7:80-84)

When he (Ibrahim) saw that their hands were not reaching for it, he suspected them and felt afraid of them. They said, ‘Have no fear! We have been sent to the people of Lut.’ (11:70)

When the feeling of fear left Ibrahim, and the good news reached him, he disputed with Us about the people of Lut. (11:74)

When Our messengers came to Lut, he was distressed for them, and very concerned for them, and said, ‘This is a dreadful day.’ His people came running to him excitedly–they were long used to committing evil acts. He said, ‘My people, here are my daughters. They are purer for you. So have fear of Allah and do not shame me with my guests. Is there not one rightly-guided man among you?’ They said, ‘You know we have no claim on your daughters. You know very well what it is we want.’ He said, ‘If only I had the strength to combat you or could take refuge in some powerful support!’ They said, ‘Lut, we are messengers from your Lord. They will not be able to get at you. Set out with your family–except for your wife–in the middle of the night and none of you should look back. What strikes them will strike her as well. Their promised appointment is the morning. Is the morning not close at hand?’ When Our command came, We turned their cities upside down and rained down on them stones of hard baked clay, piled on top of one another in layers, each one earmarked by your Lord. And they are never far from the wrongdoers. (11:77-83)

(Shu‘ayb said,) ‘My people! Do not let your breach with me provoke you into doing wrong so that the same thing happens to you as happened to the people of Nuh and the people of Hud and the people of Salih; and the people of Lut are not far distant from you.’ (11:89)

(Lut said,) ‘Have fear of Allah and do not dishonour me.’ They said, ‘Did we not forbid you to play host to anyone at all?’ He said, ‘Here are my daughters if you are determined to do something.’ By your life! They were wandering blindly in their drunkenness! So the Great Blast seized hold of them at the break of day. We turned the place completely upside down and rained down on them stones of hard-baked clay. There are certainly Signs in that for the discerning. They were beside a road which still exists. There is certainly a Sign in that for the believers. (15:69-77)

We gave right judgement and knowledge to Lut and rescued him from the city which committed disgusting acts. They were evil people who were deviators. We admitted him into Our mercy. He was one of the righteous. (21:74-75)

He (Lut) said, ‘These are my guests so do not put me to shame.’ (15:68)

The people of Lut denied the Messengers, when their brother Lut said to them, ‘Will you not guard against evil? I am a faithful Messenger to you. So have fear of Allah and obey me. I do not ask you for any wage for it. My wage is the responsibility of no one but the Lord of all the worlds. Of all beings, do you lie with males, leaving the wives Allah has created for you? You are a people who have overstepped the limits.’ They said, ‘Lut, if you do not desist you will be expelled.’ He said, ‘I am someone who detests the deed you perpetrate. My Lord, rescue me and my family from what they are doing.’ Therefore We rescued him and all his family–except for an old woman who remained behind. Then We utterly destroyed the rest and made a Rain come pouring down upon them. How evil is the rain of those who are warned! There is certainly a Sign in that, yet most of them are not believers. Truly your Lord is the Almighty, the Most Merciful. (26:160-175)

And when Lut said to his people: ‘Do you approach depravity with open eyes? Do you come with lust to men instead of women? You are a people who are deeply ignorant.’ The only response of his people was to say: ‘Drive the the family of Lut out of your city! They are people who keep themselves pure!’ So We rescued him and his family–except for his wife. We ordained her to be one of those who stayed behind. We rained down a rain upon them. How evil is the rain of those who are warned! Say: ‘Praise be to Allah and peace be upon His servants whom He has chosen.’ Is Allah better, or what you associate with Him? (27:54-59)

He (Ibrahim) said, ‘You have adopted idols apart from Allah as tokens of mutual affection in this world. But then on the Day of Rising you will reject one another and curse one another. The Fire will be your shelter. You will have no helpers.’ And Lut believed in him. He said, ‘I am leaving this place to follow the pleasure of my Lord. He is the Almighty, the All Wise.’ We gave him Ishaq and Ya‘qub and placed Prophethood and the Book among his progeny. We gave him his reward in this world and in the hereafter he will be among the righteous. When Lut said to his people, ‘You are committing an obscenity not perpetrated before you by anyone in all the worlds. Do you lie with men and waylay them on the road and commit depravities within your gatherings?’. The only answer of his people was to say, ‘Bring us Allah’s punishment if you are telling the truth.’ He said, ‘My Lord, help me against the people of corruption!’ When Our messengers came with the good news to Ibrahim, they said, ‘We are going to destroy the people of this city. Truly its inhabitants are wrongdoers.’ He said, ‘Lut is in it.’ They said, ‘We know very well who is in it. We are going to rescue him and his family–except for his wife. She will be one of those who stay behind.’ When Our Messengers came to Lut, he was distressed on their account, feeling incapable of protecting them. They said, ‘Do not fear and do not grieve. We are going to rescue you and your family–except for your wife; she will be one of those who stay behind. We will bring down on the inhabitants of this city a devastating punishment from heaven because of their deviance.’ We have left a Clear Sign of them behind for people who use their intellect. (29:25-35)

And Lut was one of the Messengers. When We rescued him and all his family–except an old woman among those who stayed behind. Then We utterly destroyed the rest. And you pass by them in the daytime and at night. So will you not use your intellect? (37:133-138)

And Thamud and the people of Lut and the Companions of the Thicket. Those too were Confederates. (38:13)

And ‘Ad and Pharaoh and the brothers of Lut. (50:13)

The people of Lut denied the warnings. We unleashed a sudden squall of stones against all of them, except the family of Lut, who We rescued before dawn. It was a blessing direct from Our presence. That is how We recompense those who give thanks. He warned them of Our onslaught but they dismissed the warnings. They even wanted to seduce his guests! So We put out their eyes: ‘Taste My punishment and warnings!’ Early morning brought them enduring punishment: ‘Taste My punishment and warnings!’ (54:33-39)
