Surah as-Saffat (Those Lined Up) 37 : 133
1. Lessons/Guidance/Reflections/Gems[ edit ]
Then we take a brief look at Lot, whose story occurs after Abraham’s story in other sūrahs. The depiction here is similar to that given of Noah. It refers to the fact that Lot was God’s messenger, and that he was saved with his family, except his wife, while the hardened unbelievers were destroyed. This is followed by a reminder to the Arabs who used to pass by the area where Lot’s people lived without heeding the lesson their ruins told, and without fearing that they would be destroyed in similar fashion.
