When their brother Lot said unto them: Will ye not ward off (evil)?
Lo! I am a faithful messenger unto you,
So keep your duty to Allah and obey me.
And I ask of you no wage therefor; my wage is the concern only of the Lord of the Worlds.
What! Of all creatures do ye come unto the males,
And leave the wives your Lord created for you? Nay, but ye are froward folk.
They said: If thou cease not, O Lot, thou wilt soon be of the outcast.
He said: I am in truth of those who hate your conduct.
My Lord! Save me and my household from what they do.
So We saved him and his household, every one,
Save an old woman among those who stayed behind.
Then afterward We destroyed the others.
And We rained on them a rain. And dreadful is the rain of those who have been warned.
Lo! herein is indeed a portent, yet most of them are not believers.
And lo! thy Lord, He is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful.
The dwellers in the wood (of Midian) denied the messengers (of Allah),
When Shu´eyb said unto them: Will ye not ward off (evil)?
And I ask of you no wage for it; my wage is the concern only of the Lord of the Worlds.
