Rise up, and go about
The Pole of our salvation,
As winds the pilgrim rout
By Mecca’s holy station.

Why art thou slumber bound,
Like clay the earth caressing?
In movement shall be found
The key to every blessing.



























When Our Messengers came to Abraham with the good news, they said: “We are indeed going to destroy the people of this township: for truly they are (addicted to) crime and have also belied their Messenger Lut.”
He said: “But there is Lut there.” They said: “Well do we know who is there: we will certainly save him and his following, except his wife: she is of those who lag behind!” (Surah Ankabut—31-32)
Translated by Abdullah Yusuf Ali
Hazrat Lut alaihessalam
Dear Children,
We will now tell you the story of another Prophet, Hazrat Lut alaihessalam. Hazrat Lut was nephew of Hazrat Ibrahim alaihessalam.  He was a god fearing pious man. Almighty Allah nominating him as prophet asked him to go to Sodom and Amora to guide people to right path.  Obeying the ordersHazrat Lut went to Sodom first.
Condition of people of Sodom
Dear Children, the people of Sodom were disbelievers and indulged in many wrongdoings and immoral habits like looting, killing, robbing travelers and much more shameful and disgraceful acts.
Hazrat Lut alaihessalam asked them to fear Allah, and obey Him. He said; “I am a trustworthy Messenger to you. So fear Allah, keep your duty to Him, and obey. Leave all of your bad behavior and indecency and crimes.  I ask of you no reward for it. My reward is only from Allah.” 
The people were so arrogant that they refused to listen to him. They threatened to drive him out of the city if he kept on preaching.
Hazrat Ibrahim alaihessalam’s hospitality
Dear Children,
When Hazrat Lut alaihessalam was preaching the people of Sodom to believe in oneness of Allah and worship him only, Hazrat Ibrahim alaihessalam was alive. He lived with his wife Bibi Sara, in Alkhalil, the city of Palestine. 
Where as Bibi Hajira lived with her son Hazrat Isma’il alaihessalam in Makkah.  
Hazrat Ibrahim alaihessalam blessed with many qualities. One of them was his hospitality. He could not sleep unless he served and fed any guest. If ever no guest visited him, he used to search for one to serve and please Allah.
Angel Guests,
It happened once that no guests came for about a fortnight. Hazrat Ibrahim alaihessalamcould not find one either. Therefore, he was very concerned.
One day there was a knock on his door. Hazrat Ibrahim alaihessalam was excited to see three men. He brought them in and after making them comfortable; he started to make feast for them.  He placed before them a lavish meal of roasted calf. They did not eat. Hazrat Ibrahim was upset so the guests told him that they were angels not human beings. Angels do not eat or drink.
They had come to give good news to his wife, Sara that she will give birth to a baby boy. The boy’s name will be, Ishaq. 
 Sarah could hardly believe the news. As a “barren old woman” the news seemed to her too good to be true.
Allah is Supreme!
The angels said: “Dost thou wonder at Allah’s decree? The grace of Allah and His blessings on you, O ye people of the house!   He is indeed, worthy of all praise full of all glory!” (HUD 11: 69-73)
Hazrat Ibrahim said, “I believe that Allah is supreme and nothing is impossible for Him, but as I know you have been sent by Allah, to destroy Sodomities because they are criminal and indulged in all sorts of evil acts. Would you kill my nephew Lut too? He is a pious man and a prophet too.” The angels assured Hazrat Ibrahim that Hazrat Lut alaihessalam and his other followers and family members will not harm except for his wife. She is not a good woman and neither a loyal wife.
Vacate this place
The angels told Lut alaihessalam to leave that place before dawn.
Sodom’s destruction was next day. 
Before dawn
, Lut alaihessalam’s family escaped. The Angels warned them “Don’t turn back”, not even for noises of any kind. Lut alaihessalam’s evil wife lagged behind.
By morning, Angels had lifted and smashed the cities upside down, the Sodomities screamed in fear as fire burnt up their evil towns.
ALLAH sent a rain of fiery brimstones, falling in scorching layers, each stone marked a Sodomite for death, all caught unawares. Hazrat Lut alaihessalam’s wife was a disbeliever, she didn’t listen and turned around, saying, “Oh my people!” and then a brimstone hit her covering her into the ground.
 Location of Sodom
Sodom and its cities were punished, seen with no real worth, now lying under the salty Dead Sea (lifeless lake, so full of salt that people can float in it between Jordan and Israel), the lowest place on earth.
 Mentioned in holy Quran in Surah HUD AYAT ANY 80-82
