How this evil began in the tribe of Lot?
Lesson # 880 from the Noble Quran
How this evil began in the tribe of Lot?
Surah ‘A’-RAAF(The Heights) – Chapter – 7)
Stage – 2, Verse – 81 of 206, Section
– 10 of 24 (Part - 8)
In the name ofAllah, the Beneficent, the
(peace be upon Him) made the people of Sodom to understand and at that time He said:
You commit abomination such as no creature ever did before you. The Commentators
felt the need of finding out: How this evil had begun and how the attention of
human being was engaged towards this absurd and bad act?
The tracers of
the human history told them that the land of Sodom and in its surroundings was
a fertile territory. Gardens of fruit were with huge abundance. There was no
deficiency of the commodities of food and the people lived in very easy
circumstances. They used to fulfill their every desire freely and
thoughtlessly. It is easy to incline the prosperous and thoughtless people towards
the sexual gratification.
remains in search of occasions every time to `ruin the humankind, got very good
opportunity to seduce. He drew attention of the people towards the means of boiling
up carnal appetite by turning their thoughts from good works and hobbies. And they
began to remain engaged in the matters of getting excited their hot. Although,
such thought could not be produced in their hearts regarding unnaturally destruction of the essence of a man. It is said that the Devil misled them by
means of an unusual trick and arranged to remove the human race from its
was that the man got ready to destroy himself in such way. His sense did not
work. Neither he could think that it was a vicious and obscene act and nor
there was any chance to draw his attention towards its fatal results. Everyone knows
that bad work spreads like fire and dust storm. And whosoever comes in their
striking, they leave it burnt or throw on the ground with violence. The people
of Sodom came in the trick of Satan and arranged for themselves to be ruined. We
should learn many useful lessons from it:
·Such kind of obscene act cannot be thought by the mankind at
its own, until the Devil misguides him by means of any new way. Therefore, we
should continue to try to be saved from our ancient enemy.
·Trick of the Devil operates upon the young, thoughtless and bellyful
people immediately, so the young should remain engaged every time in useful
hard works. They should bear in mind always that He (Allah Almighty) is looking
them every time Who created them in this world and Who has bestowed these
entire favors, and at the end, He will take an account from everyone that:
Whether Our given powers and things for pleasure and enjoyment have been used properly
or otherwise? He (God Almighty) will punish the evil doers.
·Excess and greed should not be in eating. One should remain
away from lustful thoughts, hobbies, games and disgusting talks. One should practise;
how to live during hunger. Every desire rises when it is raised up, and sets,
when it is suppressed. Absurd words, abusive language, obscene songs, dancing,
twisting and modulation, erotic novels and fables, and unreasonable eating and
drinking are the things, which stir up the desire, so, one should be saved from
them, otherwise, one will be ill-treated at the time of death and after death.
·The human being cannot be satisfied in the world by fulfilling
his desires badly. Passion ends in minutes and seconds, but after that, its bad
results pursue closely in spite of everything, and become cause of torment
always, without intention of true penitence and abstinence, and forthcoming
pedigrees suffer the trouble due to their bad results.
