Indeed Our messengers came to Abraham, bearing glad tidings. They greeted him with 'peace', and Abraham answered back to them 'peace', and hurriedly brought to them a roasted calf. (69) But when he saw their hands not reaching for it, he distrusted them and felt from them apprehension. They said, "Fear not. We have been sent to the people of Lot." (70) And his wife, standing [nearby,] laughed [with happiness]; whereupon We gave her the glad tiding of [the birth of] Isaac and after Isaac, of [his son] Jacob. (71) She said: Oh for me shall bring forth when I am old, and this my husband is advanced in years! Verily a marvellous thing is this! (72) They said: "Do you wonder at the Decree of Allah? The Mercy of Allah and His Blessings be on you, O the family [of Ibrahim (Abraham)]. Surely, He (Allah) is All-Praiseworthy, All-Glorious." (73) And when the wonderment departed from Abraham and the glad tidings reached him, he pleaded with Us for the nation of Lot; (74) For Abraham was, without doubt, forbearing (of faults), compassionate, and given to look to Allah. (75) O Ibrahim! leave off this, surely the decree of your Lord has come to pass, and surely there must come to them a chastisement that cannot be averted. (76) AND WHEN Our messengers came unto Lot, he was sorely grieved on their account, seeing that it was beyond his power to shield them; and he exclaimed: "This is a woeful day!" (77) His nation came running towards him; whilst they were doing evil deeds. 'My nation' he said: 'here are my daughters (take them in marriage), they are cleaner for you. Fear Allah and do not humiliate me by my guests. Is there not one man amongst you of right mind' (78) They said: "You know we have no need for your daughters, and know well what we want." (79) He said: Would that I had strength to resist you or had some strong support (among you)! (80) They said: O Lut! verily we are messengers of thy Lord; they shall by no means reach thee: go forth thou with thy household in a part of the night, and let none of you look back, save thy wife; verily that which befalleth them shall befall her; verily their appointment is for the morning; is not morning nigh? (81) Then when Our decree came to pass, We turned the upside thereof downward, and We rained thereon stones of baked clay, piled up. (82) Marked from before thy Lord. Nor are they from the wrong-doers far away. (83)
