وَلُوطًا إِذْ قَالَ لِقَوْمِهِ إِنَّكُمْ لَتَأْتُونَ الْفَاحِشَةَ مَا سَبَقَكُمْ بِهَا مِنْ أَحَدٍ مِنَ الْعَالَمِينَ ﴿٢٨﴾
٢٨ - اور لوط (کو یاد کرو) جب اُنہوں نے اپنی قوم سے کہا کہ تم (عجب) بےحیائی کے مرتکب ہوتے ہو۔ تم سے پہلے اہل عالم میں سے کسی نے ایسا کام نہیں کیا .
[29:28] And [mention] Lot, when he said to his people, "Indeed, you commit such immorality as no one has preceded you with from among the worlds.

أَئِنَّكُمْ لَتَأْتُونَ الرِّجَالَ وَتَقْطَعُونَ السَّبِيلَ وَتَأْتُونَ فِي نَادِيكُمُ الْمُنْكَرَ ۖ فَمَا كَانَ جَوَابَ قَوْمِهِ إِلَّا أَنْ قَالُوا ائْتِنَا بِعَذَابِ اللَّهِ إِنْ كُنْتَ مِنَ الصَّادِقِينَ ﴿٢٩﴾
٢٩ - تم کیوں (لذت کے ارادے سے) لونڈوں کی طرف مائل ہوتے اور (مسافروں کی) رہزنی کرتے ہو اور اپنی مجلسوں میں ناپسندیدہ کام کرتے ہو۔ تو اُن کی قوم کے لوگ جواب میں بولے تو یہ بولے کہ اگر تم سچے ہو تو ہم پر عذاب لے آؤ .
[29:29] Indeed, you approach men and obstruct the road and commit in your meetings [every] evil." And the answer of his people was not but they said, "Bring us the punishment of Allah, if you should be of the truthful."
