AL-ANKABOOT


قَالَ إِنَّ فِيهَا لُوطًا ۚ قَالُوا نَحْنُ أَعْلَمُ بِمَنْ فِيهَا ۖ لَنُنَجِّيَنَّهُ وَأَهْلَهُ إِلَّا امْرَأَتَهُ كَانَتْ مِنَ الْغَابِرِينَ ﴿٣٢﴾
٣٢ - ابراہیم نے کہا کہ اس میں تو لوط بھی ہیں۔ وہ کہنے لگے کہ جو لوگ یہاں (رہتے) ہیں ہمیں سب معلوم ہیں۔ ہم اُن کو اور اُن کے گھر والوں کو بچالیں گے بجز اُن کی بیوی کے وہ پیچھے رہنے والوں میں ہوگی .
[29:32] [Abraham] said, "Indeed, within it is Lot." They said, "We are more knowing of who is within it. We will surely save him and his family, except his wife. She is to be of those who remain behind."

وَلَمَّا أَنْ جَاءَتْ رُسُلُنَا لُوطًا سِيءَ بِهِمْ وَضَاقَ بِهِمْ ذَرْعًا وَقَالُوا لَا تَخَفْ وَلَا تَحْزَنْ ۖ إِنَّا مُنَجُّوكَ وَأَهْلَكَ إِلَّا امْرَأَتَكَ كَانَتْ مِنَ الْغَابِرِينَ ﴿٣٣﴾
٣٣ - اور جب ہمارے فرشتے لوط کے پاس آئے تو وہ اُن (کی وجہ) سے ناخوش اور تنگ دل ہوئے۔ فرشتوں نے کہا کچھ خوف نہ کیجئے۔ اور نہ رنج کیجئے ہم آپ کو اور آپ کے گھر والوں کو بچالیں گے مگر آپ کی بیوی کہ پیچھے رہنے والوں میں ہوگی .
[29:33] And when Our messengers came to Lot, he was distressed for them and felt for them great discomfort. They said, "Fear not, nor grieve. Indeed, we will save you and your family, except your wife; she is to be of those who remain behind.
