* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs


{ أَئِنَّكُمْ لَتَأْتُونَ ٱلرِّجَالَ وَتَقْطَعُونَ ٱلسَّبِيلَ وَتَأْتُونَ فِي نَادِيكُمُ ٱلْمُنْكَرَ فَمَا كَانَ جَوَابَ قَوْمِهِ إِلاَّ أَن قَالُواْ ٱئْتِنَا بِعَذَابِ ٱللَّهِ إِن كُنتَ مِنَ ٱلصَّادِقِينَ }

(For come ye not in unto males) do you not have sexual intercourse with men, (and cut ye not the road (for travellers)) and it is also said that this means: you cut off the continuation of progeny by your abominable act, (and commit ye not abomination in your meetings) they used to indulge in ten different kinds of indecency? (But the answer of his folk) the folk of Lot (was only that they said: Bring Allah's doom upon us if thou art a truth-teller) if you are true that we will be punished unless we accept faith!
