Tafsir von Maududi für die Ayaat 54 bis 58
And We sent Lot. ( 67 ) Remember thetime when he said to his people, "Do you commit indecency while you see it? ( 68 ) Do you leave women and seek men for the gratification of your sexual desire? The fact is that you are a people steeped in ignorance. " ( 69 ) But the only reply his people gave was to say, "Expel the family of Lot from your habitation: they pose to be very pious." At last We saved him and his family except his wife about whom We had decreed that she would linger behind, ( 70 ) and rained on then a rain, an extremely evil rain for the people who had been warned.
Desc No: 68 This can have several meanings and probably all are implied: (1) `That you are not unaware of this act's being wicked, but you commit it knowing it to be so"; (2) "You are also not unaware that the man has not been created for the man's sex satisfaction but the woman, and the distinction between them (man and woman) is not such as you cannot perceive, yet with open eyes you commit this abominable act." (3) "You indulge in this indecency publicly when there are people watching you", as stated in Surah `Ankbut: 29, thus: " ..... and you indulge in indecencies in your assemblies."
Desc No: 69 The word jahalat here has been used in the sense of folly and stupidity. But even if it is taken in the sense of ignorance and lack of knowledge, it will mean: "You do not know the evil consequences of your acts. You only know that you are deriving sensual pleasure, but you do not know what severe punishment awaits you for this criminal and heinous pleasure-seeking. The scourge of Allah is ready to strike you but you are engaged in a senseless, filthy game with impunity. "
Desc No: 70 That is, "The Prophet Lot had already been instructed not to take the woman along because she had to be destroyed along with her people."
