THE DEAD SEA & PROPHET LOT

-
Prophet Lut (Lot):

According to Islamic and Biblical traditions, the Dead Sea is the site of the ancient city of Sodom, home of the Prophet Lut (Lot), peace be upon him. The Qur'an describes the people of Sodom as ignorant, wicked, evildoers who rejected God's call to righteousness. The people were murderers, thiefs, and openly practiced immoral sexual behavior. Lut perservered in preaching God's message, but found that even his own wife was one of the disbelievers.

Punishment:

God's severely punished the people of this region for their wickedness. According to the Qur'an, the punishment was to "turn the cities upside down, and rain down on them brimstones hard as baked clay, spread layer on layer, marked from your Lord" (Qur'an 11:82-83). The site of this punishment is now the Dead Sea, standing as a symbol of destruction.
