Lesson # 881 - “Turn them out of your township”
Lesson # 881 from the Noble Quran
“Turn them out of your township”
Surah ‘A’-RAAF(The Heights) – Chapter – 7)
Stage – 2, Verse – 82a of 206,
Section – 10 of 24 (Part - 8)
In the name ofAllah, the Beneficent, the
And the answer of his people was nearly that
they said (one to another): Turn them out of your township.

becomes accustomed of any ill-mannered act, he does not have any reply to
satisfy the individual, who is going to cause to understand him. Particularly while
the act is highly disgusting and the aim of wrong doer is to tease someone else
necessarily, he can say nothing as answer save an ugly and irrelevant word.
The talk of
that person, who advises the adulterer, is felt so much blushing by the evil
doer, who commits an act, which is inhumanity and contrary to reason, then he
can do nothing except being ashamed and displeased. The best part of his inner
self gets ready to quarrel with himself and reproaches. This part is his irascibility,
which supports the adviser fully. And if the criminal has not choked his senses
entirely so far, he may return towards the straight path with two or three harsh
jerks of advice. But if his conscience has died then the best talk of the

It is clear
from the answer of the nation of Prophet Lot (peace be upon Him) that they had
lost their senses. They determined the external and internal chasteness and
cleanliness as a dangerous vice, which did exist into Prophet Lot (peace be
upon Him) and His believers, and which was a best attribute of human being, whereas,
they gave preference to their impurity and obscene act contrary to the chastity.
It appears that their wisdom had been turned over entirely.
commanded that the nation of Lot (peace be upon Him) had no any definite answer
and began to talk with irrelevant. When no answer is seen by the human being,
he begins to abuse reciprocal and even does not miss beating. Therefore, if
someone is using insulting language or being prepared for beating, then one
should understand that he has been defeated by his opponent in the field of
wisdom, and does not see his freedom in anything save abusive behavior and
quarreling. Brawl and scuffles is hundred percent sign of defeat. The people of
Lot (peace be upon Him) were annoyed from His preaching and said: Turn them out
of your township and from among you.
This kind of
answer was given to Prophet Abraham (peace be upon Him) by His people too. They
had acknowledged all lost in discussion also because they decided that He (peace
be upon Him) should be thrown into the fire.
comes out from it that the individual, who gets ready to punish any exciter of
any matter, for example; beat, exile or imprison, then it should be considered
that the exciter is true and that person, who is going to give him punishment,
has accepted his defeat in debate, otherwise, if he would have anyone argument
or proof of his truth, certainly he would have produced it and admonished to
