Quran 15 Verse 61 Explanation
For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Al-Hijr ayat 61, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.
(15:61) So when the envoys came to the household of Lot,
35. Please compare this with (Surah Al-Aaraf, Ayats 80-84) and (Surah Houd, Ayats 77-83).
61. Then when the messengers (the angels) came to the family of Lut 62. He (Lut) said: “Verily, you are people unknown to me.” 63. They said: “Nay, we have come to you with that (torment) which they have been doubting.” 64. “And we have brought you the truth and certainly we tell the truth.”
Allah tells us about when the angels came to Lut in the form of young men with handsome faces. When they entered his home, he said:
(“Verily, you are people unknown to me.” They said: “Nay, we have come to you with that (torment) which they have been doubting.”) meaning that they were bringing the punishment and destruction that the people doubted they would ever suffer from.
(And we have brought you the truth) is like the Ayah,
(We do not send the angels down except with the truth) ﴿15:8﴾ and
(and certainly, we tell the truth.) They said this in affirmation of the news that they brought him, that he would be saved and his people would be destroyed.
