Quran 29 Verse 35 Explanation
For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Ankabut ayat 35, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.
(29:35) And We have left a vestige of it in that city as a Clear Sign, for a people who use their reason.
59. “A clear sign”: the Dead Sea, which is also called Sea of Lot. The Quran at several places has addressed the disbelievers of Makkah, saying, “A sign of the torment that visited this wicked people on account of their misdeeds still exists on the highway, which you see night and day during your trade journeys to Syria.” (Surah Al-Hijr, Ayat 76); (Surah As-Saffat, Ayat 137). Today it is being admitted with near certainty that the southern end of the Dead Sea came into being as a result of a violent earthquake when the area in which Sodom, the central city of the people of Lot, was located sank underground. In this part there are still signs of some submerged habitations. Exploratory attempts are being made with the modern diving apparatus but the results are still awaited. see (Surah Ash-Shuara, ayat 173) note 114.
60. For the Islamic punishment of sodomy, see (Surah Al-Aaraf, ayat 84) note 68.
