“‘(Is it not true that) of all the people you alone approach males (for sexual satisfaction), ‘And leave that (abode of love) which your Lord has created for you in your wives. ‘Nay, (the real fact) you are a people who know no limits.’  They said, ‘If you desist not (of admonishing us for sodomy) O Lot!  You shall indeed be one of the banished ones.’  He said, ‘I surely abhor your practice (of going to males), My Lord! Save me and my followers from (the evil consequences) of their deeds.’ So we saved him and his followers, all of them, Except an old woman (-  wife of Lot), who was among those who stayed behind, Then we destroyed the others. And we pelted them with a terrible rain (of stones).  Look!  How terrible was the rain (that descended) upon those who were warned. There is a great sign in this (episode), yet most of them would not be believers. And indeed your Lord, He is the All-Mighty, the Ever Merciful.”’ ― The Holy Qur’an, Chapter 26, Page 412, Noor Foundation International, Inc., Hockesson, Delaware.
