Aya 78
وَجاءَهُ قَومُهُ يُهرَعونَ إِلَيهِ وَمِن قَبلُ كانوا يَعمَلونَ السَّيِّئَاتِ ۚ قالَ يا قَومِ هٰؤُلاءِ بَناتي هُنَّ أَطهَرُ لَكُم ۖ فَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَلا تُخزونِ في ضَيفي ۖ أَلَيسَ مِنكُم رَجُلٌ رَشيدٌ


His people went to him rushing and intending to precipitate the indecent and immoral act which they had long been practicing before. Lut, having been rushed in a sea of misery, said to them: "These are my daughters, if you wish to join them in wedlock! This will be virtuous and you will be acting with moral righteousness and conformity with inherent, natural, moral and religious laws." "Fear Allah" he said, "and shame me not before my noble guests; is there no one among you characterized by good sense and prudence!"
