( Holy Quran, Chapter:26, Verses:161-164)
They had no fear of Allah, The Almighty, so they practiced forbidden human ways to please their desires.
[And We sent Loot, when he said to his people, do you commit that indecency which was not committed by any one in the world before you? You rather approach men with lust instead of women, on the contrary you people have crossed the limit. ]

[When the messengers (Angels) came to the house of Loot, he said, verily you are a group of strangers! They said ‘No’ we have brought to you that which they were doubting in. And we have brought to you the true command and we are surely truthful.]
(Holy Quran, Chapter:15, Verses:61-64)
On the commandment of Allah, The Almighty those angels advised the Prophet Loot (Peace be upon him) to leave this place with his family and faithful followers.
[Therefore go away with your family while a portion of the night is left and you follow them. Do not let anyone look back and go straight to where you are commanded to go.]
