وَنَجَّيۡنَٰهُ وَلُوطًا إِلَى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ ٱلَّتِى بَٰرَكۡنَا فِيهَا لِلۡعَٰلَمِينَ
But We delivered him and (his nephew) Lut (and directed them) to the land which We have blessed for the nations.<br/>
And We delivered him, as well as Lot - son of his [Abraham's] brother Haaraan - from Iraq, [and brought them] to the land which We have blessed for all peoples, [blessed it] with an abundance of rivers and trees, and this is Syria. Abraham settled in Palestine, and Lot in the Sinful City (al-mu'tafika, cf. Q. 53:53); and between the two is [the distance of] a day's journey.
