Praise be to Allah the Most Gracious Most Merciful:

Prophet Lot, in the Koran Vs. in the Bible

In the Holy Koran, 4:23 "" Prohibited to you (For marriage) are:- Your mothers, daughters, sisters; father's sisters, Mother's sisters; brother's daughters, sister's daughters; foster-mothers (Who gave you suck), foster-sisters; your wives' mothers; your step-daughters under your guardianship, born of your wives to whom ye have gone in,- no prohibition if ye have not gone in;- (Those who have been) wives of your sons proceeding from your loins; and two sisters in wedlock at one and the same time, except for what is past; for God is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful; ""

Also in the Holy Koran, 24:3 "" Let no man guilty of adultery or fornication marry and but a woman similarly guilty, or an Unbeliever: nor let any but such a man or an Unbeliever marry such a woman: to the Believers such a thing is forbidden. ""

While in the Bible, Genesis 19: 30-38 "" Now Lot went up out of Zo'ar, and dwelt in the hills with his two daughters, for he was afraid to dwell in Zo'ar; so he dwelt in a cave with his two daughters. And the first-born said to the younger, "Our father is old, and there is not a man on earth to come in to us after the manner of all the earth. Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve offspring through our father." So they made their father drink wine that night; and the first-born went in, and lay with her father; he did not know when she lay down or when she arose. And on the next day, the first-born said to the younger, "Behold, I lay last night with my father; let us make him drink wine tonight also; then you go in and lie with him, that we may preserve offspring through our father." So they made their father drink wine that night also; and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he did not know when she lay down or when she arose. Thus both the daughters of Lot were with child by their father. The first-born bore a son, and called his name Moab; he is the father of the Moabites to this day. The younger also bore a son, and called his name Ben-ammi; he is the father of the Ammonites to this time. ""

Lot was a prophet; and all prophets were a special select of God to be his messengers to the people. He equipped them with wisdom, knowledge, chastity, and piety so as to be the best examples for their folks to follow. In view of these facts about the prophets, is it reasonable for Lot, who had spent all his time in Sodom and Gomorra preaching chastity and morality, to commit such a crime-adultery-which is called INCEST with his daughters? Is it reasonable for Lot to drink an intoxicating liquor and become unconscious to a point which made him unaware of his evil act with his daughters? This episode of evil (an evil deed) by Lot is a part of Lot's biography found in Genesis 19:30-38 in the Holy Scriptures, which is the revealed word of God If it is true, then all people who do likewise, i.e. practice Incest in our present time should be absolved and proclaimed "not guilty" at the Court of Justice, because such a sexual abuse is permitted by God or, at least concurred by HIM in his Holy Bible!!

Use your common sense and judge for yourself whether this story about Lot is a genuine word of God, or it is a mere human Lie just inserted into this portion of the Holy Scriptures for human selfish but ignominious purposes. Is it not a kind of humiliation to Lot and his daughters? Think about it, and give your Judgment when you contrast such an abomination with the chaste doctrine of the Koran in this respect (Sexual Abuse) Read carefully the above mentioned Koranic verses.

We Muslims, never bear any grudge or hatred against any of the former Divine Messages; on the contrary, we highly respect and sanctify them, because they are, like our Holy Koran, delivered from the same fountain head ( OUR CREATOR), but we deny and reject any "interpolation" and "Distortion" to be inserted into the HOLY BIBLE as a genuine doctrine of God!! Does God prescribe (order) Immorality? Use your common sense and judge for yourself.
