Hebrew (לוֹט) which actually means - "covered; veil".
According to the Bible - Lot was the son of Harran, Abraham's nephew. Except for Sarah, Lot was edinstveinym relative accompany the patriarch Abraham when he moving to Canaan.
Lot or Lut (circa 1900 BC) is a messenger and an Islamic prophet mentioned in the Qur'an. He also appears in the Bible, but the Biblical stories of Lot are not entirely accepted within Islam. Lut lived in Ur and was a nephew of Ibrahim (Abraham). He migrated with Abraham to Canaan in Palestine. He was commissioned as a prophet to the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah.
His story is used as a reference by Muslims to demonstrate Islam's strong disapproval of homosexuality. He was commanded by God to go to the land of Sodom and Gomorrah to preach to his people on monotheism and to stop them from their lustful and violent acts. According to both the Qur'an and the Bible, Lot's messages were ignored by the inhabitants. Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed and his sinful wife also was left behind to be destroyed.
