وَنَجَّيْنَاهُ وَلُوطاً إِلَى ٱلأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي بَارَكْنَا فِيهَا لِلْعَالَمِينَ
-Al-Anbiyâ’ ( الأنبياء )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

And We delivered him, as well as Lot — son of his [Abraham’s] brother Hārān — 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.
