وَلُوطاً آتَيْنَاهُ حُكْماً وَعِلْماً وَنَجَّيْنَاهُ مِنَ ٱلْقَرْيَةِ ٱلَّتِي كَانَت تَّعْمَلُ ٱلْخَبَائِثَ إِنَّهُمْ كَانُواْ قَوْمَ سَوْءٍ فَاسِقِينَ
-Al-Anbiyâ’ ( الأنبياء )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

Truly they were a folk of evil [people] (saw’ is the verbal noun of sā’ahu, ‘he harmed him’, the opposite of sarrahu, ‘he delighted him’), immoral.
