Holy Quran, Chapter 11 Verse 80

قَالَ لَوْ أَنَّ لِي بِكُمْ قُوَّةً أَوْ آوِي إِلَى رُكْنٍ شَدِيدٍ

“He (Lut) said, Would that I had strength to resist you or could betake myself to a strong support!”

Regarding the above verse, Imam Sadiq (as) said, “Strength” refers to the Qaem (as) and “strong support” refers to his three hundred and thirteen companions. (Tafseer Ayyashi volume 2 page 156)


Imam Sadiq (as) said, When Lut said to his people, “Would that I had strength to resist you or could betake myself to a strong support!”, he was hoping for no strength other than the strength of the Qaem (as) and for no support other than the power of his (the Qaem’s) companions. Each one of his companions will be given the strength of forty men, and their hearts will be stronger than pieces of iron. (They will be so strong) that if they come across mountains of iron they will eradicate them, and they will not stop (fighting) until Allah is pleased. (Kamaluddin volume 2 page 673)
