Dwellings of People of Lot


Assalam u alikum !
As we know that Quran is Knowledge for all people. In Quran, it is mentioned several times the people of Lut and their ruined dwellings.
I want to know where these dwellings are. ??
As mentioned in Quran that you people walk in those dwellings in the morning and at night.
Chapter 37
As – Saffat
And indeed, Lut was among the messengers. (133) [So mention] when We saved him and his family, all, (134) Except his wife among those who remained [with the evildoers]. (135) Then We destroyed the others.(136) And indeed, you pass by them in the morning (137) And at night. Then will you not use reason? (138)

Where these destroyed houses are. ??


Wa Alaikum al-salam Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh

Thank you for your question

Based on the Quran, the people of Lut were in the land of “motafiqa’at”; according to some, it is in current Jordan (close to the dead sea) which was at the path of trade caravans from Mecca to Shaam.
