Stories you are not aware of

This is what we are told about LOT and his family

They (Angels) said: "O Lout (Lot)! Verily, we are the Messengers from your Lord! They shall not reach you {his people to kill him)! So travel with your family in part of the night, and let not any of you look back, except your wife (will remain behind), verily, the punishment which will afflict her is that afflicted them. Indeed, morning is their appointed time. Is not the morning near?" (81)

So when Our Commandment came, We turned (the towns of Sodom in Palestine) upside down, and rained on them stones of baked clay, piled up; (82) [quran 11: (81-82)]

And (remember) Lout (Lot), when he said to his people: "Do you commit the worst sin such as none preceding you has committed in the worlds (mankind and jinns)? (80) "Verily, you practise your lusts on men instead of women. Nay, but you are a people transgressing beyond bounds (by committing great sins)." (81) And the answer of his people was only that they said: "Drive them out of your town, these are indeed men who want to be pure (from sins)!" (82) Then We saved him and his family, except his wife; she was of those who remained behind (in the torment). (83) And We rained down on them a rain (of stones). Then see how was the end of the criminals (polytheists, sinners, etc.). (84) [quran 7: (80-84)]

also about Zechariah and Mary

So her (Mary) Lord accepted her with goodly acceptance. He made her grow in a good manner and put her under the care of Zechariah. Every time he entered the niche (while she was there) to her, he found her supplied with substance. He said: "O Mary from where have you got this?" She said: "This is from Allah." Verily, Allah provides substance to who ever He wills, without limit." (37) At that time Zechariah invoked (called) his Lord saying: "O my Lord! Grant me from You, a good offspring. you are indeed the All-Hearer of invocation". (38) Then the angels called him, while he was standing in prayer in the mihrab (niche - Prayer place or a private room), (saying): "God gives you glad tidings of Yahya (John) confirming (believing in) the word from allah and a noble and off wordly desires (avoid contacts with women) and a prophet from among the righteous (39) [qur-an 03:37]
