Why was Lut’s (Lot's) wife destroyed?

The Details of the Question
Why was Lut’s (Lot's) wife destroyed?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Lut’s wife, Waila, actually did not believe in Lut (pbuh).She said she believed in God but concealed her unbelief inside.

The superior privilege like conjugal relationship between them and being the wife of a prophet did not have any significance in the struggle between belief and unbelief.

Unbelief cuts off all relations. Even the bond of marriage, which is the strongest bond, becomes ineffective. That is to say, everybody in this world is subjected to the exam individually. As a matter of fact, Noah's wife, Wahila, betrayed Noah (pbuh), although she lived in a prophet's home, she remained as an unbeliever and died so.

In fact, both were in a great blessing that could get happiness of this world and hereafter. They became  the wives of Allah’s two dear prophets. However, this felicity slipped through their fingers with their betrayal.
