It is useless to cry over spilt milk

Surah ‘Aali ‘Imraan (The Family of Imran - 3), Stage – 1,
Verses – 29 & 30 of 200, Section – 3 of 20, (Part – 3)
BisMIllaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

29.  Say, (O Muhammad): Whether ye hide that which is in your breasts or reveal it, Allah knoweth it. And He knoweth that which is in the heavens and that which is in the earth. And Allah is Able to do all things.

30.  On the Day when every soul will find itself confronted with all that it hath done of good and all that it hath done of evil; (every soul) will long that there might be a mighty space of distance between it and that (evil). And Allah biddeth you beware of Him. And Allah is Full of pity for (His) bondmen.           
29.  Qul  ‘in-tukhfuu  maa  fii  suduurikum  ‘aw  tubduuhu  ya’-lam-hUllaah.  Wa  ya’-lamu  maa  fis-samaawaati  wa maa  fil-‘arz.  WAllaahu  ‘alaa  kulli  shay-‘in-  Qadiir.

30.  Yawma  tajidu  kullu  nafsim-maa  ‘amilat  min  khayrim-muh-zaranw-wa  maa  ‘amilat  min-  suuu’.  Ta-waddu  law  ‘anna  baynahaa  wa  baynahuuu  ‘ama-dam  ba-‘iidaa.  Wa  yuhazziru-kUmullaahu  Nafsah.  WAllaahu  Ra-‘uufum  bil-‘ibaad.          

Lesson
       
It has been described in these verses, “It is possible that an individual may hide that which is in his/her heart, but he/she neither can hide anything as such from God Almighty and nor can cheat Him”. Knowledge of Allah Almighty is much vast than his/her thinking, He Knows everything in the heavens and in the earth. Even that any atom of the universe does not exist out of His Knowledge. On the Day of Resurrection, every goodness and badness of the entire people will be before them. Conduct sheet of the entire life will be handed over to every person. At that time, evil-doers and sinners will long for it, “would that the bad acts should remain away from us in the world”. But, “It is useless to cry over spilt milk”. Allah Almighty warns by means of His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) in these words: “Abstain from the evils and be saved from those deeds which are forbidden. Do not make dear to the Infidels”. It is Kindness of God Almighty that He terrifies us again and again from that horrible Day (the Day of Resurrection) before time, so that we may turn unto goodness; leaving the badness. It is obligatory upon us that we should consider thoughtfully these commands of God Almighty, be saved from wickedness, badness and evils, be inclined towards the good works, adopt the sobriety, fear always Allah Almighty and cause to pass our lives in piety.
