Quran Chptr 4-18 (Pt-4 Stg-1) (L–523)-درسقرآن
False Repentance
Surah‘An-Nisaaa’ (Women -4),
BisMillaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
18.  And the forgiveness is not for those who do ill-deeds until, when death attendeth upon one of them, he saith: Lo! I repent now; nor yet for those who die while they are disbelievers. For such We have prepared a painful doom. 18.  Wa  laysa-tittaw-bata  lil-laziina  ya’-maluunas-sayyi-‘aat.  Hattaaa  ‘izaa  hazara ‘aha-dahumul—mawtu  qaala  ‘inni  tubtul-‘aana  wa  lallaziina  ya-muutuuna  wa  hum  kuffaar.  ‘Ulaaa-‘ika  ‘a’-tadnaa  lahum  ‘azaaban  ‘aliimaa. 

Commentary

It has been described in this verse that the repentance of such people will never be accepted and they will never be forgiven who continue to do ill-deeds and neither they refrain from the sins, nor feel shame on their evil acts, to such degree that when the death attends upon one of them, then they say, “I repent now”. Likewise, the forgi…

17.  Forgiveness is only incumbent on Allah toward those who do evil in ignorance (and) then turn quickly (in repentance) to Allah; these are they toward whom Allah relenteth. And Allah is ever Knower, Wise. 17.  ‘Innamat-tawbatu  ‘alal-laahi  lillaziina ya’-maluunas-suuu-‘a  bi-jahaalatin  summa  yatuubuuna  min-  qariibin-  fa-‘ulaaa-‘ika  yatuu-bullaahu  ‘alayhim.  Wa  kaanallaahu  ‘Aliiman  Hakiimaa.
Lesson
Tawbah–literal meanings of this word are, “to come back, to return, coming back again towards that place, which was left”. Whenever any person offends, he falls back from the attendance of Allah Almighty. He should return towards Allah Almighty. In this condition, he should accept his mistake and promise honestly that he would not repeat such mistake in future, and he should stand firm upon it. It is call…

BisMillaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
16.  And as for the two of you who are guilty thereof, punish them both. But if they repent and improve, then let them be. Lo!

Lesson

‘Allazaani–(the two men of you), in the earlier verse there was commandment regarding punishment for the women who are guilty of lewdness and sinfulness. In this verse, the punishment of guilty men of sodomy has been described. The word ’Allazaani signifies towards the male. The commentators of Holy Qur’an took its meaning as those two men who are culprits of homosexuality or those men who commit lewdness with any woman unlawfully.

A commandment from Allah. And Allah is Knower, Indulgent. 12c.  Fa-‘in  kaanuuu  ‘ak-sara  min  zaalika  fahum  shura-kaaa-‘u  fissulusi  mim- ba’-di  Wasiyyatiny-yuu-saa  bihaaa ‘aw  daynin,  gayra  muzaaarr.  Wa-siyyatam-minal-laah,  wAllaahu  ‘Aliimun  Ha-liim.

However, debt will be returned and the bequeathed legacy will be made up first, provided that the other persons are not harmed due to the bequest. There are t…
