None will be forgiven without accountability
Surah ‘A’-RAAF(The Heights) – Chapter – 7)
Stage – 2, Verse – 169a of 206, Section – 21 of
24 (Part - 9)
In the name ofGod, the Beneficent, the
And a generation hath succeeded them who inherited the
Scriptures; they grasp the goods of this low life (as the price of evildoing)
and say: It will be forgiven us. And if there came to them (again) the offer
of the like, they would accept it (and would sin again).
ba’-dihim khalfunw- warisul-Kitaaba ya’-khuzuuna ‘araza
haazal-‘adnaa wa yaquuluuna
sa-yugfaru lanaa. Wa ‘iny-ya’-tihim ‘arazum-misluhuu ya’-khuzuuh.
Khalafa – (came later,

– (a degenerate, bad or wicked son), if the children of someone rise
unworthy after his death, those children are called khalfun, that is to say; the
children, who has fallen from good qualities of their formers. And if the

commanded that some of the earlier people were righteous but their successors
rose as much unworthy that they made the entire matter disrupt. They possessed Holy
Scripture Torah but made It source of income. If they seemed that a provision could
be gained from anywhere, changed the words of Torah and sometimes they used to
say something else by changing the actual meanings of the verses of Torah. They
began to give a verdict according to the will of those who cherished them with gifts,
presents and rarities, to please them. If anyone prevented them that such way

They used to
say: We are dear children of God. We cannot be punished. When the nature of any
individual becomes like this, then he takes courage to commit evils and
whenever gets any opportunity, earns unlawfully as much as he wishes. Moreover,
he seeks the chances: When will any prey be entangled and when shall I achieve
my own purpose.
this verse, those Muslim scholars should confess and be ashamed of their faults
who don’t care: Whether have they not been going to explain the Divine’s Laws improperly
to please the rich people? Sometimes, the human being commits any such act to
please any patron or guardian which is unlawful according to the Law of Divine.
At that time, he amuses with such matters which are in accordance with the
matters of the Jews, for example; he says: Expedience is in it at the spot that
it should be ignored. The door of repentance has been opened. This sin will be
forgiven also where other sins will be forgiven. Intercession of so and so (any
saint or venerable) will save me.
save us from these kinds of absurd ideas. Sometimes these kinds of thoughts
encourage the humankind to commit a sin. We should take warning from the wicked
behavior of the Children of Israel.
