Aisha (r) in shia commentary of Quran

20/12/2009 01:23

[024:011]  Those who brought forward the lie are a body among yourselves: think it not to be an evil to you; On the contrary it is good for you: to every man among them (will come the punishment) of the sin that he earned, and to him who took on himself the lead among them, will be a penalty grievous.


[024:012]  Why did not the believers - men and women - when ye heard of the affair,- put the best construction on it in their own minds and say, "This (charge) is an obvious lie"?


[024:013]  Why did they not bring four witnesses to prove it? When they have not brought the witnesses, such men, in the sight of God, (stand forth) themselves as liars!


[024:014]  Were it not for the grace and mercy of God on you, in this world and the Hereafter, a grievous penalty would have seized you in that ye rushed glibly into this affair.


[024:015]  Behold, ye received it on your tongues, and said out of your mouths things of which ye had no knowledge; and ye thought it to be a light matter, while it was most serious in the sight of God.


[024:016]  And why did ye not, when ye heard it, say? - "It is not right of us to speak of this: Glory to God! this is a most serious slander!"


[024:017]  God doth admonish you, that ye may never repeat such (conduct), if ye are (true) Believers.


[024:018]  And God makes the Signs plain to you: for God is full of knowledge and wisdom.


[024:019]  Those who love (to see) scandal published broadcast among the Believers, will have a grievous Penalty in this life and in the Hereafter: God knows, and ye know not.


[024:020]  Were it not for the grace and mercy of God on you, and that God is full of kindness and mercy, (ye would be ruined indeed).


[024:021]  O ye who believe! follow not Satan's footsteps: if any will follow the footsteps of Satan, he will (but) command what is shameful and wrong: and were it not for the grace and mercy of God on you, not one of you would ever have been pure: but God doth purify whom He pleases: and God is One Who hears and knows (all things).


[024:022]  Let not those among you who are endued with grace and amplitude of means resolve by oath against helping their kinsmen, those in want, and those who have left their homes in God's cause: let them forgive and overlook, do you not wish that God should forgive you? For God is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.


[024:023]  Those who slander chaste women, indiscreet but believing, are cursed in this life and in the Hereafter: for them is a grievous Penalty,-


[024:024]  On the Day when their tongues, their hands, and their feet will bear witness against them as to their actions.


[024:025]  On that Day God will pay them back (all) their just dues, and they will realise that God is the (very) Truth, that makes all things manifest.


[024:026]  Women impure are for men impure, and men impure for women impure and women of purity are for men of purity, and men of purity are for women of purity: these are not affected by what people say: for them there is forgiveness, and a provision honourable.
