Quran Chapter 2- 203b (Pt-2, Stg-1) (L-257) - درس قرآن

Actual piety is God-fearing

Surah ‘Al-Baqarah (The Cow) – Chapter – 2)

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim. 
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)


(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)

203b.  فَمَن تَعَجَّلَ فِى يَوْمَيْنِ فَلَآ إِثْمَ عَلَيْهِ وَمَن تَأَخَّرَ فَلَآ إِثْمَ عَلَيْهِ ۚ لِمَنِ ٱتَّقَىٰ ۗ وَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَٱعْلَمُوٓا۟ أَنَّكُمْ إِلَيْهِ تُحْشَرُونَ

203b.  Then whoso hasteneth (his departure) by two days, it is no sin for him, and whoso delayeth, it is no sin for him; that is for him who wardeth off (evil). And be careful of your duty to Allah, and know that unto him ye will be gathered.
203b.  Faman-  ta-‘ajjala  fii yawmayni  falaaa  ‘isma  ‘alayh.  Wa  man-  ta-‘akh-khara  falaaa  ‘isma  ‘alayhi,  li-manittaqaa.  Watta-qullaaha  wa’-lamuuu  ‘annakum  ‘ilayhi  tuh-sharuun.


It was stated in the previous lesson that there are three special days of worship, which are called ‘Ayyaa-mi tash-riiq, that is to say; the 10th, 11th and 12th of Zul-Hijjah. But if any individual stays after 12th of Zul-Hijjah also and worships God Almighty, then it is no sin for him. And if any person sets on to Makkah after staying only two days, then it is no sin for him too.
The object of telling by means of this verse is that the actual piety (fear of God Almighty) is, to abstain from the things which are forbidden by Allah Almighty, remain at distance from unlawful things, not to seek any pretence and excuse in His obedience, to keep up making intention for His pleasure, to act upon His Orders and induce others, to keep the Day of Resurrection in view, to believe the life after death and to arrange for it.

Some irregularity may occur due to certain compulsions in execution of lawful commands. But these compulsions will be accepted only of that individual, who is punctual of honesty, chastity and abstinence. He doesn’t follow against the commands of Allah Almighty violently and being rebellious. It is clear that the person like this; will never seek any pretence or excuse in obeying His Commands. The real thing which is required to be produced in the human being is piety. In its presence, if anybody falls in some littleness due to compulsion or poorness, then it can be forgiven.

The Holy Qur’an preaches for God-fearing along with nearly every command. So, it has much importance in the life of the mankind. The aim from the Commands of Allah Almighty is to grow cleanliness, purity and excellence in the human life. But if in the presence of these specialties, any individual is unable to obey the Orders then there is no sin for him.
