Lesson # 568 From Holy Qur’aan

No Pardon for Those Who Believe, then Disbelieve, then (again) Believe, then Disbelieve

Surah Nisaaa’ (Women) – Chapter – 4

Verses –137 to 139 of 176, Section – 20/24 (Part – 5)

137.  Lo! those who believe, then disbelieve and then (again) believe, then disbelieve, and then increase in disbelief, Allah will never pardon them, nor will He guide them unto a way.


138.  Bear unto the hypocrites the tidings that for them there is a painful doom-


139.  Those who chose disbelievers for their friends instead of believers! Do they look for power at their hands? Lo! All power appertaineth to Allah.              

137.  ‘Innal-laziina  ‘aamanuu  summa  kafaruu  summa  ‘aamanuu  summa  kafaruu  summaz-daaduu  kufral-lam  yaku-nIllaahu  li-yagfira  lahum  wa  laa  li-yahdi-yahum  Sabiilaa. 


138.  Bash-shiril-Munaa-fiquuna  bi-‘anna  lahum  ‘azaaban  ‘aliimaa. 


139.  ‘Allaziina  yattakhi-zuunal-  kaafiriina  ‘aw-liyaaa-‘a  min  duunil  Mu’-miniin.  ‘A-yabta-guuna  ‘inda-humul  ‘izzata  fa-  ‘innal-  ‘izzata  LIllaahi  jamii-‘aa.        



‘Az-daaduu – (increased), zaa-‘id and ziyaadah etc. are also from the same origin, which means – more and more i.e. to increase, to exceed, to surpass.


It was mentioned previously that those people, who are weak in their beliefs or who show themselves believers only verbally, while in fact they are not believers, they should strengthen their beliefs, as though it signifies that their beliefs can be correct only when they will obey the commands of Allaah Almighty and when they will listen to the admonition and preaching, and act upon the advice. Then the belief can be born in to them eventually. Those persons who embrace seemingly only to show that they are believers, there is fear for them that they deny the matters of Islam due to very little pretense. After that they become Muslims again verbally either by saying someone or for their own advantage. Another time, they become Infidels again when situation permits them. In short, they remain wandering, sometime they wander hither and sometime thither. Thus they die a day. It is visible that gradation of infidelity and hypocrisy is spread over such people and they expire in such form.  


Then it has been described, “Cause to hear those persons thoroughly, who believe verbally only (not heartily) i.e. hypocrites and it is the glad tiding for them, because they are not able to hear any sincere glad tiding, that very painful doom is ready for them. Day by day, they incline towards infidels and set aside the Muslims. At last they make the infidels only their friends and leave the Muslims entirely. What is ultimately their wish? Do they hope that their respect will increase by joining the infidels? Remember it that All power appertains to Allaah Almighty. Nobody has power (honor) either for himself or for others. Allaah Almighty bestows power to whom He wills. Therefore, believe in Him, correct your faith and obey His Orders. Remain never upon this trust that someone else can give you respect.
