Trying to amend oneself
Suratun-Nahl – (The Bee) – 16
‘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)
وَعَلَى ٱلَّذِينَ هَادُوا۟ حَرَّمْنَا مَا قَصَصْنَا عَلَيْكَ مِن قَبْلُ وَمَاظَلَمْنَٰهُمْ وَلَٰكِن كَانُوٓا۟ أَنفُسَهُمْ يَظْلِمُونَ 118
ثُمَّ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ لِلَّذِينَ عَمِلُوا۟ ٱلسُّوٓءَ بِجَهَٰلَةٍ ثُمَّ تَابُوا۟ مِنۢ بَعْدِ ذَٰلِكَ وَأَصْلَحُوٓا۟ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ مِنۢ بَعْدِهَالَغَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ 119
|118. And unto those who are Jews We have forbidden that which We have already related unto thee. And We wronged them not, but they were wont to wrong themselves.
119. Then lo! Thy Lord – for those who do evil in ignorance and afterward repent and amend – lo! (for them) thy Lord is afterward indeed Forgiving, Merciful.
|118. Wa ‘alallaziina haaduu harramNaa maa qasasNaa ‘alay-ka min qabl. Wa maa zalam-Naahum wa laakin kaanuuu ‘anfu-sahum yazlimuun.
119. Summa ‘inna Rabbaka lillaziina ‘amilus-suuu-‘a bi-jahaa-latin summa taabuu mim- ba’-di zaalika wa ‘aslahuuu, ‘inna Rabbaka mim- ba’-dihaa la-Gafuurur-Rahiim. (Section 15)
It is commanded that even the Jews did not act upon the commandments of Allah Almighty and they did willingly what they wished. Then finally, behold that what happened to them. Due to their stubbornness, We forbade them from some things. O Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him): We already have caused to hear you about those things. Although We were Powerful, even then We did not punish them without grounds. We do not wrong any individual. However if someone is wont to wrong himself, it is his own will.
If any person does evil in ignorance and afterward he repents and intends strongly that he will never commit such evil in future, in addition he tries to amend his condition, then We forgive his error and accept his repentance. If he goes astray hundred times after repenting and then repents again, We accept his repentance even hundreds of times.
