Commentary

 

It is commanded: You would have to say after looking that so much great malicious slander has been coming out from the mouths of some people: O my Lord! Glory be to You! Which groundless matter these people have been expounding, that is very harsh slanderous report. There is no truth in it.

 

Then it is commanded: O Muslims! Listen! Allaah Almighty reproves you with mildness that you should never commit any such error again in future. Having unreasonable doubt concerning any person is against the dignity of the Believers. One should never imagine about mischief from the side of any other. What has happened with you that you have come in the deception of wicked and rebel people, and you have begun to think evil against such people whose morality is a measuring standard for the entire world? The Believers have no concern with such kind of suspicions. Those individuals have been deceived indeed by Satan who think worse against any other.

 

Allaah Almighty describes you recipes of passing the worldly life with peace and safety. You should bear them in mind. If you did not use those formulae properly then you will lose your reputation and you will be disgraced.

 

Allaah Almighty has knowledge concerning everything and knows the reality of all. Your welfare is only in it that you should keep the society chaste from evil deeds according to Commandments of your Lord, even that you should never speak any wrong word.
