Commentary

                                          

Instructions for keeping the society chaste and pure from indecency were given in the previous verses and proper limits of punishment were described. Punishment of those people who traduce the virtuous and believing women was also mentioned. If the husband accuses his wife, but does not bring four witnesses, then form of its decision has been explained. ‘Aayshah {Wife of our Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) and our Mother (may Allaah be pleased with her)} was adjudged as free from the sin and the accusers were rebuked. Precautionary measures against lewd thoughts were described for keeping the domestic affairs chaste. It was discussed that “How the women should live at home?” It was admonished clearly that you should marry those, as soon as possible, who are unmarried. Allaah Almighty commands that you should behave with your slaves and bond-women like common human beings and should not compel them to earn for increasing your wealth by unlawful means, because letting them to earn by fornication is a forbidden act.

 

After that, it is commanded: There is no difficulty in understanding those commandments which have been revealed in the verses of Holy Qur’an. If still any person does not act upon those instructions, then consequence in his favor will be worse. This matter has been manifested by causing to hear the circumstances of ancient people that they were punished due to turning away from the Commandments of Allaah Almighty and being entangled in evil deeds.

 

These entire matters have been explained very clearly in Holy Qur’an. This all is for betterment of the mankind and the aim is to save him from ruin and destruction. There are sufficient admonitions for human beings in these verses.
