Quran Chapter 2- 222b (Pt-2, Stg-1) (L-288) - درس قرآن

Purification of the woman

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.)

وَيَسْـَٔلُونَكَعَنِ ٱلْمَحِيضِ قُلْ هُوَ أَذًى فَٱعْتَزِلُوا۟ ٱلنِّسَآءَ فِى ٱلْمَحِيضِ وَلَا تَقْرَبُوهُنَّ حَتَّىٰ يَطْهُرْنَ فَإِذَا تَطَهَّرْنَ فَأْتُوهُنَّ مِنْ حَيْثُ أَمَرَكُمُ ٱللَّهُ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يُحِبُّٱلتَّوَّٰبِينَ وَيُحِبُّ ٱلْمُتَطَهِّرِينَ 222
222b.  And go not in unto them till they are cleansed. And when they have purified themselves, then go in unto them as Allah hath enjoined upon you. Truly Allah loveth those who turn unto Him, and loveth those who have a care for cleanness.
222b.  Wa  laa taqrabuu-hunna  hatta  yat-hurn.  Fa-‘izaa  ta-tahharna  fa’-tuu-hunna  min  hay-su  ‘amara-kumUllaah.  ‘InnAllaaha  yuhibbut-Tawwaa-biina  wa  yuhibbul-Muta-tahhiriin.

‘At-Tawwaa-biina – (who turn unto Him), it aims all those people who, whenever err by chance, afterward; they repent of their sins solemnly and become much ashamed before God Almighty.

‘Al-Muta-tahhiriin – (who have a care for cleanness), it signifies particularly towards those people who remain away from their wives (ignore the act of intercourse) during their days of menstruation (until they are cleansed).

In the previous lesson, Holy Qur’an described that the menstruation is an illness and nastiness. It has been explained in this verse that whenever this filthy blood stops and the woman cleanses then it is lawful to sleep together (intercourse process is permitted). This lawful act should be performed naturally and with the lawful method. It should not be committed unnaturally.

We have learnt in the previous lessons that Allah Almighty has kept sexual attraction among the male and the female, and with the sensual process, although both persons get enjoyment but this enjoyment is not the last aim. Real aim and consequence of the relationship between husband and wife is acquiring children. Forgetting it, if any individual wants to get enjoyment by any other method; then it will be quite unlawful.

It has been mentioned in the Holy Qur’an that the nation of Prophet Lot (peace be upon him) had fallen in sodomy. The Prophet (peace be upon him) made them to understand but they didn’t agree entirely, and at last, God Almighty ruined them with His wrath and made them example for forthcoming breeds/people. So, everyone should bear in mind that if the human beings will indulge in that sin again, His agony may come again upon them.

In the last of this verse, Holy Qur’an says that Allah Almighty likes those people who turn unto Him, who renounce solemnly, become ashamed due to their wrong and abstain from committing any error/sin in future. So, if any individual has committed this sin in the past, he should repent at once, God Almighty will forgive him. Allah Almighty likes those people who remain cleansed.
