Tafseer of Surah Al-Noor

Life Principles:

  • Do not gossip & back bite. Staying quiet when someone gossips is amounting to joining hands with the evil do’ers.
  • Adultery /physical relationship between a man & a woman without marriage is totally forbidden & is the biggest sin after disbelief in One true God.
  • Grave punishment is for unlawful love affairs so that they become an example for all to behave. Also those who are punished may not be accountable for this sin in the hereafter.
  • Anyone putting blame & falsely accusing & defaming a woman should be given the same grave punishment.
