Name of Chapter An-Najm , 32 verses Number 32

الَّذينَ يَجْتَنِبُونَ كَبائِرَ اْلاِثْمِ وَالْفَواحِشَ اِلّا اللَّمَمَ اِنَّ رَبَّكَ واسِعُ الْمَغْفِرَةِ هُوَ اَعْلَمُ بِكُمْ اِذْ اَنْشَاَكُمْ مِنَ اْلاَرْضِ وَ اِذْ اَنْتُمْ اَجِنَّةٌ في بُطُونِ اُمَّهاتِكُمْ فَلا تُزَكُّوا اَنْفُسَكُمْ هُوَ اَعْلَمُ بِمَنِ اتَّقي

Translate:

Translation (M.H. Shakir): Those who keep aloof from the great sins and the indecencies but the passing idea; surely your Lord is liberal in forgiving. He knows you best when He brings you forth from the earth and when you are embryos in the wombs of your mothers; therefore do not attribute purity to your souls; He knows him best who guards (against evil).

Interpretation:

32-THOSE WHO AVOID MAJOR SINS AND INDECENCIES, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF MINOR SINS, (WHICH SOMETIMES MAY COME TO CONTACT WITH). VERILY YOUR LORD IS LARGE IN HIS FORGIVENESS.
HE KNOWS YOU BEST, WHEN HE ORIGINATED YOU FROM EARTH. AND WHEN YOU WERE A FETUS IN YOUR MOTHER'S WOMB. THEREFORE, DO NOT BOAST (OF BEING PURIFIED), THAT HE KNOWS BEST THOSE WHO

AVOID EVIL.DO NOT BOAST! HE KNOWS YOU BETTER
VERSE NO.31-32
In the universe perfect ownership,and absolute governship, belongs to God; and the universal plan is in His hand. Most probably Man is the pick of the whole lot of creatures whom Allah intends to evolve.
Therefore, Man's conducts and strife play a vital role in his development and evolution. Allah governs and controls everything. He has laid the outcome and consequences of any kind of work and deed, be it a good one or an evil, in that very deed. If you do bad you will come to a bad result, and if you do good, the outcome is good.
The Arabic ``KABAER''translated to Major sins, literally is something that keeps Man aloof from goodness and prosperity or progress; and therefore it denotes a great and heinuous sin.
The Arabic,``LAMAA''translated to, ``Minor sins'' means approaching indecencies and sins:-
``Those who avoid Major Sins and indecencies; with the exception of Minor sins (VENIEL SINS) sometimes they may come to contact with unwittingly, ought to know that the Lord is Large in His Forgiveness.
The general idea about the Major sins, or what it is termed as ``Mortal sins'' is that:-``Those sins for which God has promised a punishment or Hell in the Quran, or those who are qualified as being great are the deadly Mortal Sins that must definitely be avoided.'' Among these are:-
``Murder, cursed by parent, Accusing an innocent woman of adultery, devouring the properties of an orphan and Escape in the Sacred War (JIHAD).
Here we ought to know that God's Mercy and forgiveness are limitless, and many a time they come into action without our asking. On the other hand, God has Mercy as well as justice. In His justice every deed has its due consequences for the doers.
Of course, there is always room for repentance and amendment before our death. God can easily blot out our evil record, or even change our sins for a reward, because everything belongs to him, and he governs everything. So there is no room for despair on account of our wrongs, as far as we wish and ask God for amendment and His Forgiveness.
