Gross Sin (24:23 – 24:26)

Gross Sin

[24:23] Surely, those who falsely accuse married women who are pious believers have incurred condemnation in this life and in the Hereafter; they have incurred a horrendous retribution.
[24:24] The day will come when their own tongues, hands, and feet will bear witness to everything they had done.
[24:25] On that day, GOD will requite them fully for their works, and they will find out that GOD is the Truth.
[24:26] The bad women for the bad men, and the bad men for the bad women, and the good women for the good men, and the good men for the good women. The latter are innocent of such accusations. They have attained forgiveness and a generous reward.

[36:65] On that day we will seal their mouths; their hands and feet will bear witness to everything they had done. 

Hands and feet are indicators to what a person is actually feeling e.g. lying.

The Video Record

[41:21] They will say to their skins, “Why did you bear witness against us?” They will reply, “GOD made us speak up; He is the One who causes everything to speak. He is the One who created you the first time, and now you have been returned to Him.” [41:22] There is no way you can hide from your own hearing, your eyes, or your skins. In fact, you thought that GOD was unaware of much of what you do.

[18:49] The record will be shown, and you will see the guilty fearful of its contents. They will say, “Woe to us. How come this book leaves nothing, small or large, without counting it?” They will find everything they had done brought forth. Your Lord is never unjust towards anyone. 

The Video Tape*

[17:13] We have recorded the fate of every human being; it is tied to his neck. On the Day of Resurrection we will hand him a record that is accessible. [17:14] Read your own record. Today, you suffice as your own reckoner.
*17:13 Your life is already recorded, as if on a video tape, from birth to death. This same record will be made accessible to us upon resurrection. See 57:22 & Appendix 14.

The Believers

[69:19] As for the one who receives his record with his right hand, he will say, “Come read my record. [69:20] “I did believe that I was going to be held accountable.” [69:21] He has deserved a happy life. [69:22]

In an exalted Paradise.

[69:23] Its fruits are within reach. [69:24] Eat and drink happily in return for your works in days past. The Disbelievers [69:25] As for him who is given his record in his left hand, he will say, “Oh, I wish I never received my record. [69:26] “I wish I never knew my account. [69:27] “I wish my death was eternal. [69:28] “My money cannot help me. [69:29] “All my power is gone.” 

[84:7] As for the one who receives his record in his right hand, [84:8] His reckoning will be easy. [84:9] He will return to his people joyfully. [84:10] As for the one who receives his record behind his back, [84:11] He will be ridden with remorse. 

Are our thoughts included in our record or only our actions?

What happens to the sins that we carried out that we repented for?

Repentance: Cleaning the Slate

[9:11] If they repent and observe the Contact Prayers (Salat) and give the obligatory charity (Zakat), then they are your brethren in religion. We thus explain the revelations for people who know.

[13:39] GOD erases whatever He wills, and fixes. With Him is the original Master Record.
