With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Surah 24 (The Light)
False accusations incur the wrath of Allah SWT
Verse 19 “Those who love (to see) scandal published broadcast among the Believers, will have a grievous Penalty in this life and in the Hereafter: Allah knows, and ye know not”
False accusations is a serious crime, it brings about reputational damage and sows social discord. In verses 11 to 20 Allah SWT reprimands those who sought to impugn the character of a fellow believer (in this case Ayesha RA) and sternly reminds the rest of the believers that they should have applied their minds carefully to the matter and applied Allah’s law to test the veracity of the allegations (i.e. bringing four witnesses to testify).
Verse 12 “Why did not the believers – men and women – when ye heard of the affair,- put the best construction on it in their own minds and say, “This (charge) is an obvious lie”
