Quran Chapter 2- 187b (Pt-2, Stg-1) (L-224) - درس قرآن

Aim of copulation

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.)

 عَلِمَ ٱللَّهُ أَنَّكُمْ كُنتُمْ تَخْتَانُونَ أَنفُسَكُمْ فَتَابَ عَلَيْكُمْ وَعَفَاعَنكُمْ فَٱلْـَٰٔنَ بَٰشِرُوهُنَّ وَٱبْتَغُوا۟ مَا كَتَبَ ٱللَّهُ لَكُمْ (187   b)

187b.  Allah is aware that ye were deceiving yourselves in this respect and He hath turned in mercy towards you and relieved you. So hold intercourse with them and seek that which Allah hath ordained for you,
187b.  ‘AlimAllaahu  ‘annakum  kuntum    takhtaanuuna  ‘anfusakum  fataaba  ‘alaykum  wa  ‘afaa  ‘an-kum.  Fal-‘aana  baashiruu-hunna  wabtaguu  maa  katabAllaahu  lakum,


Takhtaanuuna  ‘anfusakum – (you were deceiving yourselves), some weak Muslims used to convict themselves of deception.

Baashiruu-hunna – (hold intercourse with your wives)

In the above lesson, it has been described that in the beginning of Islam, the Muslims did not use to go in unto their wives during the nights of the fast like the People of the Scripture. But some of them could not control themselves and either broke this restriction due to being subdued of their sexual feelings or grew desire and intention of deception in the heart of someone. God Almighty cleared this matter and permitted to hold intercourse with their wives also like eating and drinking at night.

‘Abtaguu  maa  katabAllaahu  lakum – (seek that which Allah hath ordained for you) ‘abtagaa’ means to try to get and seek for anything. maa  katabAllahu  lakum (which Allah hath ordained for you). It indicates towards ‘the children’ and breed which is a cause of production in the consequence of intercourse.

In addition to the permission, a warning has also been given. That is to say; the purpose of going in unto wives should be to produce the children. Although someone gets natural taste also from the act of intercourse but Islam has kept the real and bigger object from this act which is attainment of the children and augmentation of the breed, so that the relish of an individual may become the cause of collective gain.

It has become evident from this guidance of Holy Qur’an that birth control and pregnancy prohibition etc. all are the wrongful and unlawful paths. It is the natural result of holding intercourse. One should keep hope of it and wait for it. Only the sensuality has no object.
