  • Quran 4:176 – Law Of Inheritance Revealed At Different Times?

    Posted by Muhammad Talha on July 27, 2022 at 11:05 pm

    We see that Allah describes the Law of Inheritance in detail at the beginning of Sura Nisa but then leaves this topic and talk about other topics and then at the end again mentions this topic in the last Ayat of the Surah.

    Was that Ayah revealed because the initial laws were unclear? Why wasn’t this topic followed with consistency?

    This is the style of Quran to explain a thing, if required, at some later stage. Such verse are called explanatory verses. These are usually answers to the questions, for example, see 2: 219 and 4:174 or without it, but it is about a thing or problem which could have been understood with deliberation, but God out of His favour explained it to save the Muslim from differences in opinions. God does it to let His audience first make an effort to understand His injunction, and in this process they raise questions and then they are provided with answer. This technique is used in teaching.

    Later explanation was a responsibility God has taken upon Himself and mentioned it here:

    إِنَّ عَلَيْنَا جَمْعَهُ وَقُرْآنَهُ ‎﴿١٧﴾‏ فَإِذَا قَرَأْنَاهُ فَاتَّبِعْ قُرْآنَهُ ‎﴿١٨﴾‏ ثُمَّ إِنَّ عَلَيْنَا بَيَانَهُ

    “upon Us is its collection and recital. So, when [at that time] We recite it, follow that recital of it. Then upon Us is to explain it [for you wherever need be].” (75: 17-19)
