[2] Tawbah [Repentance]: Repentance And Declaring The Truth Which One Conceal

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Allaah [The Most High] said:

إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ يَكۡتُمُونَ مَآ أَنزَلۡنَا مِنَ ٱلۡبَيِّنَـٰتِ وَٱلۡهُدَىٰ مِنۢ بَعۡدِ مَا بَيَّنَّـٰهُ لِلنَّاسِ فِى ٱلۡكِتَـٰبِ‌ۙ أُوْلَـٰٓٮِٕكَ يَلۡعَنُہُمُ ٱللَّهُ وَيَلۡعَنُہُمُ ٱللَّـٰعِنُونَ

إِلَّا ٱلَّذِينَ تَابُواْ وَأَصۡلَحُواْ وَبَيَّنُواْ فَأُوْلَـٰٓٮِٕكَ أَتُوبُ عَلَيۡہِمۡ‌ۚ وَأَنَا ٱلتَّوَّابُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ

Verily, those who conceal the clear proofs, evidences and the guidance, which We have sent down, after We have made it clear for the people in the Book, they are the ones cursed by Allah and cursed by the cursers. Except those who repent and do righteous deeds, and openly declare [the truth which they concealed]. These, I will accept their repentance. And I am the One Who accepts repentance, the Most Merciful. [Surah Al-Baqarah. Aayaat 159-160]

Abu Saaleh reported from Ibn Abbaas [radiyallaahu anhumaa] who said: This Aayah was revealed regarding the leaders of the Yahood, [who] concealed the Bayyinaat and the Hudaa, which Allaah revealed in the Tawraat. The Bayyinaat are the [rulings] regarding what is lawful and unlawful, the prescribed punishments and the obligatory [acts, duties]. And Hudaa [in this Aayah] is the description of the Prophet [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] and his characteristics.  [أُوْلَـٰٓٮِٕكَ يَلۡعَنُہُمُ ٱللَّهُ وَيَلۡعَنُہُمُ ٱللَّـٰعِنُون- they (i.e. those who conceal the proofs) are the ones cursed by Allah and cursed by the cursers]. [إِلَّا ٱلَّذِينَ تَابُواْ وَأَصۡلَحُواْ وَبَيَّنُواْ فَأُوْلَـٰٓٮِٕكَ أَتُوبُ عَلَيۡہِمۡ‌ۚ وَأَنَا ٱلتَّوَّابُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ – Except those who repent and do righteous deeds, and openly declare (the truth which they concealed). These, I will accept their repentance. And I am the One Who accepts repentance, the Most Merciful]- Meaning: Ibn Mas’ood [radiyallaahu-anhu] said: Except those Yahood who repent, rectify their deeds and make known the characteristics of Allaah’s Messengers which are mentioned in their book.
