And when it is said to them: “Come to what Allah has sent down (the Qur'ân) and to the Messenger (to obey him)”, they say: “That (religion) on which we found our fathers is sufficient (enough) for us”. What! Even though their fathers knew nothing (concerning these truths) and did not attain to Guidance?
O you who believe (who are âmenû)! Your souls are upon you (the responsibility of your souls are upon you). He who is in Misguidance cannot harm you if you are on the Guidance. To Allah is your return all together. And then He will inform you of what you used to do.
O you who believe (who are âmenû)! When (the state of) death draws nigh to one of you, at the time of bequest, let two just men from among you bear witness between you. Or if death befalls you while you are travelling in the land, call to witness the two men who are not of you. You should detain them after the prayer; if you doubt. They shall both swear by Allah saying: We will not take for it a price, even though it was a near kinsman, and we will not hide the testimony of Allah. Otherwise certainly we should be of the sinful.
Then if it becomes known that they both have been guilty of sin, let two others stand in their place who are foremost in claim from those who have a lawful right, and they swear by Allah saying: “Certainly our testimony is truer than the testimony of those two, and We have not exceeded the limit”. Otherwise most surely we should be of the wrongdoers.
This (kind of oath) is more proper than the fact that they come face to face with the testimony (that the inheritors do not trust in the witnesses) or fear that the oaths will be refused after their oaths. And have piety (takwâ) towards Allah and listen. And Allah does not guide the Al-Fasiqûn.
