الآية رقم (141) - تِلْكَ أُمَّةٌ قَدْ خَلَتْ لَهَا مَا كَسَبَتْ وَلَكُم مَّا كَسَبْتُمْ وَلاَ تُسْأَلُونَ عَمَّا كَانُواْ يَعْمَلُونَ

(141) - “That is a nation which has passed on. It will get [the consequence of] what it earned, and you will get what you have earned. And you will not be asked about what they used to do.”

There is no repetition in the Noble Qur’an but that it holds a secret, so, it is on us to search for the secrets in every repeated word in the Holy Qur’an, and to search the source and the reasons for the revelation of every word. This verse was mentioned exactly as it was previously, however, the meanings are different due to the context. Hence, it is on us to search in what preceded it and what came after it. The verse that preceded it was in the context of Ibrahim, Ishaq and Yaqub u and Allah U said to them, “For surely your lineage will not intercede for you with Allah U and your fathers are not able to admit you into paradise if you yourselves do not do the work”. As for this verse, what came before it was the claim of the Jews that Ibrahim, Ismail and Ishaq were Jews or Christians so Allah U says to them, “You have no argument or proof on the day of Judgement even if Ibrahim u is a Jew, there is no argument or proof for you with respect to your lack of belief, because, for them is what they have earned and for you is what you have earned. Hence there is a great difference between these two verses that seem to be exactly the same and this is only known by analyzing the verses that come before and after it. The former of the two verses means there is no intercession for you, and the latter means there is no argument or proof for you.

And you will not be asked about their deeds, rather you yourselves will be asked about your own deeds.
