ءَامَنَ ٱلرَّسُولُ بِمَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيۡهِ مِن رَّبِّهِۦ وَٱلۡمُؤۡمِنُونَ‌ۚ كُلٌّ ءَامَنَ بِٱللَّهِ وَمَلَـٰٓٮِٕكَتِهِۦ وَكُتُبِهِۦ وَرُسُلِهِۦ لَا نُفَرِّقُ بَيۡنَ أَحَدٍ۬ مِّن رُّسُلِهِۦ‌ۚ وَقَالُواْ سَمِعۡنَا وَأَطَعۡنَا‌ۖ غُفۡرَانَكَ رَبَّنَا وَإِلَيۡكَ ٱلۡمَصِيرُ (٢٨٥) لَا يُكَلِّفُ ٱللَّهُ نَفۡسًا إِلَّا وُسۡعَهَا‌ۚ لَهَا مَا كَسَبَتۡ وَعَلَيۡہَا مَا ٱكۡتَسَبَتۡ‌ۗ رَبَّنَا لَا تُؤَاخِذۡنَآ إِن نَّسِينَآ أَوۡ أَخۡطَأۡنَا‌ۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تَحۡمِلۡ عَلَيۡنَآ إِصۡرً۬ا كَمَا حَمَلۡتَهُ ۥ عَلَى ٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبۡلِنَا‌ۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تُحَمِّلۡنَا مَا لَا طَاقَةَ لَنَا بِهِۦ‌ۖ وَٱعۡفُ عَنَّا وَٱغۡفِرۡ لَنَا وَٱرۡحَمۡنَآ‌ۚ أَنتَ مَوۡلَٮٰنَا فَٱنصُرۡنَا عَلَى ٱلۡقَوۡمِ ٱلۡڪَـٰفِرِينَ (٢٨٦)

Surah Al-Baqara

The messenger believeth in that which hath been revealed unto him from his Lord and (so do) believers. Each one believeth in Allah and His angels and His scriptures and His messengers – We make no distinction between any of His messengers – and they say: We hear, and we obey. (Grant us) Thy forgiveness, our Lord. Unto Thee is the journeying. (285) Allah tasketh not a soul beyond its scope. For it (is only) that which it hath earned, and against it (only) that which it hath deserved. Our Lord! Condemn us not if we forget, or miss the mark! Our Lord! Lay not on us such a burden as thou didst lay on those before us! Our Lord! Impose not on us that which we have not the strength to bear! Pardon us, absolve us and have mercy on us, Thou, our Protector, and give us victory over the disbelieving folk. (286)

Commentary

These are the last two verses of Surah al-Baqarah. Great merits have been attributed to these two verses in authentic ahadith. The Holy Prophet Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam: Peace be upon him has said that one who recites these two verses during the night, they will be sufficient for him.

The noble Qur’an, towards the far end, teaches Muslims to make a special du’a or prayer in which forgiveness has been sought on commission of some act because of forgetfulness or neglect or mistake. It was said: Our Lord, do not hold us accountable, if we forget or make a mistake.

In short, Allah Almighty bestowed His best when He promised the acceptance of all these prayers through His Rasul (Prophet), the last among the prophets, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him.

Biblically referenced as the fruit growing on the Tree of Knowledge, the princely pomegranate also has resonance in Islamic texts and for our health.

The princely pomegranate, ar-Rumm in Arabic, is mentioned in the Qur’an as one of the many delicious rewards awaiting in Paradise. Its numerous uses in cooking and medicine, as well as its beautiful structure, make the fruit a wonder for Muslims who believe that each pomegranate seed is a sign of The Sustainer.

Pomegranates are mentioned three times in the Qur’an.
1) As one of the fruits that will be found in paradise:

“In both of them (gardens) are two springs, sprouting? in both of them are fruit and palm trees and pomegranates.

so which of the favors of your Lord would you deny?” (Quran, 55, 56 —–69)

2. as a reminder of the nutritious provision from God,

3.And as a sign of His artistry,

“And it is He who sends down rain from the sky, and We produce thereby the growth of all things. We produce it greenery from which We produce grains arranged in layers. And from the palm trees- of its emerging fruit are clusters hanging low. And [We produce] gardens of grapevines and olives and pomegranates, similar yet varied. Look at each of its fruit when it yields and [at] its ripening. Indeed in that are the signs for a people who believe” (Quran, 6:99)

The frequent mentions of this fruit are because of its gem-like beauty, a glistening core of seeds compacted in a layer resembling honeycomb.
Equally astounding are the colors of the fruit and flowers which are an attestation to the Qur’anic verse:
“And whatsoever He has created for you on the earth of varying colors [and qualities from vegetation and fruits] and from animals. Verily! In this is a sign for people who remember.” (Qur’an, 16:13)

Nutritional Value
nutritionally pomegranate fruit is rich in Vitamin C with a calorific value of 65 (calories), while it is a good source of sodium, riboflavin and calcium.

Prophet Muhammad of Islam, peace be upon him, told his Companions that each pomegranate potentially held a heavenly grain;
there’s not a pomegranate which does not have a pip from one of the pomegranate of the Garden (Jannah) in it. “Abu Nu’aim narrated by Anas)

And these pips, along with the outer skin, are rich with antioxidant and antibacterial properties, testimony to its benefits for cleansing the palate. The Prophet therefore also said,
“Pomegranate and its rind strengthen digestion (stomach). (Abu Nuaim, narrated by Ali)
