(242) كَذَلِكَ يُبَيِّنُ اللّهُ لَكُمْ آيَاتِهِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَعْقِلُونَ
242. " Thus Allah makes clear to you His Signs, so that you might understand."
In this verse, which is the last verse from the group of verses
about divorce, the Qur'an syas:
" Thus Allah makes clear to you His Signs, so that you might understand."
It is evident that the purpose of the Qur'anic phrase /la'allakum ta'qilun/ ' so that you might understand ' is that the intention of movement from the beginning should be towards the destination of ' action '; else, mere contemplation upon ordinances and understanding them, with no deed, will be fruitless.
