آمَنَ الرَّسُولُ بِمَا أُنزِلَ إِلَيْهِ مِن رَّبِّهِ وَالْمُؤْمِنُونَ ۚ كُلٌّ آمَنَ بِاللَّهِ وَمَلَائِكَتِهِ وَكُتُبِهِ وَرُسُلِهِ لَا نُفَرِّقُ بَيْنَ أَحَدٍ مِّن رُّسُلِهِ ۚ وَقَالُوا سَمِعْنَا وَأَطَعْنَا ۖ غُفْرَانَكَ رَبَّنَا وَإِلَيْكَ الْمَصِيرُ لَا يُكَلِّفُ اللَّهُ نَفْسًا إِلَّا وُسْعَهَا ۚ لَهَا مَا كَسَبَتْ وَعَلَيْهَا مَا اكْتَسَبَتْ ۗ رَبَّنَا لَا تُؤَاخِذْنَا إِن نَّسِينَا أَوْ أَخْطَأْنَا ۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تَحْمِلْ عَلَيْنَا إِصْرًا كَمَا حَمَلْتَهُ عَلَى الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِنَا ۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تُحَمِّلْنَا مَا لَا طَاقَةَ لَنَا بِهٖ ۖ وَاعْفُ عَنَّا وَاغْفِرْ لَنَا وَارْحَمْنَآ ۚ أَنْتَ مَوْلٰىنَا فَانْصُرْنَا عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْكٰفِرِيْن (285،286)
The messenger has believed in what was revealed to him from his lord, and [so have] the believers. All of them have believed in allah and his angels and his books and his messengers, [saying], “we make no distinction between any of his messengers.” they say, “we hear and we obey. [we seek] your forgiveness, our lord, and to you is the [final] destination.” (285)
Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity. It will have [the consequence of] what [good] it has gained, and it will bear [the result of] what [evil] it has earned. “Our Lord, do not impose blame upon us if we have forgotten or erred.
Our Lord, and lay not upon us a burden like that which You laid upon those before us. Our Lord, and burden us not with that which we have no ability to bear. And pardon us, and forgive us, and have mercy upon us. You are our protector, so give us victory over the disbelieving people ” (286)
Here are the meaning and theme of the last verses of Surah Baqarah
The noble verse asserts that messenger of allah, may god’s prayers and peace be upon him – and the believers have faith in allah and his books, messengers, and angels, without discrimination or bias toward one prophet over others, for all of them are sent by Allah and are truthful and righteous.
Also, the believers declare their absolute obedience to god – glory be to him -and their adherence to his commands and prohibitions, and this obedience can be reflected in their hearts by faith and in their actions by their carefulness to stick to his teachings and avoid the wrong deeds.
And after they declared their faith, they asked god – glory be to him – to forgive them for their sins and to have mercy on them with his kindness, for they are fully aware of the day of resurrection, and they are preparing themselves for it.
It was said that when allah revealed this verse:
To Allah, ˹alone˺ belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Whether you reveal what is in your heart or conceal it, Allah will call you to account for it. He forgives whoever He wills, and punishes whoever He wills. And Allah is Most Capable of everything. (surah Baqarah, 284)
The Muslims were frightened and afraid, and told the prophet, Mohammed, that they can repent for what they did physically, However, they cannot repent for their bad feelings or doubts (that lie in their hearts), so Allah revealed this verse to mitigate their fear and assure them that he won’t charge any soul over its capacity.
Abu Huraira reported God’s messenger as saying, “God forgives my people the evil promptings which arise within them so long as they do not act upon them or speak about them.” (Bukhari and Muslim.)
Ibn Abbas said in the interpretation of this verse: It is a call from Muslims to God – Glory be to Him – that God – the Highest – won’t burden Muslims with what they are not able to do, and he won’t punish them, as he did with the previous nations such as Bani Israel who when he charged them with unbearable deeds as a punishment to their transgressions.
Then the believers ask Allah to pardon them and help them triumph over the infidels.

Recite sūra al-Baqara, for using it produces blessing and abandoning it produces regret, and the lazy are unable to recite it.”
The believer will come on the day of resurrection with a light in front of him because he referred to those last verses and used to recite them in life.
Ibn ‘Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) reported:
While Jibril (Gabriel) was sitting with the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ), he heard a sound above him. He lifted his head and said: “This is a gate that has been opened in heaven today. It was never opened before.” Then an angel descended through it, he said: “This is an angel who has come down to earth. He never came down before.” He sent greetings and said:
“Rejoice with two lights given to you. Such lights were not given to any Prophet before you. These (lights) are Fatihah-til-Kitab (Surat Al-Fatihah), and the concluding Ayat of Surat Al-Baqarah. You will never recite a word from them without being given the blessings it contains.”
Reading the last two Ayats of surah Baqarah protects the Muslims from all harms such as devils, envy, and black magic. And the house where surah Baqarah is recited, devils run away from it.
Bashīr reported God’s messenger as saying:
“Two thousand years before creating the heavens and the earth God inscribed a book of which He sent down two verses with which He concluded Sūrat al-Baqara. The devil will not come near a house in which they are recited three nights.”
Tirmidhī and Dārimī transmitted it
Reciting the last verses of surah Al-Baqarah is a conversation between you and Allah
When you say: Our Lord, do not impose blame upon us if we have forgotten or erred, allah answers: ” I did”.
When you say: Our Lord, and burden us not with that which we have no ability to bear, allah answers: ” I did”. ( And some interpreters say those burdens include mad love and debts.
And when you say pardon us, and forgive us, and have mercy upon us. Allah answers:, I’ve pardoned, forgiven, and had my mercy upon you.
