i want to clear my understanding on Certain issues i read in the Holy Quran. so i will put my question so that i can be explained.
19:47 [Abraham] said, "Peace will be upon you. I will ask forgiveness for you of my Lord. Indeed, He is ever gracious to me.
9:113 : It is not (fit) for the Prophet and those who believe that they should ask forgiveness for the polytheists, even though they should be near relatives, after it has become clear to them that they are inmates of the flaming fire.
above are the 2 verse in one of the verse Prophet Abraham PUBH is praying for forgiveness for his disbelieving Uncle. while in the other verse it is mentioned that it is not proper for a prophet and Muslims to ask forgiveness for people who disbelieved.
Please help me understand.
