1.the word العفو is from root letters ع ف و which means safety, welfare, happiness prosperity. A commonly used word is عافیت. This is one of those several places of Quran where it seems the interpretation is delibrately changed from its real meanings to give a new meaning .  
 
وَيَسْأَلُونَكَ مَاذَا يُنفِقُونَ قُلِ الْعَفْوَ ۗ كَذَٰلِكَ يُبَيِّنُ اللَّهُ لَكُمُ الْآيَاتِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَفَكَّرُونَ  
 
اور تم سے یہ بھی پوچھیں گے کہ کس مقصد کے لئے خرچ کریں ، کہہ دو " عافیت کے لئیے " اس طرح خدا تمہارے لئے اپنے احکامات بیان فرماتا ہے تاکہ تم فکر کرو ۔
