Appears 2 times in the Quran. (Root: عذر)
  1. They will excuse themselves to you when you go back to them. Say: Urge no excuse, by no means will we believe you; indeed Allah has informed us of matters relating to you; and now Allah and His Messenger will see your doings, then you shall be brought back to the Knower of the unseen and the seen, then He will inform you of what you did.

  2. And permission shall not be given to them so that they should offer excuses.
