Prophet, why do you prohibit [yourself from] what Allāh
has made lawful for you, seeking the approval of your wives? And Allāh is Forgiving and Merciful.
2. Allāh has already ordained for you [Muslims] the
dissolution of your oaths. And Allāh is your
protector, and He is the Knowing, the Wise.
[remember] when the Prophet confided to one of his wives a statement; and when
she informed [another] of it and Allāh showed
it to him, he made known part of it and ignored a part. And when he informed
her about it, she said, "Who told you this?" He said, "I was
informed by the Knowing, the Acquainted."
you two [wives] repent to Allāh, [it is best],
for your hearts have deviated. But if you cooperate against him – then indeed Allāh is his protector, and Gabriel and the righteous
of the believers and the angels, moreover, are [his] assistants.
his Lord, if he divorced you [all], would substitute for him wives better than
you – submitting [to Allāh], believing,
devoutly obedient, repentant, worshipping, and traveling – [ones] previously
married and virgins.
you who have believed, protect yourselves and your families from a Fire whose
fuel is people and stones, over which are [appointed] angels, harsh and severe;
they do not disobey Allāh in what He commands
them but do what they are commanded.
you who have disbelieved, make no excuses that Day. You will only be
recompensed for what you used to do.
you who have believed, repent to Allāh with
sincere repentance. Perhaps your Lord will remove from you your misdeeds and
admit you into gardens beneath which rivers flow [on] the Day when Allāh will not disgrace the Prophet and those who
believed with him. Their light will proceed before them and on their right;
they will say, "Our Lord, perfect for us our light and forgive us. Indeed, You are over all things
Prophet, strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites and be harsh upon
them. And their refuge is Hell, and wretched is the destination.
10. Allāh presents an example of those who disbelieved:
the wife of Noah and the wife of Lot. They were under two of Our righteous
servants but betrayed them, so those prophets did not avail them from Allāh at all, and it was said, "Enter the Fire
with those who enter."
Allāh presents an example of those who
believed: the wife of Pharaoh, when she said, "My Lord, build for me near
You a house in Paradise and save me from Pharaoh and his deeds and save me from
the wrongdoing people."
[the example of] Mary, the daughter of ‘Imrān, who guarded her chastity, so We
blew into [her garment] through Our angel, and she believed in the words of her
Lord and His scriptures and was of the devoutly obedient.
