Bismi Llaahi l-raḥmaani l-raḥeem
Ya ayyuha alnnabiyyu lima tuharrimu ma ahalla Allahu laka tabtaghee mardata azwajika waAllahu ghafoorun raheemun;
O Nabi! Why do you forbid yourself from what Allah had made permissible to you, seeking to please your wives? Allah is the Ghafur , the Rahim .
Qad farada Allahu lakum tahillata aymanikum waAllahu mawlakum wahuwa alAAaleemu alhakeemu;
Allah has ordained you to resolve your oaths (by paying compensation)! Allah is your protector. He is the Aleem, the Hakim.
Waith asarra alnnabiyyu ila baAAdi azwajihi hadeethan falamma nabbaat bihi waathharahu Allahu AAalayhi AAarrafa baAAdahu waaAArada AAan baAAdin falamma nabbaaha bihi qalat man anbaaka hatha qala nabbaaniya alAAaleemu alkhabeeru;
And remember when the (final) Nabi confided a secret to one his wives (Hafsa r.a.]) and she informed the other (Aisha [r.a.]) and Allah showed it to him (Rasulullah saw), he made known a part of it and avoided mentioning a part. Then when he told this to his wife (Hafsa [r.a.]), she said, “Who told you this?” and he said, “The One who is [Aleem and Habir.”
In tatooba ila Allahi faqad saghat quloobukuma wain tathahara AAalayhi fainna Allaha huwa mawlahu wajibreelu wasalihu almumineena waalmalaikatu baAAda thalika thaheerun;
If you both (Aisha [r.a.] and Hafsa [r.a.]) repent to Allah (it is best), or your hearts will have deviated (from the Truth)... But if you cooperate against him, indeed Allah is his protector, and Gabriel, and the righteous among the believers (Aisha’s father Abu Bakr [r.a.], Hafsa’s father Omar [r.a.]) and the angels are also his helpers.
AAasa rabbuhu in tallaqakunna an yubdilahu azwajan khayran minkunna muslimatin muminatin qanitatin taibatin AAabidatin saihatin thayyibatin waabkaran;
Were he to divorce you, his Rabb may well replace you with better wives, who have submitted, who believe, obey, repent, worship, who are given to fasting (from worldly things), both previously married and virgins.
Ya ayyuha allatheena amanoo qoo anfusakum waahleekum naran waqooduha alnnasu waalhijaratu AAalayha malaikatun ghilathun shidadun la yaAAsoona Allaha ma amarahum wayafAAaloona ma yumaroona;
O you who have believed! Protect yourselves (nafs) and your close ones (the correspondent of your body in the future) from the Fire whose fuel is people and stones (idols and other inanimate objects of worship), over which are angels (of hell), who are powerful, harsh and severe and who do not disobey Allah in what He commands them, but do as they are commanded.
Ya ayyuha allatheena kafaroo la taAAtathiroo alyawma innama tujzawna ma kuntum taAAmaloona;
(The keepers of Hell will say), “O you who have denied the knowledge of the reality! There is no room for excuse today! You are only living the consequences of your own doings!”
Ya ayyuha allatheena amanoo tooboo ila Allahi tawbatan nasoohan AAasa rabbukum an yukaffira AAankum sayyiatikum wayudkhilakum jannatin tajree min tahtiha alanharu yawma la yukhzee Allahu alnnabiyya waallatheena amanoo maAAahu nooruhum yasAAa bayna aydeehim wabiaymanihim yaqooloona rabbana atmim lana noorana waighfir lana innaka AAala kulli shayin qadeerun;
O believers! Repent to Allah with a sincere, genuine repentance. Perhaps your Rabb will cover your bad deeds and admit you to Paradises underneath which rivers flow. He will not disgrace the Nabi and those who believed with him at that time. Their Nur (light of knowledge) will race before them and on their right. They will say, “Our Rabb... Perfect our Nur (increase the scope of our observation) and forgive us... Indeed, you are Qadir over all things.”
Ya ayyuha alnnabiyyu jahidi alkuffara waalmunafiqeena waoghluth AAalayhim wamawahum jahannamu wabisa almaseeru;
O Nabi! Strive with those who deny the knowledge of the reality and the two-faced (hypocrites), and be firm and uncompromising towards them. Their abode is Hell. What a wretched place of return!
Daraba Allahu mathalan lillatheena kafaroo imraata noohin waimraata lootin kanata tahta AAabdayni min AAibadina salihayni fakhanatahuma falam yughniya AAanhuma mina Allahi shayan waqeela odkhula alnnara maAAa alddakhileena;
Allah gives the example of the wives of Lot and Noah to those who deny the knowledge of the reality... (Both those women) were under (the marriage of) two of Our righteous servants. But they (the wives) betrayed them, so they (Lot and Noah) could not repel anything (coming) from Allah from them (their wives). (Both those women were told), “Enter the Fire along with the others!”
Wadaraba Allahu mathalan lillatheena amanoo imraata firAAawna ith qalat rabbi ibni lee AAindaka baytan fee aljannati wanajjinee min firAAawna waAAamalihi wanajjinee mina alqawmi alththalimeena;
And Allah gives the example of Pharaoh’s wife (as a lesson). She (Asiya) said, “My Rabb, build for me in Your sight a house in Paradise! Save me from Pharaoh and his deeds! Save me from the wrongdoing people!”
Wamaryama ibnata AAimrana allatee ahsanat farjaha fanafakhna feehi min roohina wasaddaqat bikalimati rabbiha wakutubihi wakanat mina alqaniteena;
And (the example of) Mary, the daughter of Imran, who protected her chastity so We breathed (manifested) from Our spirit into her. She confirmed her Rabb’s existence with His Names in His Words (manifestations) and His Books (knowledge) and was of those who submitted and obeyed.
