The Qur'an (Rodwell tr) : Sura 66 - The Forbidding

SURA LXVI (66) - The Forbidding (Medina - 12 Verses) (CIX - 464)

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Why, O Prophet! dost thou hold that to be forbidden which God hath made

lawful to thee, from a desire to please thy wives, since God is Lenient,

Merciful?

God hath allowed you release from your oaths; and God is your master:

and He is the Knowing, the Wise.

When the prophet told a recent occurrence as a secret to one of his

wives, and when she divulged it and God informed him of this, he acquainted her

with part and withheld part. And when he had told her of it, she said, "Who

told thee this?" He said, "The Knowing, the Sage hath told it me.

"If ye both be turned to God in penitence, for now have your hearts gone

astray.... but if ye conspire against the Prophet, then know that God is his

Protector, and Gabriel, and every just man among the faithful; and the angels

are his helpers besides.

"Haply if he put you both away, his Lord will give him in exchange other

wives better than you, Muslims, believers, devout, penitent, obedient,

observant of fasting, both known of men and virgins."

O Believers! save yourselves and your families from the fire whose fuel

is men and stones, over which are set angels fierce and mighty: they disobey

not God in what He hath commanded them, but execute His behests.

O ye Infidels! make no excuses for yourselves this day; ye shall surely

be recompensed according to your works.

O Believers! turn to God with the turning of true penitence; haply your

Lord will cancel your evil deeds, and will bring you into the gardens 'neath

which the rivers flow, on the day when God will not shame the Prophet, nor

those who have shared his faith: their light shall run before them, and on

their rights hands! they shall say, "Lord perfect our light, and pardon us:

for thou hat power over all things."

O Prophet! make war on the infidels and hypocrites, and deal rigorously

with them. Hell shall be their abode! and wretched the passage to it!

66:10 God setteth forth as an example to unbelievers the wife of Noah and the

wife of Lot; they were under two of our righteous servants, both of whom they

deceived: but their husbands availed them nought against God: and it shall be

said "Enter ye into the fire with those who enter."

God also holdeth forth to those who believe the example of the wife of

Pharaoh, when she said, "Lord, build me an house with thee in Paradise, and

deliver me from Pharaoh and his doings; and deliver me from the wicked:"

And Mary, the daughter of Imran, who kept her maidenhood, and into

whose womb we breathed of our spirit, and who believed in the words of her

Lord and His Scriptures, and was one of the devout.
