Surah 66 - Prohibition
In the Name
of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
Prophet! why do you forbid (yourself) that which Allah has made lawful for you; you seek
to please your wives; and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
indeed has sanctioned for you the expiation of your oaths and Allah is your Protector, and
He is the Knowing the Wise.
when the prophet secretly communicated a piece of information to one of his wives -- but
when she informed (others) of it, and Allah made him to know it, he made known part of it
and avoided part; so when he informed her of it, she said: Who informed you of this? He
said: The Knowing, the one Aware, informed me.
you both turn to Allah, then indeed your hearts are already inclined (to this); and if you
back up each other against him, then surely Allah it is Who is his Guardian, and Jibreel
and the believers that do good, and the angels after that are the aiders.
Maybe, his Lord, if he divorce you, will give him in your place wives better than you,
submissive, faithful, obedient, penitent, adorers, fasters, widows and virgins.
[66.6] O you
who believe! save yourselves and your families from a fire whose fuel is men and stones;
over it are angels stern and strong, they do not disobey Allah in what He commands them,
and do as they are commanded.
[66.7] O you
who disbelieve! do not urge excuses today; you shall be rewarded only according to what
[66.8] O you
who believe! turn to Allah a sincere turning; maybe your Lord will remove from you your
evil and cause you to enter gardens beneath which rivers flow, on the day on which Allah
will not abase the Prophet and those who believe with him; their light shall run on before
them and on their right hands; they shall say: Our Lord! make perfect for us our light,
and grant us protection, surely Thou hast power over all things.
Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites, and be hard against them;
and their abode is hell; and evil is the resort.
Allah sets forth an example to those who disbelieve the wife of Nuh and the wife of Lut:
they were both under two of Our righteous servants, but they acted treacherously towards
them so they availed them naught against Allah, and it was said: Enter both the fire with
those who enter.
Allah sets forth an example to those who believe the wife of Firon when she said: My Lord!
build for me a house with Thee in the garden and deliver me from Firon and his doing, and
deliver me from the unjust people:
Marium, the daughter of Imran, who guarded her chastity, so We breathed into her of Our
inspiration and she accepted the truth of the words of her Lord and His books, and she was
of the obedient ones.
