Surah 66 - Al Tahrim PROHIBITION
066.001 O Prophet! Why holdest thou to be forbidden that which God has made
lawful to thee? Thou seekest to please thy consorts. But God is Oft-Forgiving,
066.002 God has already ordained for you, (O men), the dissolution of your oaths (in
some cases): and God is your Protector, and He is Full of Knowledge and Wisdom.
066.003 When the Prophet disclosed a matter in confidence to one of his consorts,
and she then divulged it (to another), and God made it known to him, he confirmed
part thereof and repudiated a part. Then when he told her thereof, she said, "Who told
thee this? "He said, "He told me Who knows and is well-acquainted (with all things)."
066.004 If ye two turn in repentance to Him, your hearts are indeed so inclined; But
if ye back up each other against him, truly God is his Protector, and Gabriel,
(every) righteous one among those who believe,- and furthermore, the angels - will
back (him) up.
066.005 It may be, if he divorced you (all), that God will give him in exchange
consorts better than you,- who submit (their wills), who believe, who are devout, who
turn to God in repentance, who worship (in humility), who travel (for Faith) and fast,-
previously married or virgins.
066.006 O ye who believe! save yourselves and your families from a Fire whose
is Men and Stones, over which are (appointed) angels stern (and) severe, who flinch
not (from executing) the Commands they receive from God, but do (precisely) what
they are commanded.
066.007 (They will say), "O ye Unbelievers! Make no excuses this Day! Ye are
being but requited for all that ye did!"
066.008 O ye who believe! Turn to God with sincere repentance: In the hope that
your Lord will remove from you your ills and admit you to Gardens beneath which
Rivers flow,- the Day that God will not permit to be humiliated the Prophet and
who believe with him. Their Light will run forward before them and by their right
hands, while they say, "Our Lord! Perfect our Light for us, and grant us Forgiveness:
for Thou hast power over all things."
066.009 O Prophet! Strive hard against the Unbelievers and the Hypocrites, and
firm against them. Their abode is Hell,- an evil refuge (indeed).
066.010 God sets forth, for an example to the Unbelievers, the wife of Noah and the
wife of Lut: they were (respectively) under two of our righteous servants, but
were false to their (husbands), and they profited nothing before God on their account,
but were told: "Enter ye the Fire along with (others) that enter!"
066.011 And God sets forth, as an example to those who believe the wife of Pharaoh:
Behold she said: "O my Lord! Build for me, in nearness to Thee, a mansion in the
Garden, and save me from Pharaoh and his doings, and save me from those that do
066.012 And Mary the daughter of 'Imran, who guarded her chastity; and We
breathed into (her body) of Our spirit; and she testified to the truth of the words of her
Lord and of His Revelations, and was one of the devout (servants).
