66:1  O’ Mohammad, why do you declare something lawful as unlawful to you? In order to please your wife? God will forgive you for this as He is the Most Forgiving, the Most Merciful
66:2  God has already made lawful for you to break your oath of such a kind through expiation as God is your Protector. Indeed God knows everything and is the Most Wise
66:3  [God knows the secrets of everyone]. Once Mohammad revealed a secret to his wife and she informed the others, Mohammad asked his wife why she has not kept the secret! His wife was surprised and asked who has informed him. Mohammad said: “The Lord Who Knows and is aware of everything.”
66:4  If you, two wives of Mohammad (Aysha & Hafash), return to God (as you are already inclined to do so) to ask forgiveness from your Lord for “conspiracy” behind your husband, it will be the best for you. If you, on the contrary, back up each other against your husband, then you are against God, angle Gabriel, the righteous believers and the angles who help the messenger of God
66:5  Bear in mind that if Mohammad divorces you, God will put better than you in Mohammad’s path to marry: the virgins or previously married women who are true Muslims, believing, obedient, mindful of God, worshipper of Lord, and observant of fasting
66:6  O’ you who believe, protect yourselves and your families from being cast into Hellfire of such intensity that will turn the stone into a blaze. Know that the Angles appointed as Hell Keepers are stern and will never disobey God’s command in order to show mercy to the guilty ones. …
66:7  …They will say: “O you who chose to disbelieve, do not look for an excuse today. You are here in Hell in account of what you were doing.”
66:8  O’ you who believe, ask God from the bottom of you heart for forgiveness. May God forgive your sins and let you enter into the gardens of paradise where the rivers flow. Know that, in the Day of judgment, God will not humiliate His Prophet and those who have joined him in belief. Their light will radiate in front of them and to their right. They will say: “O our Lord, forgive us and perfect our light; we bear witness that you are capable of doing anything you wish.”
66:9  O’ Mohammad, fight for the sake of pleasing God, with the disbelievers and the hypocrites; be stern with them. Know that their final home is Hell, which is the worse place to be
66:10  God, hereby, gives the disbelievers as an example the life story of the wives of Noah and Lot. They had the honor of being married to two of My righteous servants; but they did not follow their husbands’ way of faith and sided with their enemies against them. Their husbands, naturally, can not help them all against the God. On the Day of Judgment, these women will be told: “Enter the Fire along with those who are condemned to Hellfire.”
66:11  As for the believers, God introduces, as an example, the wife of Pharaoh. She prayed: “Lord provide me a building in your Paradise and save me from Pharaoh and the Hellfire which his deeds will take him into. I beg you to save me from the wickedness of the disbelievers
66:12  Another example of believers is Mary, daughter of Amran, who [unlike what the Jews claim] guarded her virginity. Then I (God) placed inside her body a Spirit of Mine. She believed in the words of her Lord and His Books and she was one of the Lord abiding people
