66:1  O’ ‘Prophet’! Why do you forbid what Allâh has made lawful for you, seeking to please your wives? Lo! Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
66:2  Allâh indeed has sanctioned for you the expiation of your oaths. Lo! Allâh is your Guardian, the All-Knowing and the All-Wise.
66:3  The ‘Prophet’ disclosed a matter in confidence to one of his wives (Hafsa bint Umar), and then she divulged the secret to (Ā'ishah bint Abī Bakr). Lo! Allâh made it known to him. Thus, he informed his wife of part of the issue, and disregarded part. She asked: "Who informed you of this?" He said: "I was informed by the One Who is the All-Knowing, the All-Aware.”
66:4  If you both (Hafsa & Ā'ishah) do turn in repentance to Allâh as your hearts are already so inclined, then it will be better for you both. But if it happens that you band together against him, then (you’ll need to know that) Allâh is his Guardian, and so is ‘Gabriel’ and the righteous among the ‘Monotheistic Believers’, and furthermore, the ‘Angels’ are his supporters.
66:5  Maybe, his Lord, if he divorces you, will substitute other wives in your place, who are better than you, submissive, faithful, obedient, repentant, worshipers, given to fasting, either previously married, or virgins.
66:6  O’ you who adhere firmly to Islamic Monotheism, protect yourselves and your families from a Fire whose fuel is men and stones. Over it are ‘Angels’, vigorous and vehement. They comply with everything Allâh has commanded them. And they do whatever they are commanded.
66:7  O’ you who excessively indulge in disbelief (in Allâh), make no excuses for yourselves this day. You are only being paid for what you used to do.
66:8  O’ you who adhere firmly to Islamic Monotheism, turn to Allâh with truthful repentance. It maybe your Lord intends to deliver you from all consequences of your sins, and admit you into Gardens underneath which rivers flow, on the day on which Allâh will not humiliate the ‘Prophet’ and those who attain Faith in Allâh with him. Their light will coruscate before them on their right hands. They will say: “Our Lord, make our light perfect for us, and forgive us! Lo! You are capable of doing whatever You will.”
66:9  O’ ‘Prophet’, strive hard against those lack Faith in Allâh , as well as against the ‘Hypocrites’, and be so tough on them. Their abode will be ‘Hellfire’. What a dreadful journey’s end!
66:10  Allâh sets forth an example for those who excessively indulge in disbelief (in Allâh), the wife of ‘Noah’ and the wife of ‘Lot’. They were under two of our righteous servants but they both betrayed them. Thus, they benefited them not against (the will of) Allâh, and it was said unto them: “Enter both the Fire along with those who enter."
66:11  Allâh sets forth an example to those who attain to Faith in Allâh, the wife of ‘Pharaoh’ when she said: "My Lord, build a home for me in ‘Al- Jannah’ near you, and save me from ‘Pharaoh’ and his work, and save me from those who are grossly unfair and morally wrong).”
66:12  Also ‘Mary’, the daughter of ‘Imrān, who maintained her chastity. Thus, We breathed something of Our Spirit into (her womb). She placed her faith in the Word of her Lord, and His Scriptures, and was among of the obedient.
