O’ Prophet! Why do you forbid what Allâh has made lawful for you, striving diligently to please your wives? Lo! Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
Allâh indeed has sanctioned for you the expiation of your oaths. Lo! Allâh is your Guardian, the All-Knowing and the All-Wise.
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. So 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.”
If you both, (Hafsa & Ā'ishah), turn to Allâh in repentance, ( it will be better for you both as) your hearts are indeed so inclined (to oppose what the Prophet likes). But if it happens that you band together against him, (then bear in mind that) Allâh is his Guardian, as also Gabriel and the righteous among the Monotheistic Believers, and further more all the Angels are also his supporters.
It may happen that 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.
O’ you who Live by Faith! Guard yourselves and your families against 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.
O’ you who persistently refuse to yield to the Truth! Make no excuses for yourselves this day. You are only being paid for what you used to do.
O’ you who Live by Faith! Turn to Allâh with truthful repentance, may be that your Lord intends to deliver you from all the consequences of your iniquitous deeds and admit you into Gardens underneath which rivers flow on the day on which Allâh will not humiliate the Prophet and those who Live by Faith 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 Most Capable of doing whatever You desire.”
O’ Prophet, strive diligently against those who persistently refuse to yield to the Truth and those who make a false profession of Faith. And be so tough on them. Their abode will be Hellfire. What a dreadful journey’s end!
Allâh sets forth an example for those who persistently refuse to yield to the Truth: the wife of Noah and the wife of Lot. They were under two of our righteous servants but they both betrayed them. So they did not benefit them against (the wrath of) Allâh, and it was said unto them: “Enter both the Fire along with those who enter."
Allâh sets forth an example to those who live by Faith: the wife of Pharaoh when she said: "My Lord, build a home for me in Al-Jannah near you, save me from Pharaoh and his work, and save me from those who have voluntarily and consciously abandoned the Full Knowledge of the Truth in favour of their own whims”.
Also Mary, the daughter of ‘Imrān, who guarded her chastity. So We breathed into her of Our Spirit. She placed her Faith in the Word of her Lord and in His Scriptures; and was among of the obedient.
