God has not made for a man two hearts in his interior. And He has not made your wives whom you declare unlawful your mothers. And He has not made your adopted sons your [true] sons. That is [merely] your saying by your mouths, but God says the truth, and He guides to the [right] way.
Call them by [the names of] their fathers; it is more just in the sight of God. But if you do not know their fathers - then they are your brothers in religion and those entrusted to you. And there is no blame upon you for that in which you have erred but [only for] what your hearts intended. And ever is God Forgiving and Merciful.
The prophet is more worthy of the believers than themselves, and his wives are [in the position of] their mothers. And those of [blood] relationship are more entitled [to inheritance] in the Book of God than the [other] believers and the emigrants, except that you may do to your close associates a kindness [through bequest]. That was in the Book inscribed.
O you who have believed, remember the favor of God upon you when armies came to [attack] you and We sent upon them a wind and armies [of angels] you did not see. And ever is God, of what you do, Seeing.
And when a faction of them said, "O people of Yathrib, there is no stability for you, so return." And a party of them asked permission of the prophet, saying, "Indeed, our houses are unprotected," while they were not exposed. They did not intend except to flee.
Say, "Who is it that can protect you from God if He intends for you an ill or intends for you a mercy?" And they will not find for themselves besides God any protector or any helper. *Isaiah 43:11, *Hosea 13:4
Indisposed toward you. And when fear comes, you see them looking at you, their eyes revolving like one being overcome by death. But when fear departs, they lash you with sharp tongues, indisposed toward [any] good. Those have not believed, so God has rendered their deeds worthless, and ever is that, for God, easy.
They think the companies have not [yet] withdrawn. And if the companies should come [again], they would wish they were in the desert among the bedouins, inquiring [from afar] about your news. And if they should be among you, they would not fight except for a little.
And when the believers saw the companies, they said, "This is what God and His messenger had promised us, and God and His messenger spoke the truth." And it increased them only in faith and acceptance.
And He brought down those who supported them among the People of the Scripture from their fortresses and cast terror into their hearts [so that] a party you killed, and you took captive a party.
O wives of the prophet, you are not like anyone among women. If you fear God, then do not be soft in speech [to men], lest he in whose heart is disease should covet, but speak with appropriate speech.
And abide in your houses and do not display yourselves as [was] the display of the former times of ignorance. And establish prayer and give alms and obey God and His messenger. God intends only to remove from you the impurity [of sin], O people of the [prophet's] household, and to purify you with [extensive] purification.
Indeed, the men in submission [to God] and women in submission [to God], the believing men and believing women, the obedient men and obedient women, the truthful men and truthful women, the patient men and patient women, the humble men and humble women, the charitable men and charitable women, the fasting men and fasting women, the men who guard their private parts and the women who do so, and the men who remember God often and the women who do so - for them God has prepared forgiveness and a great reward.
It is not for a believing man or a believing woman, when God and His messenger have decided a matter, that they should [thereafter] have any choice about their affair. And whoever disobeys God and His messenger has certainly strayed into clear error.
And [remember, O Muhammad], when you said to the one on whom God bestowed favor and you bestowed favor, "Keep your wife and fear God," while you concealed within yourself that which God is to disclose. And you feared the people, while God has more right that you fear Him. So when Zayd had no longer any need for her, We married her to you in order that there not be upon the believers any discomfort concerning the wives of their adopted sons when they no longer have need of them. And ever is the command of God accomplished.
There is not to be upon the prophet any discomfort concerning that which God has imposed upon him. [This is] the established way of God with those [prophets] who have passed on before. And ever is the command of God a destiny decreed.
O you who have believed, when you marry believing women and then divorce them before you have touched them, then there is not for you any waiting period to count concerning them. So provide for them and give them a gracious release.
O prophet, indeed We have made lawful to you your wives to whom you have given their due compensation and those you possess by oath from what God has returned to you [of captives] and the daughters of your paternal uncles and the daughters of your paternal aunts and the daughters of your maternal uncles and the daughters of your maternal aunts who emigrated with you and a believing woman if she gives herself to the prophet [and] if the prophet wishes to marry her, [this is] only for you, excluding the [other] believers. We certainly know what We have made obligatory upon them concerning their wives and those they possess by oath, [but this is for you] in order that there will be upon you no discomfort. And ever is God Forgiving and Merciful.
You, may put aside whom you will of them or take to yourself whom you will. And any that you desire of those [wives] from whom you had [temporarily] separated - there is no blame upon you [in returning her]. That is more suitable that they should be content and not grieve and that they should be satisfied with what you have given them - all of them. And God knows what is in your hearts. And ever is God Knowing and Forbearing.
Not lawful to you, are [any additional] women after [this], nor [is it] for you to exchange them for [other] wives, even if their beauty were to please you, except what you possess by oath. And ever is God, over all things, an Observer.
O you who have believed, do not enter the houses of the prophet except when you are permitted for a meal, without awaiting its readiness. But when you are invited, then enter; and when you have eaten, disperse without seeking to remain for conversation. Indeed, that [behavior] was troubling the prophet, and he is shy of [dismissing] you. But God is not shy of the truth. And when you ask [his wives] for something, ask them from behind a partition. That is purer for your hearts and their hearts. And it is not [conceivable or lawful] for you to harm the messenger of God or to marry his wives after him, ever. Indeed, that would be in the sight of God an enormity.
There is no blame upon women concerning their fathers or their sons or their brothers or their brothers' sons or their sisters' sons or their women or those they possess by oath. And fear God. Indeed God is ever, over all things, Witness.
O prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves [part] of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is God Forgiving and Merciful.
If the hypocrites and those in whose hearts is disease and those who spread rumors in Medina do not cease, We will surely incite you against them; then they will not remain your neighbors therein except for a little.
[This is] the established way of God with those who passed on before; and you will not find in the way of God any change. *Genesis 7:23, *Joshua 10:1, *Joshua 10:40, *Joshua 11:12, *Luke 17:27, *Luke 17:29, *25:37 - 39
