The Forbidding

Revealed at Medina, Verses: 12 In the name of Allah, The Merciful, The All-merciful
  1. O Prophet, why dost thou forbid what God has made lawful to thee; thou seekest the good pleasure of thy wives; and God is Forgiving, Merciful.(1)
  2. God has indeed ordained for you the absolution of your oaths; and God is your Protector; and He is the Knowing, the Wise.(2)
  3. And when the Prophet confided to one of his wives a certain matter; then, when she told of it, and God informed him about it, he made known part of it and turned aside from a part; so when he told her of it, she said, `who told thee of this'; he said, `the One Knowing, the Aware has told me'.(3)
  4. If you (two) turn to God, for your hearts had inclined; but if you support each other against him, then God is his Protector, and also Gabriel and the righteous among the Believers; and, thereafter, the angels are his supporters.(4)
  5. It may be that if he divorces you, his Lord may give him in exchange wives better than you __ surrendering, believing, obedient, penitent, serving, journeying, previously married and virgins.(5)
  6. O Believers, save yourselves and your families from a Fire whose fuel are men and stones, and over which are set harsh, terrible angels, who do not disobey God in what He commands them, and they do what they are commanded.(6)
  7. `O unbelievers, do not make excuses for yourselves today; you are only being recompensed for what you have been doing.'(7)
  8. O Believers, turn to God in sincere repentance; it may be that your Lord will acquit you of your evils, and admit you to gardens underneath which rivers flow, on a day when God will not humiliate the Prophet and those who have believed with him; their light shall run before them and on their right; they shall say, `our Lord, perfect for us our light and forgive us; surely Thou art powerful over everything.'(8)
  9. O Prophet, struggle against the unbelievers and the hypocrites, and be hard with them; and their resort is Hell; and how evil is the destination!(9)
  10. God gives an example for the unbelievers __ the wife of Noah and the wife of Lot; they were under two of Our righteous servants, but they betrayed them, so they availed them nothing against God, and it was said, `enter the Fire with those who enter.'(10)
  11. And God gives an example for the Believers __ the wife of Pharaoh; when she said, `my Lord, build for me a house in Thy presence in Paradise, and save me from Pharaoh and his work, and save me from the wrong-doing people.'(11)
  12. And Mary, daughter of Imran, who guarded her virginity, so We breathed into it of Our Spirit; and she confirmed the Words of her Lord and His Books, and she was one of the obedient.(12)
