The Holy Quran, tr. by Yusuf Ali, [1934] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. 1. O Prophet! Why Holdest thou to be forbidden That which God has Made lawful to thee? Thou seekest to please Thy consorts. But God Is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. 2. God has already ordained For you, (O men), The dissolution of your oaths (In some cases): and God Is your Protector, and He Is Full of Knowledge And Wisdom. 3. When the Prophet disclosed A matter in confidence To one of his consorts, And she then divulged it (To another), and God made it Known to him, he confirmed Part thereof and repudiated A part. Then when he Told her thereof, she said, "Who told thee this?" He said, "He told me Who knows and is well-acquainted (With all things)" 4. If ye two turn in repentance To Him, your hearts Are indeed so inclined; But if ye back up Each other against him, Truly God is his Protector, And Gabriel, and (every) Righteous one among those Who believe,—and furthermore, The angels—will back (him) up. 5. It may be, if he Divorced you (all) That God will give him In exchange Consorts Better than you, Who submit (their wills), Who believe, who are devout, Who turn to God in repentance, Who worship (in humility), Who travel (for Faith) and fast,— Previously married or virgins. 6. O ye who believe! Save yourselves and your Families from a Fire Whose fuel is Men And Stones, over which Are (appointed) angels Stern (and) severe, Who flinch not (from Executing) the Commands They receive from God, But do (precisely) what They are commanded. 7. (They will say), "O ye Unbelievers! Make no excuses This Day! Ye are being But requited for All that ye did!" 8. O ye who believe! Turn to God With sincere repentance: In the hope that Your Lord will remove From you your ills And admit you to Gardens Beneath which Rivers flow,— The Day that God Will not permit To be humiliated The Prophet and those Who believe with him. Their Light will run Forward before them And by their right hands, While they say, "Our Lord! Perfect our Light for us, And grant us Forgiveness: For Thou hast power Over all things." 9. O Prophet! Strive hard Against the Unbelievers And the Hypocrites, And be firm against them. Their abode is Hell,— An evil refuge (indeed). 10. God sets forth, For an example To the Unbelievers, The wife of Noah And the wife of Lūṭ: They were (respectively) Under two of our righteous Servants, but they were False to their (husbands), And they profited nothing Before God on their account, But were told: "Enter ye The Fire along with (Others) that enter!" 11. And God sets forth, As an example To those who believe, The wife of Pharaoh: Behold she said: "O my Lord! build For me, in nearness To Thee, a mansion In the Garden, And save me from Pharaoh And his doings, And save me from Those that do wrong"; 12. And Mary the daughter Of ‘Imrān, who guarded Her chastity; and We Breathed into (her body) Of Our spirit; and she Testified to the truth Of the words of her Lord And of his Revelations, And was one of the Devout (servants).

3 Ahmed M = "If your vows prevent you from doing good, or acting rightly, or making peace between persons, you should expiate the vow, but not refrain from your good deed."
4 Ahmed M = "Facts present in 5529 will help us understand the message here. The matter was very important as there was a principle involved; details were not of enough importance for permanent record."
