Chapter 66

12 Verses

The Prohibition (Tahrim)

Section 1
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

1. O Prophet! why do you forbid (yourself) that which Allah has made lawful for you; you seek to please your wives; and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

2. Allah indeed has sanctioned for you the expiation of your oaths and Allah is your Protector, and He is the Knowing, the Wise.

3. And when the prophet secretly communicated a piece of information to one of his wives — but when she informed (others) of it, and Allah made him to know it, he made known part of it and avoided part; so when he informed her of it, she said: Who informed you of this? He said: The Knowing, the one Aware, informed me.

4. If you both turn - to Allah, then indeed your hearts are already inclined (to this); and if you back up each other against him, then-surely Allah it is Who is his Guardian, and Jibreel and the believers that do good, and the angels after that are the aiders.

5. Maybe, his Lord, if he divorce you, will give him in
