Surah 66. Surah al Tahreem

Surah 66. Surah al Tahreem (The Prohibition)

Bismillah ir Rahman ir Raheem
In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

  1. O Prophet!
    Why do you forbid what Allah has made lawful for you?
    You strive to please your wives,
    And Allah is the Forgiver, the Merciful.
  2. Truly, Allah has ordained for you
    The dissolution of your vows,
    And Allah is your Protector,
    And He is the Knower, the Wise.
  3. And when the Prophet disclosed a secret matter to one of his wives,
    But when she shared it (with others),
    And Allah made this known to him,
    (The Prophet) disclosed (to her) a part of it and passed over a part of it;
    And when he informed her of it, she asked: “who told you this?”
    He said: “I was informed by the Knower, the Aware.”
  4. (It would be good) if you repent before Allah,
    And verily, your hearts have wandered off,
    And if you help each other about this,
    Then indeed Allah is his Protector;
    And Gabriel,
    And the righteous believers,
    And the angels, besides that, are his helpers.
  5. If he were to divorce you,
    It is possible that soon his Rabb will provide him other wives,
    Better than you—
    Surrendering to Allah,
    Certain of their faith,
    Obedient (to Allah’s commands),
    Worshiping (and serving Allah),
    Keeping their fasts,
    Previously married,
    And virgins.
  6. O you who have certainty of faith!
    Protect yourselves and your households from the Fire,
    And its fuel is humans and stones,
    Watching over it are angels stern and severe,
    And they do not disobey what Allah commands them to do,
    And they do what they are commanded.
  7. O you who disbelieve!
    Do not make excuses today!
    You are recompensed but for what you did.
  8. O you who have certainty of faith!
    Repent with Allah, repentance sincere,
    There is hope that your Rabb will cover up your wrong doings for you,
    And admit you to Gardens beneath which flow streams (of Divine grace),
    The Day when Allah will not dishonor the Prophet and the believers with him,
    Their Light will race forward ahead of them,
    And their right hands will say: “O our Rabb!
    Complete for us our Light!
    And forgive us!
    Indeed, You have power over all affairs!”
  9. O Prophet! Struggle against the disbelievers and the hypocrites,
    And be stern with them;
    And their abode is Hell;
    And (it is) an awful destination!
  10. Allah brings forth the parable for the disbelievers
    Of the wife of Noah and the wife of Lot—
    They were with two servants from among Our righteous servants;
    Then, they let them down,
    So neither of the two was of benefit to them before Allah,
    And it was said to them:
    “Enter the Fire along with those entering!”
  11. And Allah brings forth the example of the wife of the Pharaoh,
    For those who have certainty of faith.
    When she said: “O my Rabb!
    Provide for me a home in Your presence in the Garden,
    And deliver me from the Pharaoh and his deeds,
    And deliver me from an oppressive people.”
  12. And of Mary, daughter of Imran,
    Who fortified (guarded) her virtue;
    And We breathed into it of Our Spirit,
    And she confirmed the Words of her Rabb,
    And His books,
    And she was among the devout.
