AL TEHREEM (THE FORBIDDANCE)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
[Tehreem 66:1] O dear Prophet (Mohammed peace and
blessings be upon him)! Why do you forbid for yourself the things that
Allah has made lawful for you? You wish to please some of your wives; and
Allah is Oft Forgiving, Most Merciful.
[Tehreem 66:2] Allah has ordained expiation for your oaths;
and Allah is your Master; and Allah is the All Knowing, the Wise.
[Tehreem 66:3] And when the Holy Prophet confided a matter
to one of his wives; so when she disclosed it and Allah conveyed this to
the Holy Prophet, he told her part of it and held back a part; so when
the Holy Prophet informed her about it, she said, Who informed you?;
he said, The All Knowing, the All Aware has informed me.
[Tehreem 66:4] If you both, the wives of the Holy Prophet,
incline towards Allah, for indeed your hearts have deviated a little; and
if you come together against him (the Holy Prophet - peace and blessings
be upon him) then indeed Allah is his Supporter, and Jibreel and the
virtuous believers are also his aides; and in addition the angels are also
his aides. (Allah has created several supporters for the believers.)

his Lord will give him wives better than you in your place -widows and
maidens who are obedient, believing, respectful, penitent, serving and
[Tehreem 66:6] O People who Believe! Save yourselves and
your families from the fire, the fuel of which is men and stones appointed
over it are the extremely strict angels, who do not refuse the command
of Allah and carry out whatever they are commanded.
[Tehreem 66:7] O disbelievers! Do not feign excuses this
day; you will only be repaid what you used to do.
