          In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful.

066.001

PICKTHAL: O Prophet! Why bannest thou that which Allah hath made lawful for
thee, seeking to please thy wives? And Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

066.002

PICKTHAL: Allah hath made lawful for you (Muslims) absolution from your
oaths (of such a kind), and Allah is your Protector. He is the Knower, the
Wise.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

066.003

PICKTHAL: When the Prophet confided a fact unto one of his wives and when
she afterward divulged it and Allah apprised him thereof, he made known (to
her) part thereof and passed over part. And when he told it her she said:
Who hath told thee? He said: The Knower, the Aware hath told me.

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.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

066.004

PICKTHAL: If ye twain turn unto Allah repentant, (ye have cause to do so)
for your hearts desired (the ban); and if ye aid one another against him
(Muhammad) then lo! Allah, even He, is his Protecting Friend, and Gabriel
and the righteous among the believers; and furthermore the angels are his
helpers.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

066.005

PICKTHAL: It may happen that his Lord, if he divorce you, will give him in
your stead wives better than you, submissive (to Allah), believing, pious,
penitent, devout, inclined to fasting, widows and maids.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

066.006

PICKTHAL: O ye who believe! Ward off from yourselves and your families a
Fire whereof the fuel is men and stones, over which are set angels strong,
severe, who resist not Allah in that which He commandeth them, but do that
which they are commanded.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

066.007

PICKTHAL: (Then it will be said): O ye who disbelieve! Make no excuses for
yourselves this day. Ye are only being paid for what ye used to do.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

066.008

PICKTHAL: O ye who believe! Turn unto Allah in sincere repentance! It may
be that your Lord will remit from you your evil deeds and bring you into
Gardens underneath which rivers flow, on the day when Allah will not abase
the Prophet and those who believe with him. Their light will run before
them and on their right hands; they will say: Our Lord! Perfect our light
for us, and forgive us! Lo! Thou art Able to do all things.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

066.009

PICKTHAL: O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites,
and be stern with them. Hell will be their home, a hapless journey's end.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

066.010

PICKTHAL: Allah citeth an example for those who disbelieve: the wife of
Noah and the wife of Lot, who were under two of Our righteous slaves yet
betrayed them so that they (the husbands) availed them naught against Allah
and it was said (unto them): Enter the Fire along with those who enter.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

066.011

PICKTHAL: And Allah citeth an example for those who believe: the wife of
Pharaoh when she said: My Lord! Build for me a home with thee in the
Garden, and deliver me from Pharaoh and his work, and deliver me from
evil-doing folk;

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

066.012

PICKTHAL: And Mary, daughter of 'Imran, whose body was chaste, therefor We
breathed therein something of Our Spirit. And she put faith in the words of
her Lord and His scriptures, and was of the obedient.
